Towson traveled to the Chesapeake Bay Invitational, hosted by the United States Naval Academy at the Naval Academy Golf Course, and finished in second place this weekend.
Senior Emma Hijarne won the event over Julia Calbi of Dartmouth in a one-round playoff and received medalist honors. Hijarne played well, shooting a consistent 75 over all three rounds of the tournament. Towson finished overall with a combined score of 930.
“I am really proud of our accomplishments this weekend,” Head Coach Kate Schanuel said on towsontigers.com. “We set a game plan and stuck to it.”
The Chesapeake Bay Invitational featured an 11-team field consisting of Towson, Navy, Dartmouth, Penn, Hofstra, Quinnipiac, Wagner, Sacred Heart, Longwood, Citadel and Delaware State.
After day one of the Navy Invitational Towson snagged the second place lead and Hijarne was just two shots out of first place heading into Sunday’s final round. Buchanan tied for 14th after a final round 81, while sophomore Alexis Hios played as an individual and tied for 11th place.
Earlier in the week Buchanan’s birdie putt on the 18th hole secured the Tigananelli Towson Invitational Championship on Sept. 14. This was the first time in eight years Towson won the tournament.
“We definitely have lot of positives and momentum going into our tournament at UNC Greensboro,” Schanuel said on towsontigers.com.
The next tournament the Tigers play will be the Forest Oaks Fall Classic hosted by UNC Greensboro, Oct. 2-4.
