With a final round score of 144, senior Yue Xu propelled Appalachian State University women's golf to the Winthrop University Intercollegiate championship Sunday afternoon at Rock Hill Country Club.

With the victory, the Mountaineers claim their first invitational championship since the Low Country Intercollegiate in March.
The Apps claimed the top three scores of the tournament as Xu earned medalist honors with matching 72s (E) for a tournament score of 144. Senior Rumbidzai Masamvu followed, shooting 72-75=147(+3), giving her second place for the tournament. Senior Lauren Smith finished third, carding a 74-74=148 (+4). Senior Mimi Burke tallied a 74-79=153, earning her the 12th position for the tournament, as sophomore Elena Thomas finished in a tie for 31st, shooting 80-82=162(+13) for the tournament.
The Mountaineers finished the tournament with a 592, defeating second place Gardner-Webb, who fired a 610.
Appalachian returns to the links on Monday, Oct. 15 when it travels to Charleston, S.C. and Rivertowne Country Club for the Wendy's Classic. The Classic is set for a two-day tournament.
