GALENA, Ohio -- The Big Red women's golf team moved into third place after shooting a 329 in the final round of the 2017 North Coast Athletic Conference Championship Series on Sunday at Royal American Golf Course.
The second leg of the NCAC Women's Golf Championship Series was scheduled to begin on Saturday at Royal American. However, the heavy amounts of rain on Saturday shortened the two-weekend, 72-hole event to a 54-hole tournament.
Senior Anne Miller stood out all tournament long, firing an 81 on Sunday. Miller finished the event with a score of 244 which landed her in a tie for fifth place. That performance earned her first-team All-NCAC honors. Freshman Emmy Timberlake followed in eighth place with a three-round score of 250. Timberlake's finish earned her second-team all-conference laurels and the distinction of being the first-ever NCAC Women's Golf Newcomer of the Year.
Senior Tina Berardi joined Timberlake on the All-NCAC second team after finishing 12th overall with 254 strokes. Berardi and freshman Nicole Wetoska fired the second-best scores for DU with matching 82s. Sophie Kollin was fourth on the team with an 84 as she closed out the tournament with a final score of 263.
Wittenberg's Macy Hubbard earned championship medalist honors while her teammate Jane Hopkinson-Wood was tabbed NCAC Women's Golfer of the Year. Wittenberg captured the team title with 944 strokes followed by DePauw (980) and Denison (1,006).
