State freshman Whitney Brummett finished in a tie for 21st place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in a tie for 12th place as competition in the Lady Gator Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course came to a close Sunday afternoon. Brummett finished as the Seminoles leading golfer for the third time in five tournaments during this, her freshman season.

Taking home the tournament title was No. 18 Wake Forest after the Demon Deacons ended play with a score of 883 (+43).

The tournament’s individual medalist was Purdue’s Myrte Eikenaar, who finished the 54 holes with a 215 score (73-72-70), just five strokes over par. The tournament’s only ace came on the third day by Eikenaar’s teammate, Whitney Frykman, as she nailed a hole-in-one on the 11th hole, a par three hole.

Brummett (Eureka, Mo.) closed the event with a third round score of 78 but still managed to finish in a tie for 21st in the individual standings. She has now earned three top-25 finishes during her career. Brummett averaged 76.67 strokes during the event which opened the spring season for the Seminoles.
