CHARLESTON, S.C. – Redshirt freshman Alison Hovatter recorded her lowest career round Tuesday in the final round of the Cougar Classic hosted by Charleston Southern at Yeamans Hall.

Hovatter led Ole Miss on the final day with a 1-over 73. She recorded four birdies on the day on 15, 1, 3 and 4 after starting the day on hole 12.  The Cougar Classic was Hovatter’s first career start.

Florida claimed the title this year shooting a 12-under 852 for the three-day tournament (286-279-287). Individually, the Gators’ Camilla Hedberg won the title, firing a 13-under 203 (69-66-69).

As a team, Ole Miss finished in a tie for 14th out of a field of 24 teams (299-293-300 – 892). The tournament featured 13 ranked teams this season and 10 of the top 15 teams from last season’s NCAA Championship.

“We held on in a strong field, which is not the way we had envisioned the round,” head coach Michele Drinkard said. “We would have liked to have had our strongest round to finish off the tournament, something we will have to work on for our next tournament at the Golfweek Challenge in Vail, Colo.”

Ericka Schneider, who shot a two-over 74 in the final round, recorded Ole Miss’ highest finish of the tournament as she ended the tournament in a tie for 33rdAbby Newton also recorded a two-over 74 in the final round.

“We talk about getting one percent better every day and really felt like Ericka, Abby and Alison got that done today,” Drinkard said.  “We are looking forward to some good practices and our preparation to be better for the next tournament.”


Taelor Rubin posted a 7-over 79 on Tuesday while Haley Sanders ended the day with a 10-over 83 in her final round.

Ole Miss’ next tournament is the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Vail, Colo., Sept. 24-26.  Follow the Rebels through social media on Twitter @OleMissWGolf and on Facebook at Facebook.com/OleMissWGolf.
