Mebane, N.C. - The Citadel Bulldogs will travel to North Carolina this weekend to compete in the 13th annual Southern Conference Women's Golf Championship April 21-23 at Mills Creek Golf Club in Mebane, N.C. For the first time, the tournament will be hosted by Elon.
The Bulldogs last were on the links April 4 at the High Point Spring Invitational in High Point, N.C. The Cadets finished 11th out of 12 teams at that tournament, led by senior Kayla Bowsher's score of 161 (81-80). Bowsher tied for 18th in the event, her third top-20 finish of the season. Senior Tracy Hancock fired a second-round 83 to place second among the Bulldogs and 48th in the tournament with a total of 174.
The Citadel finished ninth at the 2005 Southern Conference Championship in Greenville, S.C., with a mark of 1041 (343-352-346). Bowsher and Hancock both tied for 31st in the tournament with scores of 253 while senior Kelley Thorsen placed 41st with a mark of 263. This will be the final competition as Bulldogs for Bowsher, Hancock and Thorsen.
Furman is the defending team champion of the event, having finished first with a score of 904 as the host school in 2005. The Paladins have won the last two team and individual championships and have won the team title every year the tournament has been played except for 2003 when Western Carolina won the event. Furman has also had the individual champion in 10 of the 12 years the championship has been held.
