After shooting a more-than-respectable 312 first-day score, APSU came up with an even more impressive 307, Thursday as the Lady Govs again had a trio of sub-80 scorers on the 5,996-yard layout.

Cathey matched her low fall score with a 71, leaving her at 148 over the two days. In addition, junior Morgan Kauffman fired a 77, with Amber Bosworth shooting a 79, Thursday. Both freshman Taylor Goodley and sophomore Sarah Beth Struble shot 80s.

In addition, Kelsey Schutt bounced back from an 87 to fire an 80 while fellow junior Morgan Gardner had an 85.

APSU Amber Bosworth“This was a good start to the spring season,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “We handled the win pretty well. We did commit a few mental mistakes, but it is early…it is something you can expect.

“Jessica had a great day—one under in that wind was a great round. Amber is playing well right now and it was great to see AnnaMichelle play well these two days.

Belmont’s Emma Kate Liu had the day’s second lowest round with a 75.
