Women's golf runner-up in HCAC tourney
The women’s golf team fell just three shots shy of defending its Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament title, turning in a 678 for the 36-hole event to finish runner-up to Franklin College.
Transylvania, coached by Mark Turner ’77, entered the tourney boasting the HCAC’s two scoring average leaders in sophomores Janca Millet (78.9) and Megan Foley (80.4). They proved true to form when Foley captured medalist honors with a 155 (77-78), which placed her on the All-HCAC first team and earned her conference Player of the Year honors. Millett was runner-up with a 162 (85-77), and junior Megan Graeter finished fifth with a 171 (89-82). They joined Foley on the All-HCAC team. Foley was also an HCAC Player of the Week.
The Pioneers’ regular season play was highlighted by second place finishes in the Centre Fall Invitational, hosted by Centre College, and in the Transy Fall Invitational, held at Lexington’s University Club, also the site of the HCAC tournament.
At Centre, Millett was medalist with a three-over-par 75 as the Pioneers finished seven shots back of Bellarmine University and one shot ahead of Kentucky Wesleyan College. In the Transy meet, Foley fired a 77 to take medalist honors, and Millett was runner-up with an 80.
