Disqualification blow for Katy
but Lynn Univ win team title

Despite the most unfortunate disqualification of Katy McNicoll's first-round score of 74, Lynn University’s women’s golf team earned its first victory of the season after claiming first place at the NIU Springlake Invitational at Sebring, Florida.
Katy's team-mate Megan Mangone earned medalist honours for the second time in her career while Maha Maddioui finished second.
Katy, pictured right by Cal Carson Golf Agency, from Carnoustie, had a 74 in the first round but her marker failed to put a score opposite one hole, although it would seem that she had put 74 in for a total.
Katy signed her card and handed it in to the Recorder without noticing the slip.
She had a 73 in the second round and her total of 147 would have been good enough to finish joint second - a reminder to Katy (and all players) that she should check EVERY scorecard carefully before signing it and handing it in.
Four of the Fighting Knights finished in the top-10 led by Mangone. The senior from Windham, N.H. is enjoying a career year in her final season with the Blue & White. Mangone has notched six consecutive top-10 finishes, including two tournament wins. She fired a second round 75 to pull out the one-stroke victory over Haddioui.
Lynn University (599) recorded its lowest 36-hole score of the season in recording a 297 team score. The Blue & White finished 18-strokes ahead of Florida Gulf Coast (617) while Methodist (641) took third.
The Knights return to action on Monday, March 9, at the Peggy Kirk Bell in Winter Park, Florida.
