Sophomore Lindsay Parks earned a share of 17th place by slicing nine strokes off her first-round score (91-82=173). “We played much better today,” Anderson head coach Danny Neal
said. “We improved by several shots and moved up a spot [to third].” Sophomore Anna Jenks turned in a 12-over 84 in her final round to finish the event in a tie for 22nd place overall, while senior Caroline Seymour wrapped the tournament at 176 (+32) tied for 24th. Sophie Dembroski rounded out the scoring for Anderson, posting an 87 on Tuesday to finish the event at a 33-over 177, giving her a share 26th place at the event.
