DESTIN, Fla. – The Huntingdon women's golf team turned in another solid round on Monday and is in sixth place entering Tuesday's final round of the Golfweek Division III Fall Preview.
After shooting the second best round in program history on Sunday with a 314, the Lady Hawks shot 321 on Monday for a 635 after two rounds. Entering the fall season, 321 was the program record for one round. After six rounds this fall, it is tied for fourth best.
Washington University-St. Louis leads the tournament at 603, the University of Texas-Tyler is second at 621, Washington and Lee University is third at 625, Rhodes College is fourth at 627 and Carthage College is fifth at 633.
Washington University's Connie Zhou shot an even-par 72 on Sunday and a 2-over 74 on Monday and leads the field at 2-over 146. Two Huntingdon golfers are within 10 strokes of first place.
Freshman Kelsey Spivey is seven strokes off the lead and tied for eighth at 153 and sophomore LeeAnn Cahoon is tied for 15th at 156. Behind Spivey and Cahoon, sophomore Savannah Humber has a two-round total of 160, freshman Lindsey Huff is at 166 and sophomore Courtney Harville is at 179.
"The girls survived a tough day," Huntingdon Director of Golf Dave Schreyer said. "The wind was up and the rain rolled in, but we held our ground. Kelsey led the team with a really solid even-par on the back nine. She is getting better every tournament.
"It's encouraging that we are hanging tough with the best teams in Division III golf and we are only playing freshmen and sophomores."
