Carter Shoots One Under To Win Rebel Intercollegiate

OXFORD, Miss. Ole Miss senior Dori Carter captured her first career tournament victory as she won the Rebel Intercollegiate Sunday afternoon after shooting a 71 on the final day from the Country Club of Oxford. 

 

Carter finished the day tied for first place with Linn Gustafsson of Tulane as each player finished the event with a total score of 217, resulting in a sudden death playoff beginning on the fourth hole.

 

After posting a bogey on the fourth hole earlier in the afternoon, Carter sunk a putt from the green to earn a birdie and the tournament championship.  Gustafsson, who shot first between the two, was unable to earn a birdie.  Therefore, Carter needed only to hit her putt to win the event. 

 

She had finished in second place five times in her career prior to Sunday.

 

“It was an unbelievable feeling when I hit my putt and won the tournament,” Carter said.  “I don’t really think it has even hit me yet.  It was also really special to win this tournament at home in front of all the Ole Miss fans.  I hit a really good shot onto the green and then I just trusted my putt.”

 

Carter’s outstanding afternoon helped the Rebels finish in second place with a final score of 901, just 12 strokes off the pace of tournament champion Tulane.  The Green Wave finished with a score of 889. 

 

Junior Sara Grantham finished tied for ninth for the Rebels after posting a final tally of 227.  Freshman Haley Millsap tied for 12th with a score of 228, while fellow freshman Ashley Lance also turned in a top-20 finish with a score of 229 to finish tied for 17th.

 

Andrea Buccilla was tied for 35th with a score of 237, while senior J.J. Flynn placed 66th with a score of 251 after shooting 78 on the final day.

 

“The first thing I want to say is Hotty Toddy,” Ole Miss head coach Michele Drinkard said.  “Our team really needed to play well this weekend heading into the SEC Championships, and I think we accomplished that.”

 

“Dori was spectacular and I am so proud of her winning her first tournament in the fashion that she did,” she added.  “It means so much for her to win it as a senior, at home and in a playoff situation.  I was also glad that we would be able to send our three seniors out in style.”

 

Ole Miss returns to action April 17 when the Rebels travel to Blythewood, S.C., to take part in the SEC Championships.
