The 894 was Coastal’s third-best 54-hole score of the 2013-14 season, is the 17th best 54-hole score in CCU history and is the program’s second-best 54-hole score at the conference championships. Campbell won the team title with a conference record even-par 864, while Fighting Camel Louise Lattorre won individual medalist with a 3-under 213.

Joining Latorre on the Big South All-Tournament Team by way of their top-five finishes were Campbell’s Tahnia Ravnjak and Kaylin Yost, along with Chanticleers Frida Castillo, Bailey Cocca and Lena Schaeffner.

Coastal finished 27 strokes ahead of third-place High Point (301-304-316=921). Gardner-Webb (306-313-315=934) and Winthrop (310-312-314) rounded out the top-five in the nine-team field.

Castillo, an All-Big South selection by the league’s coaches, was Coastal’s top finisher at the event, carding a 3-over 219 (73-71-75) to place fourth in the 45-competitor field. The junior carded a 3-over 75 on the final day of the tournament. Her round featured two birdies and 12 pars. She made both of her birdies on the front nine to battle a bogey and double-bogey. She moved to 3-over after bogeys on 10 and 11 before closing the round with seven straight pars. She ended the tournament carding seven birdies.

Cocca posted her best finish as a Chanticleer, tying for fifth overall. The sophomore turned in a career-best 8-over 224 (75-75-74) 54-hole score. Her final round 74 was her second lowest of the season. Cocca carded three birdies against one bogey on the front nine to make the turn at 2-under. She struggled over the ensuing seven holes, turning in five bogeys and two pars to move to 3-over. She steadied and closed the round with a par and a birdie on the par-5, 465-yard 18th hole. She counted eight birdies throughout the three-round event.

Schaeffner, an All-Big South selection, also tied for fifth on the individual leaderboard with an 8-over 224 score. Schaeffner (71-77-76) posted eight birdies 34 pars during her three rounds. Her final round 76 was highlighted by birdies on the par-4 third hole and one each on the par-5 13th and 18th holes. She was hindered on the day by double-bogeys on holes five and 11.

Emee Herbert finished tied for 18th overall with her three day total of 17-over par 233. Castillo shot a 78 on Sunday, an 80 on Monday and closed the tournament with a 3-over 75 for her 233 on Tuesday. She finished the day with one birdie to go along with 14 pars.

All-conference selection Marissa Hinchman ended the tournament 35th overall with a 240 54-hole score. Hinchman shot rounds of 86, 74 and 80 to tally her 24-over 240. She turned in two birdies during each round to close the championship with six birdies and 21 pars.
