Day Two at Glade Springs Washed Out by Rain

DANIELS – The West Virginia Wesleyan men's and women's golf teams were rained out of the final round action on Tuesday at the Glade Springs Intercollegiate Tournament.

The washout ended with the Wesleyan women in second place behind tourney champion Charleston, while the men placed 14th in the 18-school field.

"We went out today with intentions of getting it in," head coach J.D. Lamm said. "We were only able to get two holes in before the storms came."

Wesleyan's team of total of 314 on the women's side, which ended up just being a one-round event, was a mere five strokes behind Charleston. 

The trio of Beverly Toothman, Whitney Milhoan and Sandra Brink all fired six-over par 78's to lead the Lady Bobcat pack.

Kylie Day was right behind with a solid round of 80.

Freshman Zach Champman led the men's team with a consistent 76-76 pair of rounds (the men completed two rounds, playing 36 holes on Monday). He placed 14th in the 100-golfer field.

Teammate Nick West, a returning All-MEC Honorable Mention player, placed 22nd with a 76-78 set of rounds.  

Charleston also won the men's side, outdistancing runner-up Davis & Elkins by 14 shots.

"I am really proud of the way our team came out and competed," Lamm said. "Three of the four scores that counted on the women's side were freshmen. That is a strong statement about our future."

The women's team is back in action this Sunday at the two-day Michael Corbett Classic in Erie, Pa.

The men return to action Monday at Bluefield, Va. in the one-day, two-round Battle of the Two Virginias.
