Joe Addonizio

The Quinnipiac women’s golf team competed in its first Northeast Conference Championships on Saturday in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The Bobcats finished in last place of the 11 competing teams with a final score of 1,235 (+371).

Senior Brianne Tansey was the top performer for the Bobcats, finishing in 45th place and shooting a total of 278 (+62) in the three day tournament.

Fairleigh Dickinson took home the team title, shooting 941 (+77) overall, while Anna Palsson of Long Island was the top individual, shooting a 225 (+9).

Quinnipiac showed potential for the future with freshman Jennifer Forlenza finishing close to Tansey with a 284 (+68) score.

The freshman also had the best round of the entire season for the Bobcats on the final day when she shot an 89. Junior Amanda Nagel trailed behind Forlenza with a total score of 296 (+80).

Farleigh Dickinson continued their NEC domination by slating their fourth straight championship. FDU had the lowest total each round on their way to the team victory.

Palsson was the best overall golfer in the Daytona Beach tournament. The Long Island star finished with a total of 225 strokes which was good for a score of +9.

The Bobcats will look to improve on their results next season as they graduate just one senior.

Nagel will lead the charge along with rising senior Stacey Kmill. Along with the seniors they will have one junior and four sophomores.
