CHARLESTON, S.C. - Behind a round of 1-over 73 from sophomore Marissa Dodd, the Wake Forest women's golf team carded a round of 302 on the final day of the Cougar Classic at the Yeamans Club. The Demon Deacons finished the 54-hole event in 17th place at 36-over par.
"The course was playing a little more difficult today, that's why I think the scores were a bit higher than the first two days," said Wake Forest head coach Dianne Dailey. "We're continuing to get better with each round, we just need to focus on our short game. We threw away a number of shots around the greens this week. But that's something we can work on the next couple of weeks and we'll be ready to go for the next event."
The Demon Deacons carded rounds of 297-301-302 over the three days and finished at 36-over par. Florida didn't find much trouble all week, breaking par all three days and winning the team title by six shots at 12-under par. Duke came in second at 6-under par.
Individually for the Deacs, sophomore Allison Emrey put together three consistent rounds of 74-73-74 to finish in a tie for 43rd at 5-over par. She opened her round on Tuesday with a double-bogey on her first hole and would eventually slip to 5-over for the day through eight holes. But she regrouped and birdied four of her final eight holes to post a final round 74. For the week, Emrey made a total of nine birdies.
"Allison had a really solid week," said Dailey. "It was good to see her bounce-back after a tough start today. She got a few putts to fall on the second nine, which I know helped her confidence."
Fellow sophomore Marissa Dodd carded the lowest round of the day for the Deacons with a 1-over 73. She made a total of 13 pars and a pair of birdies in the round. Dodd finished in a tie for 59th at 8-over par.
Junior Olafia Kristinsdottir shook off an opening round 80 and closed with rounds of 74-75 to finish in a tie for 83rd. Sophomore Emily Wright closed with a round of 80 and freshman Mariana Sims, who was making her Demon Deacon debut this week, shot a final round 82.
Florida's Camilla Hedberg ran away with the individual title, claiming a four-shot victory. She shot rounds of 69-66-68 to finish at 13-under par. Duke's Lindy Duncan finish runner-up at 9-under par.
The Demon Deacons will return action in a little over two weeks at the Mason Rudolph Challenge in Nashville, Tenn. That tournament is slated to begin on Friday, Sept. 21.
