ATHENS, Ga. - The No. 29 Auburn women's golf team completed play at the Lady Bulldog Individual Championship in Athens, Ga., on Saturday. The tournament was changed to 18 holes of play because of morning frost. Alex Harrell led the Tigers in the tournament with a top 10 finish.
Hosted by the University of Georgia, the Lady Bulldog Individual Championship was an 18-hole tournament played at the UGA Golf Course. The par 72 course played at 6,355 yards for the tournament.
"Alex had a consistent, solid day and close to a really good round," said head coach Kim Evans. "Jamie and Nicole played a lot better than their score showed."
Freshman Harrell placed highest for the Tigers carding a 4-over 76 to tie for 8th. Sophomore Nicole Quinn and freshman Jamie Yun finished tied for 19th with 8-over 80s, and freshman Megan Wilshire withdrew.
Overall, Florida's Mia Piccio placed first with a 3-under 69.
"We saw a lot of good things today in cold weather conditions," said Evans. "We have a few days of good practice to get ready for Puerto Rico."
