The women’s golf team finished sixth this past weekend at the CSU Wendy’s Invitational in Charleston, S.C. Three Orange and Blue players finished in the top 25 or better with Kasha Scott ’14 heading the team with a seventh place finish.

After the two rounds, Scott ended with a final score of 149 which was good enough for her second top-10 finish of the season.

“I was just trying to make pars and avoid any big numbers at all costs,” Scott said. 

Bridget Wilcox ’14 finished in tied for 21st with 154 and Minjoo Lee ’12 finished in t-23rd with a 155.

In the nice weather the women had a strong showing in their second to last tournament of the year. The Bison shot 310 in the first round and 309 in the second. For the first time all season the team was not playing in the rain.

“The weather was finally nice–hot and sunny; the first tournament it hasn’t rained the entire season. It was a great tournament and great course, we have all worked a lot on our game and it is definitely showing,” Wilcox said.

The team has continually posted good results throughout this fall season and the key to the team’s early success has certainly been the consistently solid play of the sophomores.

“Kasha and Bridget played great and they have been playing well all season,” Lee said.

Wilcox and Scott have been providing solid scoring all fall long, especially Scott. This t-7th is her fourth t-20 finish in five tournaments this fall.

This weekend, Scott and the rest of the Bison look to continue this hot streak in their last tournament of the season at the Palmetto Invitational in Kiawah Island, S.C.
