Women's Golf - Thu, Apr. 21, 2016

Sydney Swingos started strong at the Mid-South Conference women's golf championship presented by Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac at Bowling Green Country Club.

The junior shot six over par on day one of the three-day event to hold sole control of sixth place. A much tougher day two slipped her into double-digit standings. However, she recovered to shoot better in the last round and finish with a 252, tied for 22nd.

"Sydney is a great golfer. She had a tough round and that's hard to recover from, but she let it go and refocused for a better third round," said GC women's coach Taylor Elder. "That's not an easy thing to do, especially under the schedule we played."

Georgetown opened its spring season with a match in Florida, but then did not play again until April. Including the three league championship rounds, the Tigers played 126 holes of golf in 17 days.

GC as a team finished sixth out of seven competitors with all scoring golfers finishing in the top 35.

Mary Catharine Borders was second for Georgetown with a three-day total of 260 and a 29th place finish. Haley Hart finished six strokes behind Borders and tied for 31st. Kylie Jo Speicher was the final scoring card. She shot a three-day 288 to finish tied for 35th.

Hailee Scheper was the fifth Tiger golfer on the course and saw improvement every day to finish 37th.

University of the Cumberlands opened with a field best 303 on day one, a 20-stroke lead over its closest competitor, and never looked back to take the title.
