Sept. 8, 2003
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - JU sophomore Ashley Grier (Hagerstown, Md.) and senior Karin Haggard (Gothenburg, Sweden) each shot a 13-over-par 157 to tie for 44th out of 186 golfers to lead the Dolphins to a 14th-place finish out of 36 teams at the Unlimited Potential/Bay Tree Classic in Myrtle Beach, S.C. JU shot a 634 (323-311) on the par-72, 5,928-yard course at the Bay Tree Golf Plantation to finish in a tie with East Tennessee State. The event was shortened to two rounds because of inclement weather.

Host College of Charleston (616) finished third, followed by Middle Tennessee (618) and Arkansas-Little Rock (618) to round out the top five. Radford's Laura Tereby shot a 4-over-par 140 (73-67) to edge James Madison's Carol Green (71-76=147) for individual medallist honors. Tereby's 67 on Sunday was the lowest round fired in the six-year history of the event.
Other top finishers for the Dolphins were senior Ulrika Norden (Stockholm, Sweden), who shot a 162 (82-80), and Winney Dorminey (Jacksonville/Wolfson), who fired a 163 (82-81).
After Saturday's round was rained out, just the top 24 teams played the Green Course on Sunday to complete the tournament. Teams 25-36 played in the Silver Course championship.
