Appalachian State University women’s golf fired a 307-302=609 (+33) to place 11th at the Great Smokies Intercollegiate on Monday at Waynesville Inn Golf Club. The tournament was originally

slated for two days, but was completed in one day due to impending weather.
Senior Lauren Smith paced the Mountaineers with a fourth-place finish. She carded a 71-71=142 (-2), including an eagle and 25 pars at the 36-hole event. Classmate Yue Xu claimed 31st place at 77-73=150 (+6), while a third senior, Rumbidzai Masamvu, carded a 76-78=152 (+8) to tie for 50th.
Mimi Burke placed 73rd with an 83-80=163 (+19) and newcomer KK Brake made her Appalachian debut with an 88-81=169 (+25) to finish 78th at the tournament. Paced by a first-place finish by Linnea Scholin, Morehead State claimed the team title at 575 (-1), seven strokes ahead of host Western Carolina. WCU’s Taylor Allison also tied for the individual medal with a two-round 140 (-3).
Competing from the Southern Conference, Samford placed third at 584 (+8), Elon took home fourth place at 586 (+10) and The Citadel tied for 13th place at 627 (+51). The Mountaineers return to competition on Oct. 6-7 for the Winthrop Intercollegiate in Rock Hill, S.C.
