No. 3 Women's Golf Takes 12th Place Finish at Bryan National Collegiate
April 4, 2010
GREENSBORO, N.C. - The third-ranked Auburn women's golf team claimed 12th place at the Bryan National Collegiate after a third-round score of 300. The team finished with a tournament-total 36-over par 900 to close out the regular season.
The Bryan National Collegiate was co-hosted by North Carolina-Greensboro and Wake Forest and took place at the par-72, 6,323-yard Players Course at the Bryan Park Golf and Enrichment Center.
"The numbers were not there and the placement on the scoreboard was not there, but we really had a great tournament," Auburn head coach Kim Evans said. "We had a lot of improvement this week. You look at your starters who were there for us and maybe you don't see it on the scoreboard, but we really had a solid week."
Leading the way for the Tigers was freshman Carlie Yadloczky, who continued her solid play and finished her final round with a 1-over 73. The Casselberry, Fla., native was facing a 3-over round until the final two holes, but posted back-to-back birdies to end at 1-over and secure an eighth-place finish. Yadloczky carded a tournament-total 1-over par 217, setting a new 54-hole season-low score for the freshman.
"Carlie really stepped up this weekend and got a top-10 finish," Evans said of Yadloczky. "She had a chance to win it and she really played well. I was happy for her and proud of her play this weekend."
Finishing the weekend in a tie for 26th was sophomore Haley Wilson, who managed to improve her score again and post a 1-over 73 in the final round of action. Wilson, who started the three-day tournament with a 76, tallied a second-round of 74 before dropping her score again to close out the weekend with a 223 (+7) tournament-total.
The Tigers' third-best score of the final day came from sophomore Patricia Sanz's 4-over par 76. Sanz also lowered her score in three-consecutive rounds, finishing with a 17-over 233 mark. The Madrid, Spain, native finished in a tie for 67th.
"Haley and Patricia each got better every day and really played well for us," Evans said. "Haley put together a great weekend and Patricia made some solid improvements in her game."
Rounding out the Auburn scorecard for the third round was Madison Overbey, who carded a tournament-low 5-over 78 to finish out the weekend. Her tournament-total of 248 landed the sophomore in 93rd.
After carded rounds of 73 and 76, redshirt junior Karlin Beck dropped a final-round 80 to finish the tournament in a tie for 54th with a 13-over 229.
"It was a great experience for us and I think our players gained some valuable experience," Evans said. "All in all, we played with a lot of consistency, getting better after the first day and that's important. We did a lot of great things that are going to pay off for us."
Taking the top team honors was Florida State with a 9-over par 873. Co-host Wake Forest followed with an 874 (+10), while Ohio State, Vanderbilt and Duke rounded out the top-five with 22-over par 886s.
Individually, Wake Forest's Cheyenne Woods held the lead to take the top-spot with a 5-under 211 weekend performance. Tennessee's Nathalie Mansson (-3), Virginia's Brittany Altomare (-2), Duke's Lindy Duncan (-2) and Florida State's Macarena Silva (-1) rounded out the top-five, respectively.
The tournament marks the end of the regular season for the Tigers as Auburn returns to action April 16-18 at the SEC Tournament. The Tigers will attempt to defend their conference title at the North River Yacht Club in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
"We will give the girls a few days off because they have a lot of studying to do and need to catch up on their rest," Evans said. "We have to prepare for that golf course and be ready to play hard."
