DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – The John A. Logan College women’s golf team finished 15th out of 17 teams at the National Junior College Athletic Asssociation championship meet held in Daytona Beach, Fla.
The fourth and final round of the tournament Thursday was called off due to inclement weather.
Logan wrapped up third-round play Wednesday with its best round of the tournament (352) and totaled 1,105 through 54 holes. The Volunteers placed one spot or 12 strokes behind 14th-place Rend Lake (1,093).
The host school, Daytona State, won the meet with a combined score of 876, or 25 strokes better than runner-up, Seminole State, Fla. (901).
Top individual performer for Logan was sophomore Adrian Brown. The Carterville native had a combined three-round total of 260 or two strokes better than sophomore, Reagan Keepes, of Mount Carmel (262).
Freshman Madison Bushue of Effingham finished at 289 and sophomore Payton Choate of Trico checked in at 294.
“It was nice to finish on a positive note with our third-round score of 352,” said Vols head coach Bill Glenn. “I wish we could have followed that up with a strong final round, but the rain didn’t give us that opportunity. Overall, I’m proud of the girls. They gave their best effort and that’s all I can ask.”
