Women's golf places 10th at Panther Intercollegiate
Love ties for 16thMarch 22, 2011 · Athletic Communications
"I think we struggled a bit on the greens," head coach Chris Adams said. "It's a quick turnaround for us, and we certainly have some work to do before next week. We have to get tougher on the course. We have a long way to go, but we're going to work to get out of it."
Love and Akin ended the event tied for 16th (out of 78) and 35th, respectively, at 10-over and 16-over.
"Olivia played well," Adams said. "She was pretty steady today and yesterday, but she'll tell you she left some strokes out there on the course. She made some shots and definitely had some good moments."
Morgan Hale entered the day with the best score among the Blue Raiders, but posted a nine-above-par round of 81 to end tied for 28th.
Stephanie Smith, competing as an individual had a strong showing on Monday with a pair of three-over rounds, but posted an 84 on Tuesday to tie for 40th at 18-above-par.
Middle Tennessee will look to rebound next week with their third event in as many weeks at the UALR Women's Golf Classic in Hot Springs, Ark.
