Scovel, Rhyne Complete Wingate Challenge


Represented by two individuals, Taylor Scovel and Kelsie Rhyne, the Brevard women's golf team concluded its fourth tournament of the spring on Tuesday afternoon.

The Tornados, who took part in the Wingate Challenge in Monroe, N.C., played on the par 72 course at the Rolling Hills Country Club which is 5,968 yards in distance.

Scovel was the top finisher for Brevard, placing 54th in the event after shooting 37-over-par (181) in two rounds of play. Scovel's scores included a 91 in the first and a 90 in the second as she was 18-over-par on Tuesday afternoon. After recording two pars on the front nine, Scovel came through with three on the back nine at the 10th, 11th and 13th holes to shave two strokes from her front nine score.

Rhyne carded a 189 for the Tornados, finishing 45-over par with rounds of 95 and 94, as she finished in 56th. The senior posted four pars on the final day and three on the front nine, which took place at the second, fifth and ninth holes.

The top individual finish belonged to Ainee O'Connor (Lenoir-Rhyne), who completed a win on the first playoff against Nicola Robertson (King), who finished with a bogey. The Bears also earned first place in the team rankings with a score of 615 (312-303), edging host Wingate (311-314—625), which finished in second.

Brevard concludes its 2018 women's golf schedule next week when the Tornados travel to North Greenville to play March 26-27.
