Lady Cards finish 21st at Regionals

Posted:
STILLWATER, Okla. – For the second consecutive season, the Lamar women’s golf team watches their season come to an end at the NCAA Regional Championships. The two-time defending Southland Conference champions carded a 318-307-319 – 944 to finish 21st overall, eight strokes back of No. 15 LSU.

Standing in 22nd for the majority of the round, Lamar finished strong on the final five holes of the event despite being down a golfer. LU overcame the loss of junior Nghi Ngo, who had to withdraw from competition, to leapfrog Wichita State down the stretch.

“I can’t say enough about this team,” said head coach Brian White. “To lose the amount of talent we did last year, and to be as young as we are, and repeat as SLC champions is a huge accomplishment.

“Obviously, things didn’t go our way here this week. We missed some shots that we normally make, and you can’t that do against teams this talented,” added White.

Freshman Kelly Erasmus led the Lady Cardinals, despite firing an eight-over par Saturday on the par-72 Karsten Creek Country Club course. She finished tied for 66th with a 233.

Sophomore Taylor Stockton ended the week a stroke back of Erasmus. Stockton tied for 73rd with a three-round 79-75-80 – 234. Stockton finished just ahead of freshman Wenny Chang who recorded an 81-77-78 – 236 to place tied for 84th.

Freshman Bertille Dupont closed out the Lamar scorecard Saturday. Dupont finished tied for 107th with a three-day score of 81-85-81 – 247.
