TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Notre Dame women’s golf team carded a final round 304 to finish seventh at the Florida State Match-Up (290-290-304=884) in its first tournament of the spring season, which was played at the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course (Par 72/6,212 yards).
“We got solid play by Emma and Abby,” head coach Susan Holt said. “We just need to clean things up here and there and getting out and playing more now will help with that. We have lots of positives to take from this event and we just have to keep improving.”
