Lee Women Fourth At Golfweek NCAA D2 Fall Invitational

Tuesday, October 8, 2019
Led by a top five finish from sophomore Emily Felix the No. 14 Lee women's golf team placed fourth at the Golfweek NCAA D2 Fall Invitational on Tuesday from the Las Colinas Course.

Felix fired rounds of 75 and 74 to place tied for fifth. Senior Haverly Harrold followed in T13th after an even-par 72 in the final round to pair with a 79 on Monday. As a team the Lady Flames shot 307-299-606.

"Solid finish for our team this week. It's always crazy how close it can end up being as we were just eight shots from the win, and that line is so thin.
This was a strong field, and I don't think there's any doubt we are as good as anyone that's here. I don't think we've clicked on all cylinders yet, but we're close. Today especially I felt like we came out and really competed well," said head coach John Maupin.

"It was really nice to see Emily lead is with a Top five finish, she's been working hard, and is a really strong player. "It's good to see her in the hunt. We got three strong rounds today from Haverly, Yui (Supuschaya Srinchantamit), and Emily, those were definitely good out there today," he concluded.

Srinchantamit and Carson McKie tied with a 153 total and finished 19th while Annika Gino rounded out the scoring with an 83, 84, 167.

No. 8 Saint Leo took home the team title as it edged top-ranked Dallas Baptist by a stroke, 598-599. No. 15 Florida Southern followed right behind with at 600 in third, six shots ahead of the Lady Flames. The talented field featured seven teams ranked in the latest WGCA Top 25 poll.

The Lions' Francesca Santoni took home medalist honors with a 4-under 68 on Monday and even par 72 today for a 140 total. Amanda Gartrell (Florida Southern) finished second, six strokes back at 146.

"We'll come back and break this one down a little bit and get ready for a quick turnaround to North Georgia," concluded Maupin.

The Lady Flames will get right back to work on Monday as they take part in the Lee Ann Noble Memorial from Dahlonega, Ga. Lee won the event back in 2017.
