Women's Golf In Middle Of Pack At Yellow Jacket Invitational

EMU's Brittany McDonaldson (Harrisonburg, VA/Harrisonburg) moved up on the final day of the Yellow Jacket Invitational, being hosted by Randolph-Macon College at the Hollows Golf Club in Montpelier, VA.  She shot an 89 on the second day of the tournament and finished in a tie for 35th place out of 62 women.

McDonaldson carded a 91 (+19) on day one to total a 180 (+36).  The Eastern Mennonite freshman came in 8th out of 15 ODAC participants.

A number of D-I and D-II athletes were on the course from the 13 schools being represented.  Kelsie Carralero of Methodist distanced herself from the pack on day two, firing a one-under-par 71 to finish at 148 (+4).

Sunday's tee times were moved up in an effort to beat the incoming snow and rain.

Next up for the Lady Royals is the Stevenson University Invitational on April 13.  The one-day event will be at the Piney Branch Golf Club in Upperco, MD.
