Lady 'Dogs Finish Second at Lady Paladin Inv.

GREENVILLE, S.C. - The Mississippi State women's golf team shot a 296 on Sunday, the lowest round of the day, to finish second at the Lady Paladin Invitational. The lady Bulldogs finished the tournament with an 899, which was their second lowest team score this season.

Junior Amana Mathis finished in a tie for third for the Bulldogs after firing a 73 on Sunday. The Picayune native finished the three-round event only two strokes back of the lead. Senior Stephanie Godare who shot a 72 and finished the event in eighth paced MSU in the final round. Julia Huh shot a 78 in the final round and finished in 15th. Ashleigh Korzack shot her best round on Sunday, carding a 73 and finished in a tie with MSU freshman Marli Mikulecky for 65th.

"I was pleased with our team effort this weekend," said MSU head coach Christi Sanders. "We shot the low round today and it proves they can fight it out to the bitter end. Amanda had a solid tournament and is striking the ball well. Stephanie played very well and I look for her to do good things the rest of the season. Julia played steady from start to finish and it is nice to see Ashleigh come back and play steady like she has all season long."

Host Furman, who lead through all three rounds, won the team competition with a team score of 894. South Florida's Christina Jones shot a three-round total of 218 to take home individual honors.
