Brevard wraps up play at Etowah IntercollegiateSeptember 23, 2014
ETOWAH, N.C. – Three Brevard women’s golfers rounded out the final day of competition at the Etowah Intercollegiate by improving on their first round scores.
The Tornados were ineligible for a team score because only three individuals competed. Four scores are needed to compile a team result. But all three Tornados improved from Monday’s first round, including a 27-stroke improvement from Stephanie Thomas while Kelsie Rhyne, who led Brevard with a 28th-place finish, and ZeAijah Mooney saw their scores decrease by two and three strokes, respectively.
Carson-Newman’s Elizabeth England took the individual title with a four-over 148 for the tournament, winning by two strokes over Newberry’s Sophia Opitz. Opitz helped the Wolves to the overall crown, however, as Newberry’s 619 was good enough to win the event by seven strokes over Carson-Newman.
Fellow South Atlantic Conference schools Lincoln Memorial and Coker finished third and fourth, while Belmont Abbey rounded out the tournament field in fifth place.
The Tornados, who will play seven of their ten competitions in the spring season, next compete at the Pioneer Classic hosted by Tusculum on November 1 and 2.
