Two Lions notch top-20 finishes at Lady Bucs Invitational

MIAMI LAKES, Fla. -- A pair of Saint Leo women's golfers, Amanda Jakobsson and Clare Connolly, earned top-20 status in the Lady Bucs Invitational. Jakobsson and Connolly completed the 54-hole event at six-over and nine-over respectively. Saint Leo came out in sixth place in the final team standings. 

Jakobsson was the top Saint Leo performer from start to finish, getting it started with a 74 in the first round and a team low 71 in the second. Tuesday the freshman carded a 77 to capture her second top-20 finish of the season and her lowest 54-hole score of her career. Jakobsson's second round 71 is also the lowest score by any Lion this season. 

Connolly rattled of scores of 81-73-71 to grab a piece of 19th place. It marks the second time the senior has placed in the top-20 this season. Connolly's third round 71 was the lowest 18-hole score of her career. 

Marie Coors, Kellianne May and Vilde Eriksen made up the rest of the Lions lineup, contributing two scores each to the team tally. Coors chipped in a 76 and 77 before slowing down a bit and registering a 78 in the final round. May went 75-81-78 and finished in 52nd place while Vilde Eriksen came in one stroke behind in a tie for 53rd. Eriksen carded 80-81-74. 

Lauren Petty competed as an individual and concluded the trip in 27th. The senior sandwiched a second round 73 with a 77 and 76. 

The Lions return to action April 5-6 in Morganton, N.C. for the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate hosted by Appalachian State.
