Women’s golf ends season with seventh place finish at the A-Sun Championship
Jessica Williams and Kristen Boettcher each carded a six-over par 78 in her final collegiate round to lead the JU women’s golf as the Dolphins finished their season with a seventh place showing at the 2011 Atlantic Sun Conference Championship.
The senior duos rounds helped JU post a 27-over par, 315, in the final round to finish at 81-over par. Stetson won the tournament title for the third straight year, rallying for a 12-stroke victory over Campbell.
Stetson’s Alex Buelow won the individual title at even-par for the tournament, posting a one-under par 71 in the final round to win by five shots.
“I was happy to see Jessica finish her career with a good round,” said JU head coach Mike Blackburn. “This group has accomplished a lot in their career and we appreciate everything they have done for our program.”
Williams finished the event at 28-over par, 244, and in 38th place, improving her score each round. Boettcher’s round moved her to 22-over par, 238, and 30th place in the individual competition.
