The William and Mary women's golf team earned a historic runner-up finish at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships Sunday, it's best-ever showing and three places better than W&M was projected to finish.  The Tribe shot 318 Sunday to finish at 633 (+57) overall, tied for Delaware and behind only first-time champion College of Charleston (618, +42).  The Cougars' Laura Fuenfstueck earned a six-stroke victory for the individual medal, carding 148 (+4) overall.

After rain wiped out Saturday's second round, Sunday dawned with a continuing light downpour.  Across the board, scores were on average three strokes worse than on Friday, but W&M dealt better than most with the adversity and gave up only three strokes across the entire team.  Freshmen Kelly Moran (Boulder, Colo.) and Kelly McGovern (The Woodlands, Texas) both earned all-tournament honors, tying for fifth place overall.  Moran shot 77 (+5) Sunday after a 79 on Friday, while McGovern flipped those scores with a 79 in the final round, and both finished at 156 (+12) overall.  McGovern finished the year with an average of 77.31 strokes per round, second-best ever among Tribe freshmen and sixth-best all-time.  Junior Anna McMullen (Monroe, La.) finished at 15th overall, carding 82 (+10) to finish with a weekend total of 160 (+16), and classmate Kellie Edelblut (New Hope, Pa.) was one stroke back in 16th place after closing with a round of 80 Sunday.  Sophomore Alessandra Liu (Cynwyd, Pa.) rounded out the team, tying for 22nd place after improving one stroke to an 82 in the final round and 165 (+21) overall.
