The LaGrange College golf team wrapped up its fall season with a 10th-place finish in the Guilford Invitational at The Cardinal course in Greensboro, N.C.

After a tough first day when they shot a 327 in difficult conditions on what coach Lee Richter called "the hardest course we play each year," the Panthers bounced back for a 303 on Tuesday to move up two spots.


"They really came back and showed a lot of heart," Richter said. "It was a great

way to end the fall. I'm really proud of them."

Freshman Freddie Wolford, after struggling to an 86 in the first round, made a

14-stroke improvement and fired a 72 Tuesday.

"He was on cloud nine," Richter said.

Another freshman, Taylor Wynn, had a 75 Tuesday after opening with an 80. Adam Garrett posted scores of 78 and 82, Hunter Keener had rounds of 84 and 78, and Bjarki Juliusson fired an 85 in Round 1 and a 78 in the second round.

 

The Panthers' top player, Hudson Keener, was unable to play with a finger

injury.
