Blythewood, S.C. – Senior, Danielle Grace (SR/Seminole, Fla.), fired a strong round of 79 in difficult weather conditions at the 5,900 yard championship Columbia Country Club in Blythewood, S.C. to lead the Bryan Lady Lions to a 2nd place finish at the Columbia College Invitational.
Grace tied for first place after the 1st days results were washed out due to heavy rainfall. Grace's outstanding short game allowed her to make several difficult up and downs around the tricky greens of the championship course despite the testing weather. Her round helped the lady lions to a 2nd place finish behind tournament winner, St. Andrews (N.C.).
Grace and Paige Hartman of St. Andrews tied for first place. Also pacing the Lady Lions were freshman, Krista Reinhardt (FR/Valrico, Fla.), who shot an 86 followed by sophomore, Christina Lee (SO/Loudon, Tenn.) at 95, junior Liz Albert at 96, and freshman Megan Clarkson (FR/Greenback, Tenn.) at 99.
Head Bryan Lions Golf Coach, Peter Bollant, commented that he was proud of the way the girls fought hard through very challenging circumstances on a championship golf course, "All of the girls showed a lot of perseverance and grit. I was especially proud of Danielle in her tie for 1st place."
