GREENSBORO, N.C. – Despite a team score of 292 on Tuesday by UNC Greensboro, East Carolina’s 15-shot lead to open the day was too much to overcome as the Lady Pirates won the UNCG-Starmount Forest Fall Classic by eight shots over the host Spartans.
The Pirates, who set a school record with a round of 284 on Monday, carded a team total of 299 to hold on for the win. East Carolina’s Emelie Lind held off a late charge to win the individual title with a one-under 141, carding a 71 on Tuesday. She fended off High Point’s Ann Marie Dalton, who shot a 69 to finish one shot back, and Miami’s Jessica Steward, who recorded the low round of the tournament with a 68 to finish two shots back along with Campbell’s Sandra Angulo.
UNCG’s top finishers were freshman Erica Creed and sophomore Annelie Weimenhog, who both finished a part of a five-way tie for sixth place. Both players recorded rounds of one-under 70 on Tuesday after forging rounds of 76 on Monday.
A total of 69 players consisting of 11 teams and 14 individuals competed in the 36-hole event.
UNCG returns to action on Friday when it begins play at Lady Paladin Invite, hosted by Furman University in Greenville, SC.
