CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. - The John A. Logan College women's golf team placed second Tuesday at a five-team tournament hosted by Lindenwood-Belleville University and played at Dalhousie Golf Course in Cape Girardeau.

With temperatures in the 30s and a brisk wind, individual and team scores were not the best. The Volunteers turned in a round of 361 or 10 strokes higher than the first day.

Sophomore Mollie Borowiak of Nashville had the best round of the day with an 84. Sophomore Brittanie Garrison of Carmi followed with an 86 and had the best two-day total at 169 based on her round of 83 on Monday.

Garrison placed seventh overall at the tourney. Borowiak (175) was ninth. Abby Miller of Anna was 12th (181).

Tops among the freshmen was Morgan Stacks, who finished tied for 14th (182). Sophomore Dana Kaufmann of Carterville was 17th at 187. Freshman Kirsten Faulkner of Massac County was 20th at 192 and freshman Chelsea Capel of Marion was 25th at 205.

"I'm very proud of the girls the way they competed in such difficult conditions," said Vols head coach Bill Glenn. "These last two days are a tough way to start a spring season, but the weather's bound to improve soon. I think that once the girls are able to get out and practice more regularly, the scores will drop and we'll start shooting in the 330s and 320s like we did in the fall."

Logan will compete in the Saluki Invitational at Hickory Ridge Golf Course in Carbondale Sunday and Monday.
