No. 1 Lynn smashes records, extends program-record winning streak

No. 1 Lynn, No. 2 Rollins, No. 3 Barry, No. 4 Florida Tech, No. 6 Saint Leo, No. 9 Florida Southern at the Lady Moc Golf Classic

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Lynn continued to re-write its own history books as it extended its program-record winning streak to five tournaments following a two-stroke victory at the Lady Moc Golf Classic on Tuesday. The Fighting Knights set a school record for 54-hole scoring with an 886 while Samantha Smolen picked up her second individual win of the season with a program and tournament-best 216 total on the 6,085-yard, par 72 Grasslands Country Club course.

A two-stroke lead after the opening round quickly improved to eight following a tournament-best 289 in the second round. Unfortunately for the Fighting Knights, the rest of the field caught up to the top-ranked team in the nation. No. 25 Nova Southeastern closed the gap to two shots (888) and second-ranked Rollins four back (890) at the end. Fourth-ranked Florida Tech (902) and No. 11 West Florida (918) rounded out the top-five. 

Lynn’s 886 total smashed the previous 54-hole low of 898, which was set last year at the Lady Moc Classic. This is just the second 54-hole event under 900 in program history.

Smolen is now the record-holder for 36 and 54-hole scoring. She previously broke the 36-hole total twice this season and beat the previous 54-hole best of 218 set by Natasha Morgan in 2006. She finished with scores of 72-71-73 for her second victory of the season and fourth of her career.

No. 5 St. Edward's, No. 7 Tarleton State at the Lady Rattler Invitational

SAN ANTONIO -- Tarleton State finished in second place after slipping one spot following the conclusion of round two-play at the Lady Rattler Invitational, held at Dominion Golf Course.

The TexAnns were just four shots off of Monday's pace, carding a +23 (311) on Monday to finish the event with a score of +42 (307-311=618).

St. Edward's managed to come back from four-strokes down, recording a second-round score of even-par (288) on Tuesday and to finish 19-strokes ahead of the TexAnns at +23 (311-288=599). SEU's Haley Haught won the individual title after carding a -8 (64) on Tuesday. Haught finished the event -3 (141) after posting a +5 (77) on Monday.
