AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - The Auburn women’s golf team finished the Blessings Collegiate Invitational seventh overall with two players in the top-10.

Juniors Kaleigh Telfer and Julie McCarthy tied for ninth at 5-over par. 

In the third round, Telfer scored a team-best of 72 and was 1-under on the back nine. McCarthy had 11 birdies for the week, tying her for 10th overall. Mychael O’Berry earned a spot in the top-20 with her season debut. She shot a 77 and finished no. 18 on the leaderboard.

The Tigers finished seventh overall and carded a 304 with 14 birdies between the five players. 

“Solid play by Telf, Julie and Mychael,” Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen said. “Considering all of our circumstances with COVID, I am pleased with the results. The Blessings certainly exposes a player’s weaknesses, so we will have specific things to work on in preparation for our next tournament.”

Auburn's next match is Monday, Oct. 19 at The Ally at Old Waverly. The three-day event takes place in West Point, Mississippi and will feature all 14 SEC teams.
