Lahinch’s Aine Donegan turned in a typically consistent performance as the Indiana women’s golf team played their best golf of the weekend in the final round of the VyStar Gators Invitational.

The Hoosiers finished in 14th-place at the Mark Bostic Golf Course on Sunday afternoon (308-299-296; +63) with the No. 7-ranked Florida Gators and the 10th-ranked Michigan Wolverines tied for the team championships after shooting an 851 (+11).

Freshman Donegan signed off with a one-over par round of 71 to finish tied-22nd on the individual board at seven-over par. The Irish international had opened the tournament with a six-over 76 but bounced back well over the weekend, playing her final 36-holes in one-over with five birdies across a decent weekend.


Donegan produced the two lowest rounds of any Hoosier in the field in the second and third rounds, respectively, finishing inside the top-25 of all five tournaments she has played in her collegiate career.

Killarney’s Valerie Clancy signed for her best round of the weekend on Sunday with a five-over 75 to tie for 60th-place after shooting a 228 (77-76-75; +18).

The Hoosiers will be back on the course two more times in the month of March, beginning with the Briar’s Creek Invitational on March 14-15 in Johns Island, S.C. IU will then close the month with the Chattanooga Classic from March 27-29.
