Valdosta, GA - The No. 15 Virginia women's golf team finished sixth in the 18-team Kinderlou Forest Challenge in Valdosta, Ga., the team's first spring tournament. Virginia finished at 32-over 908. The Cavaliers posted rounds of 302, 305 and 301 during the two-day event.
Junior Calle Nielson and freshman Brittany Altomare led the Cavaliers with scores of 8-over 227 to tie for 20th overall. Nielson had rounds of 76, 80 and 71 while Altomare shot 75, 76 and 76.
Freshman Nicole Agnello was 32nd overall at 229 while Eleana Collins placed 37th at 231. Whitney Neuhauser was 59th overall at 237.
Tulane took the team title at 13-over 889. The Green Wave's Janine Fellows won medalist honors by shooting 2-under 217. She was the only player to break par during the event.
"We were able to make up some ground during the final round," said head coach Kim Lewellen. "More than anything, we were just happy to get in three solid rounds of play after the challenges we had practicing with the weather the past few weeks."
The Cavaliers return to play next March 12-14 at the LSU/Cleveland Classic in Baton Rouge, La. Virginia won the tournament last season.
