MORGANTON, N.C – With a 13-stroke improvement from day one, the University at Albany women’s golf team placed ninth out of 14 teams after shooting a 324 in Monday’s second round of the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate in Morganton, N.C. The Great Danes totaled a 661 (+85) in the tournament, five strokes off eighth-place Towson (656) and one in front of 10th-place finisher Appalachian State (662).

Individually, Victoria Choi led UAlbany, tying for 19th-place in a field of 78. She was consistent on the course, shooting an 80 in both rounds. Paige Fujihara finished with a 169, tied for 48th-place, after chalking a score of 86 on Monday. Rosalee Hearns and Lisa Agoglia each scored a 171, as Agoglia shot a team-best 77 in the final round, while also cutting 17 strokes off her opening round score. Sam Schuffenecker finished closely behind with a 173, including Monday’s 81 that marked an 11-stroke improvement.
