Bulldogs Finish 13th At APSU Intercollegiate

Oct. 23, 2007

Lauren Showers tied for seventh in the final individual standings and Butler placed 13th in the team competition at the F & M Bank APSU Intercollegiate women's golf tournament, hosted by Austin Peay University on Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 22-23). The scheduled 36-hole tournament was called after one day because of heavy rains in the Clarksville, Tenn., area.

Showers shot an opening round 77 in the wet conditions on Monday, and then waited to see if the tournament would continue on Tuesday. Continued rains forced officials to cancel the competition.

Freshman Allison Lipps carded a 79 on Monday and wound up in a tie for 17th in the 14-team meet. Freshman Nicole Simon tied for 69th with an 89, freshman Molly Fields tied for 75th with a 91 and freshman Marcella Moreman tied for 78th with a 93.

Indiana State and Eastern Illinois were tied for the tournament lead at the end of the first day, and Indiana State was awarded the title based on a tie-breaker.
