GREENVILLE, N.C. – Ashley Mylton carded a final round 78 to record her third career Top 10 finish and a 54-hole personal best to lead UNC Greensboro to a ninth place finish at the Lady Pirate Women’s Golf Invitational hosted by East Carolina at Bradford Creek Golf Course.
Mylton, a junior from Charlotte, NC who held a share of the lead entering Sunday’s final round, finished in a tie for 10th as golfers battled deteriorating weather conditions throughout the day. Her 54-hole total of 221 was a college career best.
East Tennessee State’s Laura Jansone and Birmingham Southern’s Sara Hunt finished tied for first, but a playoff for the individual honors was cancelled due to the weather.
Birmingham Southern took the team honors, recording a team total of 880. Maryland was second at 885, followed by Augusta State at 887. UNCG finished ninth with a team score of 905. The Spartans shot 308 as a team on Sunday.
