Lady Chants go wire to wire at Palmetto Intercollegiate

ccuwgolf-teamtitleFor the second time in as many outings, the Coastal Carolina women’s golf team returns to Conway with a tournament championship — this time it is the Palmetto Intercollegiate hosted by College of Charleston, contested at the par-72, 5,972-yard Kiawah Island Resort – Turtle Point course. Moreover, Coastal’s Lena Schaeffner claimed the individual medalist honors, also a second straight for a Chanticleer.

Coastal won the event by 12 strokes over No. 25 GRU Augusta. The Chanticleers finished the 54-hole event with 2-over 866 score after posting a final round 294. The 866 tally is the second-best in Chanticleer women’s golf history. GRU Augusta totaled a 14-over 878 followed by No. 30 Furman (879). South Florida (891) and No. 39 Kansas (897) rounded out the top five in the 20-team field.

Schaeffner, a junior, claimed her first collegiate event title with her career-best three-round score of 4-under 212. Her score ties former Chants Aruka Felgueroso and Jessica Alexander for the second-best in program history. Schaeffner captured the event title by a single stroke over Kansas’ Yupaporn Kawinpakorn as she posted a 1-under 71 during the final round of play. Schaeffner’s final round was up and down as she countered three bogeys and a double-bogey with six birdies. She also led the tournament field with 15 birdies and in par-4 scoring, playing the holes a combined 1-under.

The tournament title was the 20th in Chanticleer history and 11th under the direction of head coach Katie Quinney since she began leading the program during the spring of 2009. Schaeffner’s individual title marked the 21st in program history and second this season (Marissa Hinchman at the JU Classic).

Finishing second in the Chanticleer contingent was senior Emee Herbert, turning in an even-par 216 score to tie for fourth in the 104-competitor field. Herbert turned in an even-par final round for her 54-hole score of 216. The even-par tournament score was a career-best for Herbert. She closed the day with three birdies and totaled 12 for the tournament.

Freshman Malene Krolboll Hansen (70-71-77) finished seventh overall with a 2-over 218 score. Krolboll shot a 5-over 77 on her final round to finish with her 218. She carded 33 pars during the tournament and ranked second in par-4 scoring, playing the holes a combined 1-over.

Marissa Hinchman (73-76-76) finished for 30th, turning in a three-day score of 9-over 225. She posted a 4-over 76 during the final round, which included two birdies and 12 pars. Overall, she registered five birdies and 35 pars over the 54 holes of play.

Bailey Cocca (80-73-75=228) tied for 33rd overall. She sank two birdies putts during her final round. Cocca concluded the event with seven birdies and 43 pars.

The event concluded the Chants’ four-event fall competition schedule. Coastal returns to the links at the Southwood Golf Course in Tallahassee, Fla., for the Florida State Match-Up on Feb. 13-15.
