The College of Wooster Fighting Scots women’s golf team took home a sixth-place finish at the Allegheny College Women’s Invitational on last Sunday and Monday. The Scots finished sixth out of 12 teams, and finished ahead of conference rival Allegheny College. Fellow NCAC competitors Wittenberg University and Denison University finished second and third, respectively. As a team, the Scots shot 112-over-par, 60 shots behind champions Gannon University.

The Scots’ top performer was Hannah Buzolits ’17, who shot +20 over the two-day event on the par-73 course. Her individual score was good enough to finish 13th overall out of 76 competitors.

“This past weekend I just felt really relaxed,” Buzolits said. “It was the best I’ve putted in a while.”

The Scots’ Mallorey Stack ’17 shot a team-low 80 on Sunday, but followed up on Monday with a score of 90. She finished in a tie for 21st. Emily Howerton ’17 carded a total score of 178 to finish in a tie for 28th. First-years Hannah Appleman and Kaci Carpenter finished in 42nd and tied for 46th, respectively, to round out the Scots’ lineup.

“As a team, I think we were just trying to get a feel for the course,” Buzolits said. “We have the first rounds of our conference tournament there in the spring and wanted to get some experience there.”

The Scots will travel to Grey Hawk Golf Club in La Grange, Oh. this weekend to compete in the Yellow Jacket Invitational, hosted by Baldwin Wallace University.
