PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – The Florida Southern women's golf team matched its first-round score by shooting a 315 on Tuesday and finished in a tie for 11th place at the Guy Harvey Invitational.
The first-round 315 was good enough to put Moccasins in seventh place on Monday, but they fell into a tie for 11th place out of 18 teams with a two-day total of 630. The Mocs finished even with Armstrong State, who also shot a pair of 315's.
An even-par 72 from Emily Rymer allowed the senior from Orlando to move nine spots up the leader board in the second round. She finished in a three-way tie for third place with a 148 for 36 holes, even with Lynn's Samantha Smolen and Nova Southeastern's Mailen Domecq Chantry.
Rymer finished five shots behind tournament medalist Alazne Urizar from the Savannah College of Art and Design, whose tournament-low 70 in the second round gave her a one-under 143. Tuesday's 72 not only tied Rymer's best round of the season, but it also marks the 33rd time in her last 36 rounds that she has shot a 79 or better.
Freshman Abbey Williams jumped 14 spots in the standings on Tuesday. Williams' three-over 75 gave the Marietta, Ga. native a 24th-place finish, tied with Brendie Rockholt from Armstrong State and Paloma Vaccaro from West Florida.
Junior Colleen Panosian (Smyrna, Ga.) followed up her 80 with an 83 to put her in a tie for 51st place. Finishing one shot behind Panosian in a tie for 56th was Emma Marlatt (Chapel Hill, N.C.). Marlatt, a redshirt junior, carded a two-day total of 164. Rounding out the Mocs was freshman Kolby McWilliams (Tallahassee, Fla.), who shot a 173 for 36 holes and finished in a tie for 86th.
Lynn (605) and Nova Southeastern (613) placed first and second, respectively. Flagler College shot a tournament-low 299 on Tuesday to secure a third-place finish alongside California Baptist with a 615.
The Mocs will finish the fall portion of their 2014-15 schedule at the Saint Leo Fall Classic at the Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club in Dade City, Fla. Round one begins on Monday, Oct. 20.
