UNCGSpartans.com 03-27-2018

KENNNESAW, Ga. – UNCG women’s golf finished up the final day of the Henssler Intercollegiate Tuesday afternoon. The Spartans suffered another injury and did not record a team score in the event. Three Spartans finished the competition and all shot six-over par on the day. Kent State won the team event, shooting a combined 873, seven strokes ahead of second place finisher Ole Miss. Kent State's Pimnipa Panthong was the individual champion, shooting a six-under par. 

“This was a great event and we hope to go back in the future.” It was unfortunate to have no card as a team at this tournament. However, the health of my student-athletes is more important to me. We have a little time to rest and get healthy before we finish off the year at home and at the SoCon Championship.”

Tara Bettle finished the competition in 41st. She added 11 pars and two birdies in the final round. Louisa Tichy recovered from a six-over par start on the front nine to end the day by earning birdies on three of the last four holes. Tichy shot seven pars and three birdies in the final round and finished tied for 42nd. Natalia Asensio finished the competition shooting her best round. The junior earned nine pars and two front nine birdies. She finished tied for 45th. 

Women’s golf is back in action at home at Bryan Park as part of the Bryan National Tournament, April 6-8.
