Sorrento, FL – Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s golf was able to fend off opponents to remain in fourth place to conclude the Citrus Challenge, which wrapped up Tuesday at RedTail Golf Club.
The Govs fired a 305 in the final round to finish up at 914 (303-306-305), making a valiant charge but ultimately unable to overtake Georgia State (912) for third.
Murray State (873) took the team title, with Keiser (894) as runner-up and Dartmouth (922) keeping the top-five the same as Monday.
A final-round 77 kept freshman Taylor Dedmen firmly in the top-10. The Plant City native’s 226 (74-75-77) kept her tied for ninth. She started her day with a birdie on the par-4 at No. 13, helping her post a 39 on the back-nine of the course.
A pair of Austin Peay upperclassmen posted strong final days en route to top-20 finishes. For senior Reagan Greene, a final-round 76 kept her in sole possession of 12th with a 227 (74-77-76), aided by a one-over 37 on the front nine. Junior Meghann Stamps struggled to start, starting with bogey’s on four of her first five, but she caught fire with a 33 on the front nine; she finished with a team-best 74 on the day, moving up to a tie for 13th with a 229 (80-75-74) as the lone Gov to improve her score each day.
Twin sisters Taylor and Ashton Goodley fired matching 236s to finish tied for 34th. Taylor Goodley (77-79-80) carded three birdies on the front nine, including the difficult 336-yard par-4 on No. 3, while Ashton Goodley (78-80-78) posted a team-best 38 on the back nine in the final round.
The Govs will take a 10-day hiatus before trading the suns of Florida for the hills of eastern Kentucky, competing in the Colonel Classic, March 29th-30th, at the University Club at Arlington.
