NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Led by Katelyn Dunstan's individual title, the Belmont women's golf team finished in fourth place at this week's Town and Country Invitational hosted by Tennessee State at Nashville's McCabe Golf Course.
Dunstan, a sophomore from Little Rock, Arkansas, captured her first career individual title as she tied for the top spot with Troy's Nicole Lorup and ShaeBug Scarberry. Entering the final round with a share of the lead, Katelyn carded a one-over par 71 on Tuesday to finish the event with a 36-hole score of 140.
It's the second individual title for the program this season and the 12th overall in Belmont women's golf history. Last month, senior Julia Nittoli won medalist honors at the Morehead State/Greenbrier Invitational.
"It means a lot to me to get this victory," said Dunstan. "It was a goal of mine to win a title during my time at Belmont and to get it as a sophomore is pretty special."
For the fall season, Dunstan had three top-10 finishes in four events. She tied for ninth at Morehead State in September and tied for fourth place at Arkansas State two weeks ago.
As the team, Belmont shot a 12-over par 292 to move up a spot and finish alone in fourth place at 587. Troy captured the team title with a score of 566, while Lipscomb placed second at 580, with Austin Peay in third at 584.
Two other Bruins finished among the top-25. Sophomore Cameron Fish posted her second straight top-10 finish as she shot a two-over par 72 to finish in a tie for sixth place at 145. Her sixth place finish is career best for the native of Panama City Beach, Florida.
Junior Maribeth Peevy shot a one-over par 72 to finish in a tie for 20th place at 149. It was her first top-20 finish of the season.
Freshman Lily Gulley competed as an individual and finished in a tie for 29th place at 152.
This tournament wraps up the fall season for the women's golf team. In four events, the squad posted three top-five finishes, including a second place showing at Morehead State, and two golfers earned individual titles.
