W&L Women's Golf Places Fifth at the R-MC Invitational

ASHLAND, Va. – The Washington and Lee women's golf team shot a 393 on Monday to finish fifth out of seven teams at the Randolph-Macon Invitational held at the Ashland Country Club.

MU's Kelsie Carralero was the individual medalist after shooting a +4 score of 76, finishing one stroke ahead of R-MC's Olivia Bowling.

Sophomore Rachael Wright (Roanoke, Va. / North Cross) was the top General, tying for 14th with a 90.  Sophomore Sara Moir (Roanoke, Va. / Hidden Valley) finished tied for 24th with a 96, while first-year Katelyn Degnan (Saint Petersburg, Fla. / Canterbury School) carded a 103 to tie for 36th.  Sophomores Nicole Kasica (Greensboro, N.C. / Northern Guilford) and Lydia Barit (Paget, Bermuda / Middlesex School) also participated for W&L.  Kasica shot 104 to place 39th and Barit finished tied for 40th with a 105.

With the second round cancellation, the Generals will now return to action on Sunday when they play Hollins in a duel match at Ashley Plantation Country Club.
