Houston, Texas – The Transylvania women's golf team completed the second and final round of the D-III National Preview on Tuesday afternoon with a 12th-place finish out of 18 competing teams at the Bay Oaks Country Club.

The Pioneers improved upon their 336 team score in Monday's first round by four strokes on Tuesday, carding a 332 to finish with a two-day score of 668.

For the second straight day, Transylvania was led by senior Meredith Moir, who shot an eight-over-par 80 on Tuesday to finish with a two-round score of 157 for 13th place out of 101 golfers on the individual leaderboard. Moir capped off her week in Houston by sinking birdies on two of her final three holes.

Junior Rebecca Fine came in second among the Pioneers, shooting a two-round 167 on Tuesday to improve upon her first-round score by three strokes. Junior Rachel Fine shot a 177 for both rounds.

Junior Lexie Lamar improved upon her Monday score by 14 strokes to finish with a 178 while senior Jenna Soderling also finished with a 178 over two rounds.  

Pitting top teams from across the country including nine of whom appeared in last spring's 2018 Division III Women's Golf National Championships, the D-III National Preview served as the first look for aspiring championship teams at the site of next spring's NCAA national championships.

The Pioneers will next compete in Richmond, Indiana at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Preview tournament on Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30.
