Bits and Pieces from the end-of-the-season:

Frosh Nicole Petrocchi eyes her shot heading to towards the flag at Skippack

– Junior Lauren Sobotka (North Caldwell, N.J./Mt. St. Dominic Academy) and freshman Nicole Petrocchi (Whitehouse Station, N.J./Hunterdon Central) each posted career lows as the Gettysburg College women's golf team faced off with Ursinus College at the Skippack Golf Club on Friday.

A late addition to the schedule, the round was added to ensure all the teams in the Centennial Conference met the minimum standard for the automatic qualifier to the NCAA Division III Championship. As the conference champion, Gettysburg would receive the AQ, but the ultimate decision now rests with the NCAA. Official announcement of the national field will take place Monday, May 5, at 6 p.m. on

Gettysburg posted a team score of 362 to easily out-distance Ursinus at 457. Sobotka, the runner-up at last weekend's conference championship, posted a nine-over 81 to top her previous collegiate best by one stroke. Petrocchi shaved two strokes off her personal best with an 85.

Freshman Lynn Hatcher (Easton, Md./St. James School) and sophomore Kate Schwartz (Laureldale, Pa./North Warren Regional (N.J.)) each scored 98 to round out the lineup.

 Senior Kara McNulty (Flemington, N.J./Hunterdon Central) was selected to the Capital One Academic All-District Women's At-Large First Team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and announced on Thursday, May 15.

McNulty is the first Gettysburg College women's golfer to earn Academic All-District laurels. As a first-team honoree, she is now eligible for the Academic All-America Team which will be announced on June 3.

An economics major, McNulty sported a 3.65 GPA heading into her final semester. She stands as the most decorated golfer in program history with 17 individual championships, including three Centennial Conference titles. She was named CC Player of the Year in each of the last three seasons and she was a four-time all-conference pick.

McNulty set the program record with an 80.8 scoring average this season. She set school and conference marks with eight individual championships, including her third consecutive conference title. She fired a career-low 77 on the final day of the conference tournament to win the championship by one stroke.

McNulty holds Gettysburg's career record for scoring average at 82.57. She has finished among the top five in all but two of her 37 career events played.

McNulty is a three-time All-American Scholar as selected by the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA). She is also a member of the economics honor society.

The senior captain led Gettysburg to its fourth consecutive Centennial Conference title this spring. The Bullets qualified for the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship for the first time in program history and are currently competing in the event in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.
