CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati women’s golf team jumped four places into 11th place during the final round of the Sir Pizza Terrapin Challenge at Shula’s Golf Club in Miami Lakes, Fla. The Bearcats finished the two-day, 16-team tournament hitting 75 strokes over par for a three-round total of 939 strokes (321-317-301).
UC rebounded from the first two rounds on Monday to record the fifth-best score of the day on Tuesday. The Bearcats made the largest improvement amongst all the teams during the third round.
“I am very proud of the team and their effort today” said head coach Janet Carl. “It is hard to be competitive against teams that play year-round when this is our first competitive round since October. This tournament showed us what we need to work on and we are anxious to get back to work.”
Junior Olivia Dose (Goteborg, Sweden/Goteborg Hogre Samskola) led the Bearcats with an overall score of 233 (80-78-75) and finished in a tie for 45th place. Senior Maria Roos (Uppsala, Sweden/Mississippi State) finished two strokes behind with 235 (79-81-75) while senior Alex Carl (Union, Ky./Notre Dame Academy) and junior Andrea Malek (Tibro Sweden/Klippans Gymnasieskola) each recorded a score of 237 (83-78-76 and 82-80-75, respectively). Sophomore Mackenzie Moir rounded out the field for the Bearcats with a 245 (80-85-80).
North Carolina State led the pack with a total score of 874 (293-297-284). Individually, N.C. State’s Lindsay McGetrick took home first place with a four under par performance (70-71-71=212).
The Bearcats will be back in action on March 8-10 when they travel to Mesa, Ariz., to participate in the Clover Cup.
