WEST POINT, Miss. - The University of Cincinnati women's golf team finished ninth at the season-opening Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational on Wednesday (Sept. 12) at the Old Waverly Golf Club.
Alex Carl set a career low with a three-round total of 74-76-73=233, which was good for a tie for 13th place. Her previous three-round low was a 74-79-76=229 in her very first tournament as a collegian, the Napa River Grill Invitational in 2009.
Olivia Dose finished tied for 21st with rounds of 74-71-81=226. Sophomore Mackenzie Moir was consistent throughout the tournament and shaved three strokes off her previous career-low three-round total with rounds of 78-78-77=233. Maria Roos was just back of Moir with rounds of 83-73-80=236, which tied for 38th place.
The Bearcats posted a team total of 309-298-311=918 to finish just one shot behind BIG EAST foe USF (307-314-296=917), who finished eighth. Kentucky (294-294-290=878) won the team crown by two shots over Tulane (290-296-294=880).
Gemma Dryburgh of Tulane posted rounds of 69-70-69=208 to earn medalist honors.
"The team is disappointed with the scoring results, but we saw some good things for the start of the season," said Director of Golf Janet Carl. "Alex turned a bad ball-striking day into a good scoring day and posted a career-best tournament total."
The Bearcats are next in action on Sept. 17 at the Cardinal Cup in Louisville.
