UNCG 16th after 36 holes at Cougar Classic
HANAHAN, S.C. – UNC Greensboro recorded its second straight team score of 303 on Monday to sit in 16th place after 36 holes at the Cougar Classic Women’s Golf Tournament.
Freshman Erica Creed, a product of Northwest Forsyth HS, recorded UNCG’s best score of the day on Monday, shooting a 75. Creed, whose first collegiate round was scarred by a double bogey and triple bogey on Nos. 17 and 18, respectively, on Sunday, came back very nicely on Monday. She birdied Nos. 6 and 9 to finish the front side in 35. She started the back 9 with bogeys on Nos. 10 and 11, but recovered to go two-over the rest of the way and finish with the day three-over par.
Ashley Mylton, Annelie Weimenhog and Ashley Parrott all shot 76 to help the Spartans to their 303 for the day.
Tennessee sits atop the team standings at even par 576. The Lady Vols shot 288 for the second straight day to hold a three-shot lead over Notre Dame. Texas is in third place, five shots back.
Notre Dame’s So Hyun Park took over the individual lead at five-under par 139. She fired a 69 on Monday to have a one shot lead over teammate Lisa Maunu, the first round leader, and Tennessee’s Marci Turner. Maunu had shot a 66 in the opening round, but shot a 74 on Monday.
Tuesday’s final round gets underway with a shotgun start at 9 am.
