TAMPA - Amy West's 3-over 75 was the Bulls' best score in
the final round of the UCF Challenge on Tuesday afternoon.
West and teammate Anna Hancock finished in a tie for 36th
individually while the USF women's golf team took 16th place at
RedTail Golf Club in Sorrento, Fla. No. 9 North Carolina won the event by
posting the only team score that was under par.
USF moved up from 12th to 11th place
on Monday before playing a final round that will now serve as motivation for
the Bulls moving forward.
"Obviously we have a lot of work to do to close out a final
round and gain some respect," head coach Marci Kornegay said.
Christina Miller finished with a 79 and Kornegay was
impressed with Diana Rabago, who performed well in two of the three rounds
after making the lineup in qualifying the past two weeks.
"Diana showed moments of greatness but just couldn't finish
today," Kornegay said.
The Bulls take a break from competition for a month before taking
part in the Lady Gator Invitational March 15-17 in Gainesville. USF's other two
events in March are the Briar's Creek Intercollegiate and the San Diego State
University Farm Classic.
"The time between now and the Lady Gator will be used to
prepare us for a busy March," Kornegay said.
