Rumbidzai Masamvu (Harare, Zimbabwe/Dominican Convent) turned in a pair of solid performances to take home fourth place and propel Appalachian State University women’s golf to second place at the

Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate. The Mountaineers carded a 388-392=780 (+60) and the junior finished with a 76-74=150 (+6). Brittany Zachrich (Hickory, N.C./Montreat) rode a solid opening round to a 74-80=154 (+10) and a tie for ninth place. Lauren Smith (Salisbury, N.C./UNCG) shaved seven strokes off her first round to place 16th with an 82-75=157 (+13).
Elena Thomas (Waxahachie, Texas/Wacahachie) followed with a 76-83=159 (+15) to tie in 22nd place. Mimi Burke (Mooresville, N.C./Cannon School) placed just behind with an 80-80=160 (+16) to tie for 25th. Samantha Bonham (Greensboro, N.C./UNC Pembroke) rounded out the team scoring with a 91-89=180 (+36) to place 43rd and Samantha Patton (Morganton, N.C./Mars Hill) competed individually in 37th place with an 80-89=169 (+25).
Western Carolina took home the team title at 764 (+44), led by medalist Sofie Kvarnstrom’s 73-73=146 (+2). Charleston Southern’s Amanda D’Ostroph and Wofford’s Elizabeth Thompson tied for second place at 149 (+5). The Terriers placed third, just one stroke behind the Mountaineers.
CSU took fourth at 788, Presbyterian College placed fifth with a 793, Gardner-Webb wrapped up sixth place with a 797 and South Carolina State rounded out the field with an 808. Appalachian now turns its attention to the Southern Conference Tournament on April 15-17 at Moss Creek Country Club in Hilton Head, S.C.
NOTES: Junior Yue Xu (Beijing, China/HuiJia Private School) did not participate at the tournament because of obligations with an internship ... Xu is the chief interpreter for the Chinese Travel Channel covering The Masters in Augusta, Ga. this week.
