The UCF women’s golf team concluded its fall tournament schedule with a 16th-place finish at the Landfall Traditional in Wilmington, North Carolina, Sunday.
The 18-team tournament boasted five universities in the NCAA’s top-25 rankings.
Junior Ashley Holder went into the three-day event hoping to defend her first-place finish from last season but fell one stroke short as she carded a 4-under par to tie for second place.
Holder has led the Knights in scoring in each of their four events this season. She is currently ranked the No. 28 player in the NCAA, according to GolfStat.com, and the No. 66 amateur golfer in the world, according to World Amateur Golf Ranking.
Junior Johanna Larsson finished 15-over par to tie for 65th, sophomore Laura Sojo carded 18 over for a sole 76th, junior Ayaka Nakayama tied for 77th with a 19 over and Erica Stoner rounded out the 96-player event at 91st with a 23 over.
The Knights swing back into action Feb. 1 at the Florida Challenge to open the second half of their season. They will host their annual UCF Challenge Feb. 7 through Feb. 9 at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando.
