Megan Taylor from Cambridge T13 finish at 

Wingate Challenge

Charlotte, North Carolina --The Wingate University women's golf team moved two spots up the leader board to finish third in the Wingate Intercollegiate Challenge at the Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation  (par 73, 5847 yards) this week.
The Bulldogs completed the 36-hole event at 644 (Wingate Intercollegiate Challenge leader boardsWingate Intercollegiate Challenge team-by-team scores).
"Even though the sun was shining, the wind was up today," Wingate women's golf coach Erin Thorne says. "The conditions make the course a little more difficult. I am very proud of all 10 girls for fighting through to post the scores we did. Even without our best scores, we were able to close out the regular season on a good note."
Wingate junior Mikaela Hadaway (Dayton, Ohio) tied for first place with Queens senior Grace Glaze (Clemson, South Carolina) after the completion of 36 holes. Both student-athletes posted scores of 152. Glaze shot a one-under-par 72 Monday after an 80 Sunday. Hadaway had a 75 Monday following her 77 Sunday. Glaze won the sudden-death play-off at the second extra hole.
 The Wingate "B" team shot the third-best round Monday with a 323. Only Limestone (307) and Queens (313) had lower Monday scores. Bulldog junior Megan Taylor (Buckden, Cambridgeshire, England), pictured left, recorded a 78 Monday to lead the Wingate "B" team. She finished the Wingate Challenge tied for 13th place at 159.

The Wingate Intercollegiate Challenge completes the regular season for the Bulldogs. Wingate will host the 2016 South Atlantic Conference women's golf tournament April 10-12 at Monroe Country Club.
