JONESBORO, Ark. – The Austin Peay State University women’s golf team competed in the 2023 Lady Red Wolves Classic over on Monday and Tuesday. The team came in sixth in the two-day tournament, led by fifth place individual finisher, junior Erica Scutt.
This is the fourth time the Governors have played in the Lady Red Wolves Classic, having three consecutive team wins at the tournament since the 2019-2020 season. The tournament was cancelled for the 2020-2021 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While their streak came to an end this year, APSU competed well in the field of 16 teams and 15 individual competitors. The Governors were tied with Morehead State University for seventh place after the initial two rounds, with a one shot lead on fellow ASUN team, the University of Central Arkansas.
APSU moved up a spot in the final round for their sixth place final standing and led the tournament in par-threes thanks in part to efforts by Scutt and junior Kaley Campbell.
APSU shot a 306 in the opening round, followed by two five-over 293s in the last two rounds, earning a combined total 28-over 892. This landed the Governors ahead of multiple ASUN teams, including two strokes over Eastern Kentucky University, six strokes over Central Arkansas and 17 strokes over the University of North Alabama. They also led rival Murray University by 34 shots.
Finishing fifth on the leaderboard, Scutt also came in third for par-four scoring and seventh in eagles. Scutt shot rounds consisting of a three-over 75, a three-under 69 and a final even par at 72.
Campbell tied for 21st in the tournament with a five-over 77 and a three-over 75 on Monday, with a one-under 72 to wrap up with the best round of the day on Tuesday.
