Women's Golf - Mon, Oct. 5, 2009
Junior Victoria Gonzalez shot a 79 to lead the Spring Hill College women's golf team to a first place finish at the rain-shorten Santa Rosa Beach Fall Finale in Florida.
 
Gonzalez, a native Miami, Fla., shot an opening round 79 to tie for 1st place following the cancellation of Monday's final round due to rain.
 
As a team, the Badgers shot 332 to finish 5 shots ahead of Birmingham-Southern College (337) and an impressive 39 shots ahead of third place Rhodes College (371).
 
This marks the second team victory for the Lady Badgers out of three events in the 2009-10 season.
 
Other scores for SHC included sophomore AnnMarie Coan of St. Louis with 83 strokes, freshman Chelsea Mayer with 84, senior Shea Bowers of Mobile's Murphy High School at 86 and her sister Jasmine Bowers closed with 93.
 
Head Coach Steve Hodges commented, "I'm so proud for our women.  I can't say enough about how hard they are working this year and how focused they are on our goals."
 
The Lady Badgers next play at the University of Mobile Fall Classic at the Azalea City Golf Course on November 2-3, 2009.
