Tigers Place Tenth at Braun Intercollegiate


EVANSVILLE, Ind. --- The Tennessee State women’s golf team closed out the fall portion of the season on Tuesday at the Charles Braun Jr. Intercollegiate. The Tigers placed 10th after carding a 699 at the Par-72, 6,032 yard, Oak Meadow Country Club.

Savannah Szozda (85-82=167) cut three strokes off her day one score to lead TSU for the second consecutive round. The freshman dropped a 10 foot putt on No. 17 as she placed 33rd.

Fellow freshman Morgan Rood (90-85-175) used eight pars on the day to post a team scoring 85. On No. 18, Rood pushed her tee shot into a sand trap. The Lynnwood, Wash., used a 7-iron from 160 yards out to 10 yards short of the green. Rood chipped on and one putted to save par.

Natalie Spicer (87-87=174) carded her second straight 87 to score for the Tigers, while Paige Harlin and Haleigh Riley each scored a 93. Harlin missed the green on the approach shot on the par-5, 6th, and chipped to five feet before making the putt to save par.

Riley hit 10 fairways and nine greens while recording three pars on Tuesday. The freshman took advantage of a fortunate bounce as her tee shot on a par-3 ricocheted off a tree and landed 12 feet from the pin. Riley just missed the birdie as her putt finished inches away setting up a tap in for par.

The Tigers will return to the links on Mar. 3 in a duel match with Lipscomb.
