MAUI, Hawai’i – The Ole Miss women’s golf team saved its best round for last shooting, a 299 en route to a three-day score of 904 (303-302-299) en route to their second consecutive top five finish at the Aunenue Spring Break Classic on Wednesday (March 26). Junior Stani Schiavone led the Ole Miss individuals with a final round of 72, which placed her 11th overall.

Pepperdine won the tournament with a three-day score of 870 (290-287-293—870) and successfully defended their tournament title from a year ago. Additionally, Pepperdine’s Grace Na also defended her title with an 11-under par 270 ( 70-66-69 --205).

“I’m proud of the team this week for playing into another top 5 finish,” said head coach Michele Drinkard. “Each tournament we are continuing to improve, which is timely with our home Rebel Intercollegiate coming up.”

For the second consecutive day, Schiavone led the Ole Miss contingent. The junior shot her best round this season on Wednesday and tied her career-low for 54 holes with her 222 (76-74-72 – 222). Schiavone was the epitome of consistency and tallied three birdies and made par on 12 holes in the final round. For the tournament, Schiavone had 10 birdies including five in the second round.

“It is pretty obvious Stani enjoys the warm weather with another good tournament here at Kapalua and last week at Arizona,” said Drinkard. “Stani's ball striking continues to improve along with her short game, which makes for a lot of birdie opportunities.”

“It was a great experience to play Kapalua this week,” said Schiavone. “It was nice to be able to play in such a beautiful place and playing well was a great feeling.”  

Abby Newton rebounded from a round of 77 on Tuesday to card a 74 in final day action. Newton, who is leading the Rebels this spring with 74.64 stroke average, was 2-over on the back nine today, but regrouped on the front nine and  shot even par which helped her to 16th place.

“This week was a great experience and I enjoyed the opportunity to play in Maui,” said Newton. “I didn’t play as well as I would have liked, but I was able to take a lot of positives from this tournament and I look forward to improving my short game and preparing for the Rebel Intercollegiate next week.”

Maria Toennessen and Alison Hovatter each shot a 5-over par 77 in the final round. Toennessen’s three-day score of 227 is her career-low for 54 holes and her 74 in opening round action was just a stroke shy of her 18-hole career low. The freshman was also a stroke shy of her first collegiate top 20 finish. Hovatter shot her best round of the tournament on the final day, firing a 76.

Taelor Rubin closed the tournament with a round of 5-over par 77, but really rebounded after a tough opening round. The junior played quite well on the back nine, carding a 1-over par to close the tournament.

Kaitlin Voll had an outstanding week in Hawaii and recorded her first top 20 finish of her career, closing the week tied for 16th with a three-day score of 225 (75-75-75—225).

“Individually couldn't be more proud of Katie (Voll),” said Drinkard. “This spring we talked about how you have to play to improve and she is making the most of this opportunity.”

Playing as an individual, Voll lead the field of individuals and recorded two birdies in the final round en route to her 54-hole career low and three consecutive rounds of her 18-hole career low.

“It felt really good to tie for 16th and have my first career top 20 finish,” said Voll. “I’m really proud of myself and the goals I accomplished. I hope to grow a lot of from this experience and have my confidence carry into the next tournaments. I felt different in this tournament than others by truly trusting my process and what my coaches told me.”

Senior Kathryn Fowler also played as an individual and closed the week with a round of 79 for an overall score of 248 (89-80-79—248)

The Rebels will return to the mainland for the lone home tournament, the Rebel Intercollegiate April 4-6.
