GREENVILLE, North Carolina - The UNCW women's golf team was awarded second place at Lady Pirate Intercollegiate after unplayable conditions forced the cancellation of the final round Tuesday.
The two-day, 54-hole event, which was being played at the par-72, 6,004-yard Greenville Country Club, was reduced to an 18-hole tournament after torrential rain Monday afternoon forced the cancellation of the final 36-holes.
Tied at seven-over-par 295 following the opening round, Maryland claimed the team tournament title over UNCW due to the fifth player tie breaker rule. Fellow Colonial Athletic Association member Old Dominion (301) finished third, followed by Elon (302) in fourth. No. 33 Coastal Carolina and Southern Miss finished in a tie for fifth at 303.
Maryland's Juliet Vongphoumy claimed medalist honors with a 4-under-par 68, two strokes ahead of Boston College's Cristina McQuiston (70). Junior Lori Beth Adams (71) took third, giving the Abermale, N.C. product her third Top 10 finish of the season. Eight golfers, including freshman Johanna Bjoerk, finished tied for fourth at even par and were named to the all-tournament squad
UNCW closes out the fall portion of its 2012-13 schedule with The Landfall Tradition. The 11th edition of the event will take place Oct. 26-28 on the Country Club of Landfall's Jack Nickalus Course.
