Trevisan Leads B-CU Women to Gary Freeman Invite Title
ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - Sophomore Patrizia Trevisan scored a two-round total of one-over-par 145 to help the Bethune-Cookman Women's Golf team sweep individual and team titles at the B-CU Gary Freeman Spring Invitational on Monday afternoon. The event was hosted by Bethune-Cookman at the Halifax Plantation Golf Club in Ormond Beach, Fla.
In their spring debut, the Wildcats women's team was forced to alter its tee times due to weather. Frost covered much of the Halifax Plantation playing surface during the early morning hours on Sunday, causing the men's field to delay its start for almost 30 minutes. Thus, the women were delayed in their start. Play was suspended Sunday evening on account of darkness, and resumed Monday at 9 a.m.
Seemingly unaffected by the delays was B-CU's Patrizia Trevisan, a native of Leopololsdorf, Austria, as she shot even-par in her opening round. She followed that with a one-over round to conclude the tournament. Trevisan shot an eagle-two in her opening round on the 15th hole, followed by three consecutive pars to close out her opening 18 holes of play. She finished the weekend with just seven bogeys across 36 holes.
"I felt good out there yesterday and today despite the cold weather," said Trevisan after staking claim to her second individual tournament title of the 2012-13 campaign. "The course had difficult pin locations, but I was able to hit it close and putt well. That was really what helped me."
Orozco, a sophomore from Cancun, Mexico, finished tied for third in the individual standings as she fired off a two-round total of 15-over-par 189 on a very difficult course with weather distractions all weekend.
Florida Atlantic's Anna Wiklund finished with an identical score after rounds of 78 and 81, respectively.
B-CU junior Marie Bergelin was tied for eighth as she fired an opening round 81, and finished with an 83 in her following round to register a score of 164 for the event. Teammate Vanessa Adarme shot 180, and Hide fired a 10-over 82 in her only round of the weekend.
Hide, a sophomore from Norfolk, England, played just a single round before withdrawing due to an injury. She will have surgery on her arm in the near future, while her spring season is to be cut short. An update on her status will be announced following her surgery.
Northern Illinois was second in the final team count, using a score of 651, followed by FAU (654), Towson (671), Hampton (695) and Savannah State (761).
NIU's Allie Parthie was the tournament runner-up with a scorecard of 13-over-par 157. Playing as an individual, Laval Universitie member Alexandra Pelletier rounded out the top five - behind Orozco and Wiklund, firing a 16-over-par 160.
Named after legendary golf coach Dr. Gary Freeman, the annual event was started by current head coach Loritz "Scooter" Clark to pay tribute to a man that was the face of the B-CU golf program for many years before retiring and eventually passing away just under two years ago.
The Wildcats head back on the course again when traveling to the Butler Invitational taking place March 10-12 in Jacksonville, Fla.
