Tuesday, March 29, 2011
BOSSIER CITY, La.-After a struggling first round, the Centenary women's golf team bounced back with the third-lowest team score of the day to capture third place at the Hal Sutton Intercollegiate on Tuesday. The three-round total of 1000 was a season-best for the Ladies.

Centenary had consistently strong play in the final two rounds, including an impressive 318 total in Tuesday's round to move from fifth place to third place in 18 holes.

Sophomore Rachel Grinnell (88-77-79, 244) led Centenary with an 11th place finish after bettering her first round score by nearly 10 strokes. Grinnell finished one shot better than teammate Kyndal Rose (85-85-75, 245), who fired a team-best 75 in her final round to place 12th overall.

Also scoring well for the Ladies was sophomore Justine Kemp (88-80-81, 249) who finished 14th and just five shots behind Grinnell. Freshman Sarah Bradshaw (95-84-83, 262) continued to improve over the three rounds to finish tied for 21st, while classmate Kylee Goldthorn (95-100-106, 301) wrapped up play in 27th.

Sam Houston State (306-303-288, 897) shot an impressive 288 in the final round to capture the team title, 54 shots better than second-place Stephen F. Austin (314-326-311, 951).

Individually, SHSU's Landa Stewart (74-75-75, 224) and Jessica Borth (79-77-69, 224) tied for first, while Stewart won in a playoff.

"I am extremely proud of the way our women did today. We managed to bounce back and produce a season-low and I couldn't be more pleased to have placed in the top three," said head coach Emlyn Aubrey.

Centenary will resume play in its final non-conference tournament on Monday-Tuesday, April 11-12 in Longview, Texas at LeTourneau's Invitational.
