In the end, the Panthers shot a record breaking team score, but it was not enough to advance out of third place at the Old South Golf Links.

“The girls fought hard today,” said assistant coach Elrick van Eck. “They made up ground on the leaders, but couldn’t quite pull it off.”

The Panthers scored a 298 in round two. The score is a new single round record for the Panthers, and bested the previous record score of 299. The 298 was also an eight shot improvement for the Panthers from round one.

Sophomore Felicia Leftinger once again led the Panthers with a one-over-par 73. The score gave Leftinger a 145 for the tournament, which was good for a second place tie in the individual standings.  Freshman Guro Rambjor shot a second round 75, and finished in a tie for sixth.
