Flashes Finish 11th at Central District Invite
Germino, Morrow both shoot one-over 73; Germino finishes tied for fourth overall
PARRISH, Fla. – The Kent State women's golf team concluded their second tournament of the spring season Tuesday afternoon with an 11th place finish at the Central District Invitational, hosted by Michigan State University at River Wilderness Golf Club.
In a tournament that featured 11 teams in the top 50 nationally and 19 of the top 100 golfers in the country, the Golden Flashes were unable to keep their momentum from their solid second round on Monday, which was tied for second-lowest during the afternoon session.
"Sometimes that little break in the action helps give you a new start," said head coach Mike Morrow. "We played good golf and kept ourselves in the game, but we need to be more consistent throughout the tournament."
Senior Mercedes Germino (Necochea, Argentina) made a move Tuesday for individual medalist honors, closing within two strokes before finishing with a one-over 73. Germino concluded the tournament with a one-over 217, which tied for fourth in the 75-golfer field.
Senior Mandi Morrow (Kent, Ohio) also carded a one-over 73 on Tuesday, moving her up to a tie for 31st place. Morrow cut her score each round and finished with a 12-over 228.
Freshman Jennifer Ha (Calgary, Alberta) was unable to keep her pace from Monday, shooting a seven-over 79 to finish in a tie for 47th place.
TCU won the team title by one stroke over Oklahoma, while Oklahoma's Chirapat Jao-Javanil held on for medalist honors with a four-under 212.
Kent State will break for three weeks before participating in the Lady Gator Invitational March 16-18 in Gainesville, Fla.
