Bucs wrap up regular season at Edisto Island Invitational

EDISTO ISLAND, S.C. - Charleston Southern wrapped up its final tune-up heading into next weekend's Big South Women's Golf Championships as the Buccaneers finished 12th overall at the Edisto Island Invitational.

The Bucs battled through brisk conditions on the course to shoot a final round 315 finishing just behind Big South rivals USC Upstate and Presbyterian. CSU's three-round score of 925 put the Bucs 73-over-par for the tournament.

Ellen Hume recorded another top-10 finish in her freshman campaign to pace the Bucs in the field, while Daniela Intriago and Andriel Aimua rounded out the top three for CSU in the event.

North Florida continued its undefeated streak in the spring as the Ospreys took home the team title in the event. UNF finished 15-over-par for the tournament to hold off a late challenge from Delaware in recording their fourth consecutive tournament win.

Delaware (+18), Seton Hall (+22), College of Charleston (+25), and Xavier (+26) rounded out the top five teams in the tournament.

Delaware's Thitaree Sakulbunpanich and James Madison's Kate Owens shared co-champion honors over the three rounds. The duo combined to shoot 207, 6-under-par, to claim the titles.  UNF's Lissette Davalos (-2), Delaware's Ariane Klotz (-1), and Xavier's Mikayla Fitzpatrick (E) rounded out the individual top five.

Hume was the Bucs top finisher again as the London, England native battled through an up-and-down round. She birdied four holes on the back nine and added birdies on the 5th and 9th holes, but a double-bogey on 17 put her at even-par through the round. She finished 2-over for the tournament with a three-round score of 215.

Intriago made her way through the field to finish tied for 47th as the sophomore bounced back from a tough opening round to card her two best scores of the weekend over rounds two and three.  She birdied the sixth, eighth, and 10th holes to finish with a 77 on the final round.

Aimua was third among the Bucs finishing tied for 54th overall in the field. The senior bounced back from a difficult opening stretch to finish with an 81 on the afternoon.

Kathryn Thorne placed 66th overall in the field after posting a final round 86 on the day. Fellow freshman Sarah Hameed placed 76th with a final round 90.
