Oct. 16, 2012
NASHPORT, Ohio -- The Bucknell women's golf team concluded play Tuesday at the Mid-America Conference Preview tournament at the Longaberger GC, and the Bison placed ninth out of 15 teams after posting rounds of 320 and 325. Freshman Jen Lee, who posted a career-best 2-over-par 74 on Monday, shot 83 in the second round and was Bucknell's top individual finisher in a tie for 13th place.
MAC teams comprised the majority of the field, and Ball State took home the team title with a three-shot win over Bowling Green. Ball State shot 621 over 36 holes, followed by BGSU at 624, Eastern Michigan at 625 and Toledo at 627.
Bucknell began the final round in fourth place, six shot behind first-round leader Akron, but the top four finishers all posted scores under 310 on Tuesday.
Bridget Wilcox, who had been Bucknell's low player in every other tournament this fall, shot 77-82 for a 36-hole total of 159. She finished T-20th, two strokes behind Lee. Lauren Bernard shot 83-81, Kasha Scott turned in 87-79, and Emily Timmons shot 86-85.
Meghan Perry of Ball State won the individual title with a total of 150 (77-73). Meredith Fairbairn of Eastern Michigan was one shot back at 151 (78-73).
The Bison have one fall event remaining. They will be at the Palmetto Invitational at Kiawah Island, S.C., on Oct. 28-29.
