Women's golf in fifth at A-Sun Championship
April 10, 2007
BUIES CREEK, N.C. - Camilla Loeveid carded a five-over par 77 to lead the JU women's golf team to a round of 314 as the JU women's golf team stayed in fifth place after 36 holes at the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship.
Campbell leads the team event at 597 after a second round total of 301. The Camels Alejandra Shaw leads the individual competition after posting the best round of the event, a three-under par 69 to finish the two rounds at two-under par.
JU's two round total of 627 trails ETSU by six shots for fourth place and leads Belmont by four for sixth place.
"We got off to a rocky start, but we were able to rally and finish strong on the back nine," said JU head coach Jim Taketa. "We've got one round left tomorrow and we're going to try to shoot as well as we can to see how high we can move up the board."
Loeveid's 77 moved her into a tie for 17th individually at 14-over par. After posting four bogeys on the front nine, Loveid finished with just two bogeys and a birdie on the 16th to finish at five-over par.
Heather Fudge and Alexandra Andersen both carded rounds of 78 to move up the leaderboard as well. Fudge jumped into the top 20, tying Loevied at 14-over par, with a three-over par front nine and an equal score on the back side.
Andersen moved up into a tie for 27th at 18-over par. After opening with a four-over par front side, she closed with just two bogeys on the back nine to post her round of six-over par.
Jessica Green and Therese Karlsson both shot rounds of 81 to round out the scoring for JU. Karlsson, who was tied for third entering the second round, dropped to 11th place at 11-over par. Green is tied for 21st at 15-over par.
The Dolphins will wrap up the season with the final round on Wednesday morning.
DOLPHINS WARMING UP: After a cold day on Monday, Tuesday saw the temperatures rise and with that, the Dolphins began to shed some layers. All five Dolphins started the day with at least four layers and had shed it down to two by the end of the day.
The bravest member of the Dolphin contingent has to be Heather Fudge's father - who has braved the first two rounds in shorts. Having made the trip south from Prince Edward Island (which is currently under eight inches of snow right now), the cool conditions in North Carolina are nothing compared to what he left behind in Canada.
EARLY START: After frost delays the past two days, the final round will get off to an early start - with JU going off at 8:40 a.m. on the 10th hole. The final round will feature the teams going out in twosomes to beat the rain tomorrow.
FUDGIZZLE: The Dolphins won't be making a trip back to Baskin-Robbins after failing to get four scores in the 70s on Tuesday. Following the banquet on Monday night, the Dolphins stopped and had a late night treat with the promise of another trip should everyone break 80 the next day.
LOEVEID'S FINAL ROUND: Senior Camilla Loeveid will tee it up for the final time as a Dolphin on Wednesday morning. The senior transferred to JU from Murray State and has been a vital part of the lineup during her time as a Dolphin. She enters the final round looking to claim another top 20 finish as she is tied for 17th.
