County Team Member Emily Ogilvy had a fantastic result this week finishing second and helping her American college, the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, to win the team title in the Islander Spring Classic women's golf tournament at Corpus Christi, Texas. Over the 6,100 yrd par 72 course Emily had rounds of 72, 70 and 76 for a two-over-par tally of 218. Emily would have gone close to catching the winner, Camila Sola (Redlands College) but unfortunatelyy had an 8 on her final card. Emily's college Arkansas Little Rock finished first out 16 teams with a two-round total of 899 eight shots ahead of runners-up Redlands.
The results were as follows:

214 Camila Sola (Redlands) 69 71 74.
218 Emily Ogilvy (Arkansas-Little Rock) 72 70 76.
220 Sara Wilkstrom (Arkansas-Little Rock) 69 75 76, Christy Carter (Oral Roberts) 71 74 75.
899 Arkansas-Little Rock.
907 Redlands.
920 Texas A&M Corpus Christi.

What a fantastic result for Emily who over the summer reduced her handicap of 4 to 1. Well done from us all at P&K.
