Women’s golf tied for seventh entering the final round

Melissa Magdor carded a four-over par 76 to lead the JU women’s golf team as they enter the final round tied for seventh at the 2011 Atlantic Sun Conference Championship.

Magdor was solid all day, making just five bogeys with one birdie during her round, moving up to a tie for 16th at nine-over par for the tournament. She enters the final round trailing by Stetson’s Alex Buelow by eight shots in the individual competition.

Campbell surged into the team lead, entering the final day with a two-shot lead over Kennesaw State and a three-shot lead over Stetson and East Tennessee State.

“We let this round slip away from us again over the last few holes,” said JU head coach Mike Blackburn. “We’re capable of posting a better score and I think this group will go out on a high note tomorrow.”

Morgan Jackson posted a six-over par, 78, that moved her into a tie for 20th at 10-over par. She made the turn at one-over par, thanks in part to a birdie at the par-4 second. But her round slipped away with bogeys on the final three holes to drop her in the standings.

Kristen Boettcher carded an eight-over par, 80, in the second round, posting two birdies on the scorecard to move into a tie for 31st at 16-over par.

Jessica Williams rebounded from a rough start to card a 10-over par 82 to move into 41st at 22-over par. Meghan Hughes fell into a tie for 49th at 41-over par after her second round.

As a team, JU played the final four holes today nine-over par. The Dolphins are now 17-over par for the tournament on the final four holes through two rounds.

JU will tee off in its final round of the 2011 season on Wednesday morning with Belmont.
