Murray, KY – Austin Peay State University Women’s Golf sophomore Taylor Goodley elevated herself into a top-10 position by the close of the Jan Weaver Invitational, hosted by Murray State.
With a final-round 315 leading to a three-round 946 (314-317-315), the Govs dropped two spots to seventh, with South Alabama and Belmont moving up thanks to final-round 302’s, with six of the 10 competing schools shooting below 310 over the final 18 holes.
Host Murray State took a wire-to-wire team victory at 893 (299-297-297).
Goodley picked up her first top-10 since the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate, tying for 10th with a 231 (77-78-76); her 4.20 stroke average on par-4s led the Govs and was fourth-best for the entire field.
With five birdies for the tournament, senior Morgan Kauffman tied Goodley for the team-high and finished 16th overall at 233 (74-79-80) in the penultimate tournament of her Austin Peay career.
Sophomore Ashton Goodley tied for 38th with a 242 (80-80-82), one shot ahead of junior AnnaMichelle Moore (83-80-80-243). Freshman Meghann Stamps (94-81-79-254) rounded out the lineup and capped her tournament with a final-round 79, giving her three rounds in the 70s out of her last five.
As the individual, senior Amber Bosworth made a compelling case for inclusion in the lineup at next week’s Ohio Valley Conference Championships. Her 238 (80-84-74) was concluded by a season-best 74, tying her for second among individuals and 27th overall. She also led the Govs with 32 pars in the 54-hole event.
Sara Robson‘s charges brought the regular season to a close this week, but that means the real prize still awaits. The Govs travel to Owens Cross Roads, Alabama next week for the 2017 OVC Women’s Golf Championships at Hampton Cove Golf Course.
