Women's golf wins Stones River Shootout
Morgan Hale finished in first at first-ever home eventApril 6, 2010 · Athletic Communications
"It was nice for everybody to be able to come out and watch us," said Hale. "The conditions were really tough out there, but I think I hit the ball pretty well today."
The Blue Raiders would finish the day with a 34-over 318. Austin Peay and Belmont carded a 53-over 337 and a 54-over 338, respectively.
"It wasn't what I expected," said Coach Chris Adams. "The golf course played a little harder than we anticipated with winds gusting up to 30 miles-per-hour, and the greens were very firm and very fast. Morgan had a great round, but we struggled a little bit."
After playing three events in the past nine days, Middle Tennessee will now prepare for the Sun Belt Conference Championships, which will be held April 19-21 in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
"We have a lot of work to do for the conference tournament," said Adams. "But we'll take the win."
1. Middle Tennessee, 318 (+34)
2. Austin Peay, 337 (+53)
3. Belmont, 338 (+54)
