Georgia Golf: Women Golfers In Summer Competition

Alexander carded successive scores of 73-77-77-76 to finish at 15-over 303. That effort led the USVI to a 12th-place finish in the team competition.

Rising sophomore Mary Ellen Shuman reached the round of 16 at the Women’s Western Amateur at Lancaster Country Club in Lancaster, Pa. Shuman tied for 42nd in two days of stroke play qualifying after shooting 78-77=155. She then defeated Lindsay McGetrick, a rising senior at N.C.
