HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- The Wake Forest women's golf team had its best result of the 2017-18 season, finishing third at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate. The Deacs shot 4-over during the final round at Long Cove Club, tied for the low round of the day, to move up to third place at 26-over.

"I am so proud of the team this week," said head coach Dianne Dailey. "They played a tough course under challenging conditions. They stayed committed and patient and showed a lot of grit. Emilia had another solid tournament to finish third. Our team beat four top-10 teams, which is a step in the right direction. Again, it was a total team effort and the support our students showed for each other was exciting."
