Lee Women Sixth At UINDY Golf Invitational

Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Playing against a field of nine ranked teams, including seven in the top-15, the No. 19 Lee women's golf team fired a 302 in Tuesday's final round to finish tied for sixth at the UINDY Invitational from the Prairie View Golf Club.

The Lady Flames (913) picked up wins against three Top 25 teams and tied with 10th-ranked Limestone in the 54-hole tournament.

Senior Haverly Harrold was dialed in during the final round as she carded an even-par 72 and finished 13th with a 223 total (73, 78, 72).
Sophomore Emily Felix followed in 23rd with rounds of 78, 74, 77 (229).

"I was proud of our team for finishing with our best round of the week, and one of the low rounds of the day. The conditions were more challenging today, but for the most part we handled them well," said Lee head coach John Maupin. "We were a little sloppy this week, I felt like we gave away some really easy shots this tournament.  It's the first tournament of the season though, and we'll get back home and get some of this cleaned up before our next one."

The University of Indianapolis protected its home course and earned the victory with an 883 total. The Greyhounds are ranked No. 4 in the nation. No. 9 Findlay (889) was six shots back and placed second. No. 5 Lynn and No. 13 Saint Leo tied for third at 896. Top-ranked Barry rounded out the top five with a 902.

"I like the mental toughness that I saw from some of our players today though. Carson and Emily did a good job of hanging in there for our team, and Haverly came through with a really strong round today," concluded Maupin.

Freshman Supuschaya Srinchantamit from Thailand fired rounds of 76, 78, 78 (232) and placed 32nd in her first collegiate tournament. Sophomore Carson McKie followed at 234 and put together a nice final round 3-over par 75 to place 34th. Senior Annika Gino wrapped up the scoring and she carded a 79, 76, 82 (237) good enough for a 42nd place finish.

Helen Kruezer of Lynn rolled to a 10-stroke victory in the medalist competition as she fired a 9-under par 207 total. Kruezer tied the course record with a 65 in round two.  Pilar Echeverria and Hunter Nugent of Indy tied for second with a 1-over par 217. Saint Leo's Francesca Santoni (T8th) aced the 120-yd, par-3 12th in the second round on Monday.

The Lady Flames will be back to work on Sept. 21 and 22 as they take part in the Battle of Old South in Bluffton, S.C. The tournament is hosted by UNC-Pembroke.
