Freshman Lauren Walsh is certainly enjoying US college life at Wake Forest and had another superb weekend for the Deacons as she grabbed her third top-10 in as many events.

Walsh, who had been third after her opening round (-2) dropped to 9th after round two (-1) and her closing round of one-over par saw her finish in 9th place overall, but she certainly played her part for the team as her Wake Forest women’s golf team captured its second title of the season, winning the Lady Paladin Invitational.

The Demon Deacons shot even par during the final round at the Furman University Golf Course to finish at 1-under and post a five-shot victory.

Wake Forest was the only team to finish the event under par. Host Furman was runner-up at 4-over, while North Florida was third at 22-over. It was the second straight win that the Deacs have led wire-to-wire.

“This course played tough and you had to handle the adversity well to compete,” said head coach Kim Lewellen. “This group was able to step up to that challenge. I am very proud of how they handled themselves.”

Siyun Liu was the Deacs’ top finisher, ending the tournament as the individual runner-up at 3-under after a final round 71.

Another freshman, Rachel Kuehn, was T-10th at 2-over after a final round 71 while Letizia Bagnoli shot a final round 72 to finish T-17th at 5-over and Emilia Migliaccio rounded out the lineup with a 78 to finish T-23rd at 7-over.

The Deacons return to action Oct. 11-13 with the Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C.
