Rumbidzai Masamvu finished 20th with a 76-78-74=228 (+12) and freshman Elena Thomas finished strong with a 83-87-77=247 (+31) to place 45th. Competing individually, Brittany Zachrich placed 36th with an 85-78-77=240 (+26).
Nearby Stetson took home the team title with an 880 (+18) and the Hatters’ Alex Buelow earned the individual medal with a 210 (-6) over 54 holes. ASU finished the event just two strokes behind host Morehead State’s 884 (+20).
Appalachian moves onto the Low Country Intercollegiate to defend its 2011 team championship. The event takes place on March 25-26 at Hilton Head, S.C.’s Moss Creek Plantation, the site of next month’s Southern Conference Tournament.
NOTES: Appalachian’s previous team low round was 299, set in Sept. 2010 at the Great Smokies Invitational ... Smith and Xu’s opening round 69 tied the individual 18-hole record, originally set by Xu in the April 2010 SoCon Tournament.
