Women's golf finishes 2nd in SEC championships

Dreher registers 4th-best score among all competitors

The regular season has come to a close for many spring sports, and it’s SEC championship time for several South Carolina teams.

Women’s golf was one of the most successful units over the weekend, as the Gamecocks finished in second place at the conference championships with a three-round total score of 890, or 26 over par. Entering the weekend, the Gamecocks were ranked sixth nationally.

On Sunday’s 290-stroke round for the team, junior Justine Dreher registered the best score of any South Carolina golfer, turning in a one-under 71. Her two-over 218 on the weekend landed in fourth place individually.

The next move for the Gamecocks will be the NCAA regionals, where they will compete in either Florida, Oklahoma or Washington.
