SNOW HILL — Consistency was key for the UNC Pembroke women’s golf team at the Cutter Creek Invitational, as the Braves carded a final-round 311 to pair with Monday’s 310 en route to defending their team title in Snow Hill.
The Braves (+45) bettered their 2015 winning margin by one stroke, besting second-place Mount Olive (+55) by ten shots over the 36-hole tournament at the Cutter Creek Golf Club course. The Saints of Limestone (+64) vaulted from sixth to third Tuesday, while Coker (+67) and Barton (+69) took fourth and fifth in the 11-team field.
UNCP senior Ashlii Thompson (+5) fell one spot into a runner-up finish with a final round 78 after carding a one-under 71 Monday. Kaitlyn Gribbon (+2) won the individual title for Belmont Abbey with two rounds of 73 in the field of 60 players.
Alexandria Bare (+9) inched up one slot into a tie for fifth, firing a final-round 75, while Amanda Levy slipped a single spot into a share of 11th after a Tuesday 77. Freshman Megan Munroe carded back-to-back 81s, finishing in a tie for 23rd and fellow freshman Meredith Godwin scraped three strokes off her Monday score, shooting 85 and tying for 38th.
The Braves will look to make it two wins in a row next Monday and Tuesday at the Full Moon BBQ Invitational hosted by Montevallo. The 36-hole tournament will be played at the Timberline Golf Club in Calera, Alabama. The Black & Gold haven’t won back-to-back tournaments since March of 2013.
