Moir's powerful weekend powers Pios Women's Golf to third-place finish at Rhodes

Memphis, Tenn. – Led by sophomore Meredith Moir, the Transylvania women's golf team posted a third-place finish at the Rhodes Classic golf tournament on Monday.

Moir shot consecutive rounds of 74 on Sunday and Monday to finish atop the Transy leaderboard with a two-day score of 148, good for third on the individual leaderboard. Moir was recognized for her outstanding performance by making the Rhodes Classic All-Tournament Team.

"Our team is very proud of Meredith Moir for her finish and All-Tournament award," commented head coach Tyrus York after the tournament concluded. "Her play has been a great example for our team and she is getting better and better."

Moir was not the only Pioneer with a solid weekend as fellow sophomore Jenna Soderling finished second on the Transylvania docket with a two-day score of 157, placing her in the top-11 of a 34-player field.

It was also a tremendous day for junior Keeley Goff, who shot a round two 82, the best single-round score of her career. Goff finished with a two-day score of 172. Freshman Lexie Lamar finished one stroke back of Goff, and junior Lindsay Bloom improved upon her round one score by four strokes to finish a strong tournament showing.

The second tournament of the year for the Transy women's golf contingent proved to be one of instant growth and improvement as the Pios move further into their fall journey.

"Our team is continuing to improve and held up well for the second week in a row against the best teams in the nation," analyzed York. "We are looking forward to our conference preview next week to see how we fare against our conference rivals."

The next tournament for the Pioneers is the Rose-Hulman Invitational in Terre Haute, Indiana, hosted by Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponent Rose-Hulman. The Pioneers tee off in Terre Haute before returning home in two weekends to host a tournament at Keene Run in nearby Nicholasville, Kentucky.
