Women's Golf Finishes Rain-Shortened Lady Pirate Intercollegiate|
Oct. 9, 2012
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The two-day, 54-hole Lady Pirate Intercollegiate was shortened to 18 holes after inclement weather on Monday and Tuesday forced officials to cancel the two of three scheduled rounds.
The Intercollegiate was being played at the par-72, 6,004-yard Greenville Country Club. Tournament and course officials were forced to reduce play to an 18-hole tournament after torrential rain Monday afternoon that caused the cancellation of the final 36-holes.
Marshall finished 17th after a first round score of 322. Korakot Simsiriwong was the Thundering Herd's top performer. The sophomore tied 33rd five-over-par 77. Rachel Thompson, who shot a seven-over-par 79, was the Herd's next best performer and finished tied for 48.
Maryland took home the team title for the third straight year at the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate. The Teriapins shot a one-round score 295 for seven-over-par. They were awarded the tiebreaker over UNC Wilmington by having a better score from their fifth seed.
Maryland becomes the second school with three consecutive titles since the host East Carolina took home three from 2002-04.
Juliet Vongphoumy of Maryland was the individual title winner after a four-under-par 68.
The Herd has one remaining fall tournament on its schedule, the FedEx Memphis Women's Intercollegiate. Marshall will head off for Germantown, Tenn. and the Ridgeway Country Club Oct. 22-23.
