McGill takes co-medalist honors; Team takes thirdMarch 16, 2004 · MT Media Relations
As a team, Middle Tennessee came in third with a 36-hole score of 637 to place just six shots behind tournament winner Jacksonville State and five shots back of second place Oral Roberts.
McGill, who had her best career finish and became just the second medallist winner in school history, struggled on the backside on Tuesday but found away to grind it out down the stretch. The Bowling Green, Kent., native birdied her final hole to earn the tie.
"I am really proud of the way Maggie played during the tournament," head coach Rachael Moore said. "The course is tough and when you add the wind we had today it becomes really tough to score on. Maggie was great and I was also proud of the way Kemmerlee Pennington played."
Pennington, playing as an individual, had the best finish of her career by tying for fourth. The junior from Crossville, Tenn., had a 154 including a career-best round of 76 on Tuesday.
The Lady Raiders will play next Monday and Tuesday at the Samford Women's Intercollegiate.
