Georgina from Essex has top 10 "Panther" finish

Georgina Blackman (Western Kentucky), a sophomore from Essex, was the top Brit in the Panther Intercollegiate women's tournament which ended at Eagles Landing, Stockbridge, Georgia today.

Georgina, pictured right, had scores of 75, 72 and 75 for a total of 222 and seventh place in a field of 84 players.
She finished 11 shots behind the winner, Elon's Kelsey Badmaev who scored back-to-back victories and and also led Elon to victory for the second week in a row.
Kelsey's scores were 71, 72 and 68 for five-under-par 211 over a par-72, 6,033yd course. That final round of 68 enabled her to leapfrog over the third-round leader before the end of 72 holes.
Monifieth's Heather Munro, a second-year student at Elon, finished 15th on 226 with steady scores of 75, 75 and 76. She was also a member of the winning Elon University, North Carolina line-up last week.
Elon (887) won by 12 shots from Western Kentucky (899) with Western Michigan (904) third in a field of 15 teams.
Former Scottish U18 girls champion Lesley Atkins (Louisiana-Monre) finished 76th on 252 with scores of 86, 81 and 85.
Louisiana-Monroe (882) finished 14th in the team event.
 Milton Keynes student T30 finish in field of 104

Shamiso Hatchard (Bethune-Cookman), a freshman from Milton Keynes, finished T30 in a field of 104 at the Kingsmills Intercollegiate at Kingsmills Resort, Williamsburg, Virginia.

Shamiso, pictured right, had scores of 76, 76 and 84 for 236 - 19 strokes behind the winner by one shot, Sathika Ruenreong (Toledo) (71-73-73 for one-over 217).
Kirsty Beckwith (St John's University, New York) from Leeds finished T49 on 242 with rounds of 79, 76 and 87.
The weather must have been tough for most of the players over the final 18 holes as Olivia Jay (Radford) followed up earlier rounds of 79 and 86 with a 92 for 257 and 88th place.
Toledo (908) won the team title ahead of Pennsylvania (916) with William and Mary (923) third. Bethune-Cookman (942) came seventh, Radford (983) 17th and St John's, NY (1003) last of 19.
Think that St John's should get the talent scouts out quickly to field a new team for the 2016-2017 season!
