The NC State women’s golf team successfully defended its title at the Sir Pizza Terrapin Challenge and sophomore Lindsay McGetrick, competing as an individual, captured medalist honors. The two-day, 54-hole event was held at the par-72, 6,278-yard Shula’s Golf Club.
NC State fired a three-round total of 10-over 874, including 4-under 284 in Tuesday’s closing round. The Pack was 12 strokes better than second place Florida International. The team crown was NC State’s 11th in program history and its fourth since 2011.
The Wolfpack swept the top three spots on the individual leader board. McGetrick set a 54-hole personal best with a three round tally of 4-under 212 in her first collegiate win.
