Team Box | Individual Box

ROME, Ga. - The Birmingham-Southern women's golf team posted the best second-round team score today and took second-place at the 2008 Chick-fil-A Invitational tournament hosted by Berry College.

BSC shot a 310 on the day, two strokes ahead of round 1 leader Lindsey Wilson College, but they finished eight strokes behind for both days.  The Panthers were able to pass Berry and take the second-place finish.  Berry finished 20 strokes behind BSC.  Oglethorpe University had a player withdraw during the second round, making their short-handed team unable to post a second-round score and were disqualified.

In the individual table, Kelley Burgess posted the best score for BSC with a fourth-place overall finish.  Kelley finished 10 strokes over par (154) seven strokes behind the leader.  Jordan Hardy finished one stroke behind her teammate with a 155, good for 6th-place.  (Burgess tied with Lindsey Wilson's Jessica Smith for fourth.)

The Panthers will wrap-up their 2008-09 schedule next Monday and Tuesday at the Rhodes College Invitational.  The event will be held at the Tunica National Course in Tunica, Mississippi just south of Memphis.
