AUBURN - The Auburn women's golf team concluded play for the fall portion of its 2012-2013 season after playing in four tournaments. The Tigers hold a No. 21 ranking in the final GolfWorld/NGCA Top-25 Coaches Poll of the fall season.
"We saw a lot of good things, and there were a lot of goals we met," said head coach Kim Evans. "The season as a whole, I would say we had a very good tournament, we had a great tournament and then two very poor tournaments."
Junior Marta Sanz led the team in stroke average, with a 73.33 in four tournaments. Senior Carlie Yadloczky and sophomore Marta Sanz each have a 73.83 stroke average in four tournaments, and junior Diana Fernandez has a 77.17 stroke average.
Sophomore Nicole Quinn finished the fall with a 79.56 stroke average in three tournaments, and freshman Jamie Yun finished with an 82.67 in one tournament. Freshman Alex Harrell also played in one tournament, finishing with an 84.33 stroke average. The team's overall stroke average for the fall was a 298.08.
In the start of the break for the tigers, Evans wants the team to get back in the classroom and study, but is ready to prepare for the spring season.
"We'll piece together a plan for each team member individually to be prepared for next season," said Evans. "When they get back in January, we'll practice, practice, practice so we're prepared."
Auburn returns to action at the Puerto Rico Invitational Feb. 10-12, 2013. Hosted by Purdue, the tournament takes place at the River Course at Rio Mar in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
