Lee Golf Seventh at NCAA National Tournament

Friday, May 19, 2017
A fast start helped propel the Lee women's golf team up to seventh place after three rounds of the NCAA Division II National Championship on Friday from the Findlay Country Club.

The Lady Flames battled through a chilly rain and more blustery wind to climb up two spots from ninth to seventh on the leaderboard after shooting a 317 total. Lightning delayed played at 1 p.m. as Lee had just made the turn. Play resumed at 2 p.m.

Freshman Haverly Harrold shot even par on her first nine holes and finished with a 78 to pace the Lady Flames in round three.
Caroline Moore and Sam Burrus followed closely behind with a pair of 79's. Burrus finished her final six holes at 1-under par and hit a big seven-foot putt on the treacherous ninth green to save par and shoot her second consecutive round of 79.

Annika Gino improved her score for the second straight round and carded an 81 for Lee while Anne Hedegaard rounded things out with an 82.

"I thought the key today was focus," said head coach John Maupion. "I thought from the start today we were all engaged and focused on each shot. Yesterday we were a little careless but today we really focused on every shot. My hope is we come out the same way and are aggressive tomorrow and just enjoy the moment and opportunity."

Team Race
The nation's top ranked program Barry University (921) leapfrogged Dallas Baptist (924) after shooting a 305 in round three to grab a three stroke lead in the chase for the national championship. The University of Indianapolis is also within striking distance sitting just six strokes back with a 927 total.

West Texas A&M follows in fourth place with a 934 followed by St. Mary's (951) in fifth. Henderson State (957) leads the Lady Flames by two strokes for the sixth spot while Arkansas Tech, Augustana and Rollins are in a three-way tie for eighth at 962. The final two teams in the field are Missouri St.-Louis (965) and Grand Valley State (978).

Medalist Race
Lee's Moore is tied for 17th after firing a 234 total through the first three rounds while Burrus is tied for 34th with a 240.

Dallas Baptist's Ann Parmerter and Marie Coors are tied atop the leaderboard with a 224 total. Barry's Charlotte Puts is three strokes back at 227 while Hanna Harrison (228) of Dallas Baptist and Casey Wild (229) of Tarleton State round out the top five.

Up Next
The final round of the championship for the Lady Flames will begin on Saturday at 8:55 a.m. Temperatures are supposed to jump back up to a more seasonably high of 77 but rain could play an issue once again.
