Florida Tech’s Settle For Fourth-Place Tie At Guy Harvey Invitational
By Florida Tech // October 14, 2015
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Florida Tech Panthers made a run towards the top of the leaderboard with a collective 15-over 303 on Tuesday, but eventually fell short, wrapping up a fourth-place tie with host Nova Southeastern at the Guy Harvey Invitational.
Following Monday’s four-over 76, junior Guro Rambjoer once again led the way for the Panthers with a one-over 73 to match her lowest round through the season’s first three tournaments. Rambjoer’s tie for fourth marks her second career top-five finish after winning the Lady Falcon Invitational in 2014.
Brittany LaPadula and Felicia Leftinger posted identical numbers for the second consecutive day, carding four-over 76’s to conclude play tied for 17th.
Freshman Paola Ortiz wound up tied for 33rd after turning in a respective six-over 78, as teammate Mae Cornforth tallied a seven-over 79 to earn a tie in 48th overall.
Fellow Sunshine State Conference foe Rollins overcame a slight one-stroke deficit entering the day to rally past Seminole State (Fla.) and claim the tournament title. As if the team championship wasn’t enough, the Tars’ Lexie Toth fired a two-under 70 in the final round to beat out Daytona State’s Ji Sun Kang and Barry’s Tilda Larsson by three strokes to secure the individual medal.
The SSC flexed its muscles amongst the field, placing four teams within the top-five of the final standings.
FIT will be off the next two weeks before it returns to competition at the Flagler College Fall Slam on Oct. 26, its final tournament of the fall season.
