DATAW ISLAND, S.C. – The Bridgewater College women's golf team improved with a +67, 355, on the final day of competition to propel the Eagles into fourth place on the team leaderboard as the squad wrapped up competition at the 2014 TaylorMade/Adidas Intercollegiate at the Morgan River Course.
Bridgewater overcame an 18-stroke deficit to Ohio Wesleyan entering the final day to finish in fourth place on the team leaderboard. The Eagles finished at +153, 729, to finish four strokes ahead of Ohio Wesleyan.
Sophomore Andrea Walker was impressive on the final day of competition, improving by three strokes to card a +10, 82. Walker sank a 40-foot birdie putt on the scenic par-4, 13th hole to highlight the round. Walker finished up the two-day tournament at +23, 167, which was good enough for eighth place on the individual leaderboard.
Marin Warring also improved on the final day, picking up 10 strokes on her day-one score. Warring fired a +12, 84, to finish the tournament in 19th place. The sophomore improved on her day one score due to better control of her driver, according to head coach John Rogers.
Freshman Danielle Cook was Bridgewater's number three scorer in the clubhouse with a +17, 89. Cook's round was highlighted by a downhill eight-foot birdie on the par 5, 11th hole as the freshman tied for 23rd place overall.
Despite struggling on back-to-back holes, freshman Kamilla Voznuk was Bridgewater's number four scorer on the final day, carding a +28, 100. Voznuk struggled to a 10 on the par--4, 13th and carded an eight on the par 4, 14th, but still recovered to finish in a tie for 32nd place overall. Voznuk's 100 round marks the best single-round score of her young career.
Junior Abby Daniels also competed and fired a +39, 111, on the final day. Daniels finished in 38th place on the individual leaderboard.
"I was very pleased with this showing in our first tournament of the spring season. The ladies played more golf in this tournament than they had in the calendar year with all the snow and cold weather at home, so we did not know how prepared we would be; but most of the team played pretty close to, or better than, their scoring averages," commented Rogers. "To jump into a fourth-place finish when we were the seventh-ranked team in the field was an excellent way to start the season."
The Cumberlands took home the team title with a +77, 653. On the individual side, the Cumberlands' Liz Stephens carded a +16, 160, to take home medalist honors.
The Eagles are back in action on Friday at the Jekyll Island Intercollegate at Pine Lakes Golf Course on Georgia's Jekyll Island.
