WILMINGTON, N.C. - Freshman Jennifer Kupcho tied for fourth to lead the Wake Forest women’s golf team to a seventh place finish at the Landfall Tradition at the Country Club of Landfall.

After sitting in 12th place after the opening round of the Landfall Tradition the Demon Deacons climbed up to a seventh place finish. Wake Forest improved every round to finish 22-over (303-294-289). Duke won the event at 9-under with Notre Dame coming in second at 2-over.

Freshman Jennifer Kupcho fired a 4-under 68 to finish tied for fourth. Her 68 is the lowest round of any Demon Deacon this fall and gives the rookie her third top-10 finish of the season. Kupcho finished the weekend with 12 birdies, including six on Sunday.

“Our team played much better today and it was good to finish the season on a high note,” said head coach Dianne Dailey. “We know we are capable of going low and the last two rounds we had two students under par each day . Each student is capable of shooting under par. I am really proud of Jennifer Kupcho for finishing the fall with another top five performance and a 68 today. She has worked many hours this fall and it is great for her to see the rewards of her efforts. Sierra Sims' 69 was her low round of the semester and I know it will give her a lot of confidence going into the spring. Ines Laklalech, a freshman playing in her first event for the team, also broke par today. She has an excellent golf IQ for a freshman and her extra practice paid off. We plan to use the off season to continue making improvements. We have a lot to look forward to this spring.”

Freshman Ines Laklalech carded a 1-under 71 on Sunday to finish 9-over for the weekend. She tied for 42nd in her first team event of the season. Laklalech birdied two of her final six holes to post her first round under par.

Junior Sierra Sims turned in rounds of 79-65-75 to finish 7-over and tied for 39th. Her 69 on Saturday tied for her lowest round of the fall.

Sophomore Erica Herr posted a 76 in the final round to finish 12-over and freshman Antonia Eberhard turned in a 75, her lowest round of the weekend, to finish 14-over.

Senior Mariana Sims competed as an individual and carded an even-par 72 on Sunday. She tied for 42nd at 9-over.

Wake Forest is now off until the spring season begins with the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge on Feb. 7 in Palos Verdes, Calif.
