May 11, 2012

DSC 8186Angola, Ind. - DePauw shot a final round 314, but it wasn't enough to keep pace with Methodist as the Monarchs shot a 310 and finished six strokes ahead of the Tigers for their 13th straight Division III title.

The Tigers entered the fourth and final round with a two-shot deficit to Methodist and fell behind by double-digit strokes early before tying the match in the closing holes.

Kelsey Smith (pictured) (So., Indianapolis, Ind./Hamilton Southeastern) shot a final round 73 and was two-under through 15 and finished the Championships tied for ninth with a 309. She moved up from 24th at the beginning of the day.

Taylor Beaty (Sr., Decatur, Ind./DeKalb) finished in a tie for 14th at 311 after shooting an 83 today. Paige Gooch (So., Fort Mitchell, Ky./Beechwood) shot an 80 in the final round and finished the tournament with a 312 and tied for 17th.

Abby Dickey (So., Elk Grove Village, Ill./St. Viator) shot her second straight 80 and finished in a tie for 42nd with a 321, while Kelly Gaughan (Sr., Cincinnati, Ohio/McAuley) finished in a tie for 48th after shooting 81 in the final round for a 323.

Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Catherine Wagner won the individual title with a 302.

The second-place finish was DePauw's third in program history and marked the ninth time in 11 appearances that the Tigers finished in the top five. The six-stroke margin was the second-closest finish in the 13-year history of the Division III Championships.
