About the Bison
>> Bucknell wraps up Spring Break week by making its second tournament appearance of the spring season, both coming in the state of South Carolina. Two weeks ago, the Bison finished in 39th place in a massive field of 43 at the Edwin Watts Kiawah Island Classic.
>>The Bison had a different low scorer in each of the three rounds at Kiawah. Lindsay Dodovich led the way with a 75 in the opening round, followed by Katie Childers with a 77 in round two and Emily Larson with a 78 in the final round. Dodovich's 236 over 54 holes led the squad.
>> Dodovich led the Bison with a 78.4 stroke average over 12 rounds during the fall season. She won the Bucknell Invitational, highlighted by a 2-over 72 in the first round, and she closed out the fall with a T-15th at the Lehigh Invitational. Dodovich became Bucknell's first individual tournament winner since Minjoo Lee claimed the Wendy's Invitational at Coosaw Creek in Charleston, South Carolina in October of 2010.
>> Larson posted an 80.3 fall average, followed by Dailey (81.0), Childers (81.9) and Langs (82.6).
