The invitational was hosted by the University of North Carolina in Pembroke, NC. This year’s program was as 36-hole event, which set the record from past invitationals. 

The Nighthawks finished the tournament with a two-day total of 601, beating the previous record of +29 by four strokes. Both rounds of the tournament qualified for the top five all-time for a single round as a team.

UNG sophomore, Megan Sabol, shot a two-under-par 70 in the final round of the tournament, tying the her for third place. Her two-under is tied for the second best round in UNG history, tying with UNG sophomore, Karson Stone’s, round of 70 in the Columbus State University Lady Cougar Invitational in the spring of 2017.

Sabol told Fetch Your News that the Nighthawks have come a long way since last season, and that, “hard work and confidence shows. Not just with myself, but with my team…this year we are working hard and building confidence so we can play our best and go to Regionals in the spring.” Sabol also said that she has achieved two of her greatest career victories, so far, “I shot a 68 at the Patsy Rendelman Tournament last fall. I had never shot in the 60’s before and I think at that moment, I realized what I was capable of doing with my golf career. My second greatest personal victory would be winning the Peachbelt Conference Championship last spring. I had never thought that I would become Peachbelt Conference Player of the Year and then turn around and win the championship.”

UNG sophomore, Carson Roberts

Flagler College Junior, Pauline Tainton, won the tournament with a three-under 141. In the team standings, Lee won the tournament with a 36-hole total of 596, edging Florida Southern by a single stroke.

In an interview with Fetch Your News, UNG sophomore, Carson Roberts, explained that her greatest accomplishment so far has been, “bouncing back from an injury during my first semester and being in the top five consistently. My greatest golf accomplishment so far is being confident in myself and my game and improving over the two years I have been on this team.” Roberts also expressed how close the women’s golf team has become, “The teammates I have had over two years have become my best friends, and we truly are a family. My coaches have helped me grow mentally and physically over the years and I am grateful for the time they have dedicated to our team.”

The University of North Georgia women’s soccer team remains undefeated against Limestone after walking away with a 3-1 victory over the Saints Wednesday.

Three minutes after Limestone tied the game in the first half, freshman Abbie Crane blasted a shot into the net to take the lead. The Nighthawks struck first in the 13th minute when Dani Shartouny intercepted a low goal kick and took it herself to goal, taking the early lead. Limestone brought it back to even in the 25th minute on Megan O’Conner’s fifth goal of the young season.

Right after the Saint goal, Crane checked in and, three minutes later, found the net off a rebounded shot, giving the Nighthawks a 2-1 lead headed to halftime.

The Nighthawks found insurance in the 84th minute when Taylor Malasek finished off a counter started by Shartouny to push UNG to their third win of the season.
