Lenoir-Rhyne took the team title by 15 shots over second place and defending champion, Wingate. The event was held at the 5,824-yard, par-72 Mid Carolina Golf Course. Lenoir-Rhyne led by 10 shots over Wingate entering the final round and would shoot a team score of 316 to push the margin to 15. The Bears had a three-round total of 972 to Wingate’s 987. Tusculum, buoyed by a final round 315, finished third at 1000, while Catawba was fourth at 1012. McFarland shot a two-under 34 on the final nine holes and won the tournament by three shots over Wingate’s Daniela Kessler and Catawba’s Paige Haverty, who shared the first round lead with Newberry’s Aubrey Mosley. Mosley finished fourth and Carlie Gordon, of Lenoir-Rhyne was fifth. The top five earned all-tournament honors, while McFarland was named the tournament MVP. McFarland totaled five birdies on the day, including one on the par-4 finishing hole. She bettered the old school record of 73 and set the Mid Carolina course record for women. The 315 by the Pioneers was also a school mark. Another highlight for Tusculum was a hole-in-one by Brooke Robbins on the par-3, 152-yard, 17th hole. Catawba was led by Paige Haverty, the SAC Freshman and Player of the Year. She was the only golfer in the field to record all three rounds under 80.
