DESTIN, Fla. – The Huntingdon women's golf team turned in its third top-5 finish of the fall with a fifth-place finish in the Golfweek Division III Fall Preview.
The Lady Hawks shot 317 on Tuesday to finish with a three-round total of 952. The three-round total is the best in program history, breaking the previous 54-hole total by 41 strokes.
During the tournament, the Lady Hawks turned in the second best round in program history on Sunday (314), tied what was then the fourth-best round on Monday (321) before finishing the tournament with what is now the fourth best round in Lady Hawks' history.
The University of Texas-Tyler won the tournament with a score of 912 and Washington University-St. Louis was second at 919.
"The girls held on to the fifth spot and finished ahead of top-ranked Carthage in probably the best field of the season," Huntingdon Director of Golf Dave Schreyer said. "Our girls can run with the best in the country and that's a fact. We have to tighten a few things, but we are becoming more and more confident each day. The first national poll comes out Wednesday and I am very anxious to see where we stand."
Washington University's Connie Zhou was the tournament medalist at 5-over-par 221. Huntingdon freshman Kelsey Spivey and sophomore LeeAnn Cahoon both finished within 11 strokes of first. Spivey tied for 11th at 231 and Cahoon was 13th at 232.
