Cards Place Second, Hartlage Wins Moon Golf Invitational
In sunny, warm Florida is the Louisville women's golf team. They wrapped up play at the Moon Golf Invitational yesterday. The Cards placed second overall with a score of -6 (858).
UCF ran away with the win at 849. The Cards' score of 858 just snuck in at second. Oklahoma and Campbell tied for third at 859.
Lauren Hartlage took home the gold in the individual. The junior used a birdie in the final hole for the one-stroke victory of 10-under par. It is her first individual title of the season.
"It was a solid week for our team as we begin the spring season and always great to be in the last group with a chance to win the tournament," said Courtney Trimble. "We played really well all week, but stumbled a little coming down the stretch and it ended up costing us the tournament."
Women's golf has a break from events for a few weeks before heading to the Tar Heel Classic in the Dominican Republic March 15-16.
