DAHLONEGA – Megan Sabol finished in a tie for third individually as the University of North Georgia women’s golf team placed second in the Fourth Annual LeeAnn Noble Memorial at Achasta Golf Club. Lee set a new 18- (290) and 36-hole (586) record on the final day to finish as the tournament champion.
“I thought we played quite well,” said head women’s golf coach Leigh Anne Hunter. “I was very happy to get some wins over some regional opponents which are crucial at moving us up in the region rankings as we push toward the postseason.”
The Nighthawks (605) finished one stroke ahead of Young Harris (606) for the tournament runner-up. North Georgia’s two-round score tied the program’s best set earlier this season at the Patsy Rendleman Invitational. Lenoir-Rhyne (617) and Lincoln Memorial (620) rounded out the top-five teams in the tournament.
Sabol shot a three-over-par 147 in the tournament, finishing four strokes back of Lee’s Haverly Harrold for the individual title. Carson Roberts finished in a three-way tie for fifth at 148.
North Georgia will next compete at the Newberry Fall Invitational on October 30-31 in Elgin, S.C. That tournament will serve as the end to the fall season.
