The William and Mary women's golf team finished competition at the Pinehurst Challenge on Tuesday, shooting 311 in the final round to finish in 10th place out of 19 teams at 933 (+69).  Richmond won the team trophy by four strokes over College of Charleston, 899-903, and the Spiders' Caroline Lovette was also the individual medalist with a score of 219 (+3).

Leading the way for the Tribe was sophomore Anna McMullen (Monroe, La.), who shot 80 in the final round to improve to a tie for 31st overall at 233 (+17).  Senior Betsy Birchall (Mountain Brook, Ala.) climbed the leaderboard to a tie for 47th after her 77 on Tuesday, and finished one stroke ahead of freshman Alessandra Liu (Cynwyd, Pa.), who tied for 53rd.  Sophomore Kellie Edelblut (New Hope, Pa.) had the best score of the day for W&M, 75 (+3), and tied for 56th overall at 239.  Classmate Kelly Okun (Palm Beach, Fla.), who was forced to withdraw from the second round due to injury, gamely came back on Tuesday and finished the tournament.

William and Mary is off for just over three weeks, before returning to play at the CAA Championships.  The conference tournament will run Friday-Sunday, April 19-21, at the St. James Plantation Golf Club in Southport, N.C.  The top team and individual earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals.
