Women's Golf Wraps Record Year in Fourth At ASUN Champ

BRASELTON, Ga. – Jacksonville University women's golf wrapped the rain shortened ASUN Championship tied for fourth.

The Dolphins shot a 306 on Tuesday, besting its first-round total by eight strokes and finished with a 620, tied for fourth with Florida Gulf Coast.

"It was tough battling the elements, both on the course and waiting out the rain," said Head Coach Jennifer Borocz. "We unfortunately did not shoot as low as we would have liked to out there this week."

After play was delayed for a day and the second round eventually cancelled due to heavy rains at Chateau Elan Legends Course, the final round began with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Amanda Detmer wrapped as Jacksonville's best individual finisher, with a 152 for the tournament and tied for seventh. She was one of three Dolphins to shoot a 77 on the day, along with Michelle Forsland (79+77) and Maria Brunzell (80+77), who were tied for 10th and tied for 14th on the leaderboard, respectively.

In her first ASUN Championship as a member of the Dolphins, Hannah Berman shot JU's best round of the day, bouncing back to fire a 2-over 75 and finished with a 158. Fellow first-timer, freshman Paula Trejo Lerdo finished tied for 22nd (80+81).

Jacksonville finished as the second-best scorer in the championship on Par-4s, averaging a 4.31 over the two rounds. Berman made the second most birdies in the event, going low eight times and Detmer and Forsland finished second and third in total pars made, with 27 and 24, respectively. 

Jacksonville wrapped the season with its most successful year to date, winning two tournaments and finishing runner up in two more, with a third-place finish on top of that. Detmer earned First Team All-ASUN honors for the second time in her career and was named to the All-Academic Team. Forsland was also recognized by the ASUN, making Second Team All-Conference. The lone senior on the team, Maria Juliana Fueyo, graduates this weekend, but could not be with the team due to her commitments with the CFA Financial Challenge Global Finals in Malaysia.
