App State women’s golf finished 10th at the Georgia State Invitational Tuesday, highlighted by Sarah Hardin’s personal-best effort.
Hardin, a senior from West Jefferson, North Carolina, led the Mountaineer starting five by firing a career-low 54-hole total of 222. Hardin’s 222, which ranks tied for 10th in program history for the lowest three-round total, placed 12th on the player leaderboard among a field of 89 golfers.
As a team, App State carded its lowest team round of the 2020-21 season with a second-round 304. The Mountaineers closed with a 305 to post a final team score of 916, a season low.
“We are still a few course management errors away to get that sub-300 score,” head coach Heather Brown said. “We had some personal bests this week and played stronger on our finishing holes. We’re looking forward to Mimosa Hills next week.”
Xavier won the team title behind an 882 team score, and High Point University’s Samantha Vodry won the individual crown at 5-under-par for the event.
Carrie Catherine Ganim posted a 227 effort to place tied for 24th individually, her fifth top-25 career finish. Abby Bolt finished one stroke back of Ganim and tied for 28th on the player leaderboard.
App State will be back on the links for one more event before the Sun Belt Conference Championship as the Mountaineers are set to host the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate from Morganton, North Carolina, on April 5-6.
