White finishes second at Princess Anne

Posted

Stacey White finished as the individual runner-up and Campbell placed 10th in the final team standings after Sunday’s final round of the Princess Anne Invitational.

White (67-70-67—204) turned in the second-lowest 54-hole score in school history on the par-70 Princess Anne Country Club layout. Her bogey-free round Sunday included birdies on the par-3 seventh and par-four 14th and 16th holes.

Only Isabell Ekstrom’s 202 (67-67-68) total she posted in winning the 2018 Golfweek Program Challenge on the par-71 Caledonia Golf & Fish Club is better than White’s showing this weekend in the 31-year history of the program.

A senior from Brisbane, Australia, White tied for the lead in the 82-golfer field in par-4 scoring (-5), while playing the par-3 layouts 1-under and the par fives even. She made 10 birdies, 40 pars (T4) and just four bogeys.

White entered the clubhouse Sunday as the individual leader, but was overtaken by medalist Emily Maher of Virginia Tech (69-69-65—203), whose bogey-free final round included five birdies.

Campbell sophomore Emily Hawkins shot a 1-under 69 Sunday to finish in a tie for 11th (72-71-69—212) at two over. Competing as an individual, sophomore Alice Sundberg tied for 26th (69-74-74—217). Sophomore Anna Norfors tied for 73rd (74-78-78—230), senior Desiree Andersson finished 79th (77-80-81—238) and freshman Patricia Garre Muñoz 82nd (85-73-83—241).

LSU (279-283-281—843) and Virginia Tech (276-281-286—843) shared team honors. Chattanooga (280-291-285—856) finished third. Campbell placed 10th (290-292-295—877), one shot ahead of East Carolina.

The Camels conclude their fall schedule Oct. 18-20 with the Cardinal Cup, hosted by the University of Louisville.
