Bisons Finish Seventh At Citrus Challenge

ORLANDO - The Lipscomb women's golf team finished seventh (319-308-308=935) at the Citrus Challenge after shooting a final-round 308.

Murray State won the tournament title at 873, 21 shots better than Keiser University.

Junior Rachael McMahan (81-74-76=231) had the best finish on the leaderboard for the Bisons tied for 17th. This was McMahan's first top-20 finish of the spring. 

Freshman Sarah Hinton (80-77-75=232) had a solid tournament and finished tied for 23rd. Her final-round 75 was the best round of the day for the Purple and Gold. 

"The first day was rough," head coach Jesse Lawley said. "We definitely did not play to our potential. The girls responded by putting two solid rounds together for the last two two days and moving up two spots on the leaderboard.

"I couldn't be more proud of of them realizing what needed to improve and then going back out the next two days and embracing the grind and improving."

The Bisons are back in action at the UNC Asheville Spring Invitational March 25-26.
