DADE CITY, Fla. – Jacksonville University women's golf maintained its spot on the leaderboard on the final day of the Spring Break Shootout to finish second overall in the event.
JU shot a 308 on Tuesday at Lake Jovita Golf Club Tuesday, placing all five individuals in the top-50 at its conclusion. This is the fourth tournament this season that The Dolphins finished in the top three as a team.
"We were able to hold on to second even though we didn't play our best," said Head Coach Jennifer Borocz. "The course was scoreable today, but the whole field struggled."
Western Kentucky, one of two host schools along with Florida Gulf Coast, won the event, now in its second year, after shooting 289+301+290=880. The individual medalist was WKU's Mary Joiner. Jacksonville finished ahead of fellow ASUN Conference teams FGCU and Lipscomb.
Amanda Detmer and Maria Brunzell were JU's best finishers, wrapping up tied for sixth. Detmer (77+71+77) was the second-best scorer on Par-3s in the round, and Brunzell (72+74+79) shot a team-best -2 on Par 3s in over the two days, sinking a team-best total of eight birdies and one eagle.
Michelle Forsland parlayed consistency (74+77+75) into a T-9 finish, and shot +1 on Par 4s over the three rounds, tied for the best score with the medalist Joiner. Hannah Berman was T-12 (77+74+77), making birdies on 13 and 18 today. Maria Juliana Fueyo (78+78+79) wrapped up JU's fivesome in a tie for 42nd, and led the Dolphins in made pars for the week with 33.
As a team, Jacksonville was the second lowest scorer on Par 3s and Par 4s, finished tied for third on Par 5s and was tied for the most made pars on the week, with 158.
"We'll continue to work on our games until our next event in a couple of weeks," said Borocz.
Jacksonville returns to tournament play at the end of the month at the John Kirk Panther Intercollegiate at Eagle's Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, Ga. Mar. 26 and 27.
