ANDERSON, S.C. – Two weeks after claiming its second win of the fall season, the Anderson University women's golf team is slated to compete at the Illinois-Springfield Island Getaway, Monday and Tuesday at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Resort in Puerto Rico.
The two-day, 36-hole event was hosted two years ago on the par-71, 6,083 yard Ocean Course.
As a freshman, Kate Hill claimed a share of third place to lead the Trojans to a fifth-place finish in their last appearance in the tourney (2016), while Tarleton State won the team title.
Program records have been in jeopardy throughout the Trojans' entire fall slate, with the Black and Gold eclipsing school records in every tournament. The Trojans posted a school record on two occasions last year, with a 295 as the 18-hole record. The Trojans eclipsed that mark with a second-round 293 at the AU Invitational, then bettered their own school record with a final-round 291 a month later at the Patsy Rendleman Invitational.
Two weeks ago, the Trojans posted a school-record 287 in the mountains of North Georgia, while marking a LeeAnn Noble Memorial tournament-record for 18 holes, as well as a tourney record 584 for the 36-hole event.
Sophomore Anna Freeman paced the Trojans with a runner-up finish, while Elam claimed a share of eighth place. Freshman Kerington Lamb carded a career-best score for the second consecutive round and finished alongside Elam in a tie for eighth place. Freshman Victoria Hall equaled her season-best two-round effort and claimed a share of 13th place, while Poole finished in a tie for 29th. Hill shared the 29th spot.
Through six rounds, Freeman leads the team with a 73.17 stroke average, while Hill is close behind with a 74.50 stroke average. Elam holds a 74.83 stroke average and Hall has recorded a 75.83 average
