ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. – Sophomore Kara McNultycarded the second-lowest round in school history and the Gettysburg College women’s golf team tied its lowest round ever to take the lead on the opening day of the 2012 Centennial Conference Championship at the Hanover Country Club.
Gettysburg shot a 343 on the par-72, 5,805-yard course to tie its program record set at the 2008 Dickinson College Fall Invitational. The team score was also eight strokes better than the previous conference tournament low notched by Muhlenberg College in 2007.
The Bullets will enter Sunday’s final round with an 11-stroke lead over McDaniel College (354). Susquehanna University ranked third at 397 followed by Ursinus College (428) and Muhlenberg College (350). The largest deficit ever overcome in the tournament was eight strokes in the 2008 event won by Gettysburg.
McNulty posted a career-best 78 to finish the day with a five-stroke lead over McDaniel’s Morgan Koopman for the top spot. It was the second-lowest round in school history, trailing only 2008 graduate Merrill Fortier’s 76 posted at the 2004 Dickinson Fall Invitational. McNulty’s round is also the first sub-80 score at Gettysburg since Fortier put up a 79 at the Kutztown University Fall Invitational to open the 2005 season.
Freshman Lauren Sobotka turned in a strong showing in her Centennial debut tying for third with Swarthmore College’s Amanda Beebe with an 85.
