Annarummo matches program-low with 74 to post program-best third place finish as Skyhawks post program-low team scores

NEW LONDON, N.H. (October 1, 2019) -  The Stonehill College women's golf team enjoyed its best round in the program's three-year history to post its highest team finish with a second place showing at the 2019 Penmen Fall Invitational, hosted by Southern New Hampshire University, on the 5,912-yard, par-72 layout at Lake Sunapee Country Club today.

Sophomore Alexis Annarummo matched the program-record low round with her career-best 74 today to finish with a two-day score of 156 (82-74) for a program-best third place individual finish. She led a program-best three rounds in the 70s today as Stonehill posted a program-record 310 team score to finish the two day event with a program-low 632 team score to finish just four shots behind event winners Franklin Pierce University (318-310) as the Skyhawks matched the Ravens second round team score. Franklin Pierce was led by individual medalist Jinnapat Rittawee, who finished seven shots ahead of the field with her three-over-par two day score of 147 (76-71) after scoring one under par today.

Annarummo finished tied for third overall, just two strokes behind Amanda Barone (79-75=154) from Post University for second overall, marking her first career top-five finish and fourth top ten. Annarummo was one-under-par over her first four holes with a pair of birdies on the par-4 first and par-3 fourth, before finishing the front nine at one-over-par 37. She followed that up with eight pars and just one bogey on the back nine to finish her two-over-par 74, which matched classmate Emma Beaulieu's 74 in the first round of the 2018 Penmen Columbus Day Invitational, who recorded the program's only other top five finish over its young three-year history.
