App State Women’s Golf Finish 11th at Strutter Gus Invitational

App State women’s golf finished 11th amid soaked conditions and a big field at the Strutter Gus Invitational Monday.

The Mountaineers concluded the 54-hole event by posting a final team score of 971, including a strong finish with a 311 in the final round.

Four Mountaineers posted individual rounds in the 70s Monday despite a steady rain to close out the event.

Seminole State captured the team title, while Jacksonville State’s Ana Perez Altuna won the individual crown. Georgia Southern, the event host at its university course, finished second as a team.

Due to darkness Sunday, the final seven holes of round two were completed Monday morning, followed by round three.

Carrie Catherine Ganim led all App State golfers with a three-round score of 240 and tied for 33rd on the player leaderboard. Ganim improved by five strokes each round and carded the lowest round of the event among the Mountaineer starting five with her final-round 75.

Kayla Ward led the Black and Gold early in round one with an opening-round 80 before closing out with a third-round 78 on her way to a 54-hole total of 244.

Sarah Hardin also improved each round of the spring opener. Hardin posted a final-round 79 for a 246 tournament score.

Mogie Adamchik carded a 248 event score, and Melany Chong finished with a 250 to round out the Mountaineer starting five.

App State will be back in action this weekend, Feb. 26-27, at the Aggie Spring Invitational in Greensboro, North Carolina. The upcoming invitational is hosted by North Carolina A&T at Forest Oaks Country Club.
