Gettysburg won its third consecutive event of the spring.

Senior Kara McNulty (Flemington, N.J./Hunterdon Central) and the Gettysburg College women's golf team continued their outstanding play this season with dominant efforts at the Stevenson University Invitational held at Piney Branch Golf Club over the weekend.

Gettysburg won its third consecutive event and sixth overall this season by leaving the rest of the field in the rear-view mirror. The Bullets carded a 697 during the two-day tournament, 50 strokes ahead of runner-up Bridgewater (Va.) College. Gettysburg posted its second-lowest team score of the season with a 340 on Saturday before finishing at 357 on Sunday.

McNulty steered the team once again, extending her own school record and breaking the Centennial Conference mark with her seventh tournament victory of the season. The senior logged two birdies on the par-71, 5,801-yard course on the opening day en route to a 79, marking her fifth round in the 70s this season. McNulty capped the tournament with an 81 and finished 11 strokes ahead of runner-up Marin Warring (171) of Bridgewater.

The victory was McNulty's 15 career title, extending her own school record. She broke the season wins record previously set by McDaniel College's Kelly Cramp in 2005.

McNulty had plenty of company at the top of the leaderboard as junior Lauren Sobotka (North Caldwell, N.J./Mount St. Dominic Academy) and freshmen Nicole Petrocchi(Whitehouse Station, N.J./Hunterdon Central) and Sarah Hansen (Cumberland, Maine/Greely) each finished in the top 10 for the third consecutive tournament. Sobotka recorded her lowest round of the season on Saturday with an 84 and closed with an 88 on Sunday to secure third place. Petrocchi posted an 87 on day one and a 95 on day two to finished tied with Amanda Beebe of Swarthmore College for sixth overall, while Hansen finished two strokes back in a tie for eighth with 184 (90-94).
