CHARLESTON, S.C. - The Ole Miss women's golf team closed out action at the 2011 Cougar Classic in 14th place (305-297-298--900) on Tuesday at Yeamans Hall. Sophomore Alison Hovatter continued her solid play, shooting her third consecutive round of 1-over par 73, giving her a score of 219 for the tournament - a new 54-hole career low.

"Alison played three solid rounds this week for us and showed how much stronger her mind has gotten," said head coach Michele Drinkard.  

Hovatter was the pillar of consistency throughout the course of the tournament and recorded six birdies over the course of the tournament.  Additionally, her three straight rounds of 73 tied her career low round, a feat she accomplished just once heading into the tournament.

 For the second consecutive season, Florida claimed the Cougar Classic title at five-under par (291-287-281--859), just edging out newcomer Clemson (285-282-29--860), in their first tournament as a varsity program. Florida's Anna Young claimed the individual title at 5-under par.

Abby Newton closed the tournament strong firing a 2-over par 74 in her final round, while Stani Schiavone closed with a 3-over par 75. Kathryn Fowler ended her final round at 5-over 77, while Taelor Rubin closed at 4-over 76.

"The team will take a few days off and focus on our academics then start preparing for Tennessee's tournament," said Drinkard. "We need to improve our shots around the green and making more putts inside 10 feet." 

Ole Miss is next in action at the Mercedes-Benz Championship in Knoxville, Tenn. (Sept. 20-22). The tournament will be played at Cherokee Country Club.
