WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Paced by recent alum Lori Beth Adams, the UNCW women’s golf program had another solid showing at the Women’s Eastern Golf Association Amateur Championship this week.

Adams, who completed her collegiate career last month in the NCAA East Regional, posted her second top-five finish in as many seasons in the WEGA Amateur Championship with a three-round total of 71-75-73=219 to claim fourth place.

Rising junior Meghan Theiss held a share of the 36-hole lead before completing the tournament in 15th place with a 74-71-80=225 scorecard. Rising senior Mallory Warrick (81-89-78=248/62nd), incoming freshman Kayla Thompson (83-83-84=250/66) and 2014 graduate Megan Burnham (83-78-101=262/78th) also participated in the event.  

Held June 10-12 at the Founder’s Club of the St. James Plantation in nearby Southport, the WEGA is one of the oldest and most prestigious women's amateur championships in the United States, with the inaugural championship taking place in 1906.  

NC State graduate Ana Menendez (77-72-68=218) took home the title with a playoff victory over Central Florida product Monifa Sealy (74-71-73=218) after the duo finished the three-day event tied with a two-over-par total.
