Women's Golf Places Third at GMAC Championships, Vlacovsky Fourth

(LEXINGTON, Kentucky) - The Walsh University Women's Golf team wrapped up their 2018-19 season with an impressive finish at the G-MAC Championships. The 2 day, 54 hole event, was played at The University Club of Kentucky's Wildcat course Friday and Saturday. The Cavaliers rallied during an extended round one and unpleasant weather all weekend to lock in their third place finish.

Day One

With a weather forecast that was brutal all around, play during round one was extended from 27 holes to 36 holes to try and avoid what was headed towards Lexington Saturday. The Cavaliers would fight thru strong wind and constant downpours all day but would ultimately land themselves in third place behind Findlay and Tiffin. Michele Vlacovsky would post rounds of 80 and 77 and land herself in fourth place overall. Kayleigh McHugh would add rounds of 84 and 83 for the Cavaliers on day one. Kerra Loomis turned in an 87 and 84 while freshmen Alexis Green followed right behind her with an 84 and 86. Amanda Scala would round out the lineup for the Cavs posting rounds of 83 and 94 on the opening day. The Cavaliers would shoot 331 and 330 after the first 36 holes and would trail behind second place Tiffin by only 7 shots heading into the final round.

Day Two

The final round of the Championship would leave the Cavaliers starting in the same conditions as before, rainy and cold. Off to a rough start, the Cavaliers would struggle to get some momentum. As the round progressed and play became more consistent, the Cavaliers would end up holding onto the third place spot and posting a final team total of 334. Solid back nine rounds from Vlacovsky and McHugh would help the Maroon and Gold finish strong coming down the stretch. Vlacovksy would double her second to last hole to shoot 2 over on the back after a 7 straight pars. She would go onto to post a solid 77 in her final round as a Cavalier. McHugh would also lend a huge hand in the Cavs third place finish after posting her final round of 80 for the Cavaliers. Kerra Loomis would finish her career as a Cav with an 88 and Amanda Scala and Alexis Green would both add rounds of 89 to finalize the Cavalier lineup.

The Maroon and Gold would find themselves third on the list for Par 3 and Par 4 scoring for the 54 hole event and third on the list for overall Pars made per team. Vlacovsky would lead the field throughout the entire championship with total Pars made at 36. Vlacovsky would also be named to the G-MAC All-Conference team after her fourth place finish.

The University of Findlay would capture back to back G-MAC titles after shooting a three day total of 932. Findlay Junior Meredith Wipper would take home the individual medalist title.
