08_WGolf_BabosKelsey1

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, FL -- Catawba junior Kelsey Babos (Uniontown, OH/Lake HS) shot a final round 75 on Tuesday and held on to a fifth place finish at the NCAA II Southeast Region Women’s Golf Tournament at the 6,165-yard, par-72 Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort.  Her finish qualifies her for the NCAA II National Championships on May 13-16 at Findlay, OH.  Babos is the first Catawba women’s golfer to qualify for the Nationals.

Babos finished the tournament with a score of 226, one shot ahead of Newberry’s Maria Luz Besio and Florida Tech’s Daniela Iacobelli, who had a playoff for the final spot.  Iacobelli advanced on the fourth playoff hole.  Pfeiffer’s Charlene Reid, who finished on a total of 224, also qualified. 

After a shaky opening on Sunday, +7 after seven holes, Babos played just three-over-par over her final 47 holes.  The junior had four bogeys on her final nine holes on Tuesday, but collected a key birdie on the par-5 14th that paved the way for her top five finish.
