Terre Haute, Ind. – Sophomore Meredith Moir continued to lead the way for the Transylvania women's golf team as the Pioneers posted a top-five finish at Sunday's Rose-Hulman Invitational tournament at Hulman Links Golf Course.
Moir followed up her Saturday first round score of 82 with a two-stroke improvement in Sunday's second and final round to finish with a 162. That score for Moir slotted her for a fifth-place finish among the 69-player field.
Moir's contributions paced along the Pioneers to a fifth-place finish, made possible by fellow sophomore Jenna Soderling's two-round score of 169, placing her in a tie for 12th place in the field.
"It was a tough two days with some difficult conditions, but I thought we showed some resiliency," said head coach Tyrus York of the team's performance. "We definitely see what we need to do to get ready for conference championships when that comes in three weeks."
Before the Pioneers further ponder the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships which will also occur at the Hulman Links G.C., they'll host a slew of teams next weekend at home at the Keene Run Golf Course in the Lexington area.
Freshman Lexie Lamar finished third on the Pioneers' team leaderboard, as she improved by two strokes on Sunday from Saturday to complete a two-round 176. Junior Keeley Goff came in fourth for the Pioneers with a two-day 191. Junior Lindsay Bloom and Senior Jill Graeter, competing on the individual circuit rounded out the lineup for the Pioneers.
Transylvania afforded itself the chance to test the Hulman-Links Golf Course against a collection of teams participating in the tournament for the weekend.
Next weekend provides the home showcase for the Pioneers in their 2016 fall season, as they prepare to host their premier home event of 2016 at Keene Run Golf Course.
