CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Freshman Gaby Amos carded her first collegiate round under par (71, 1-under) on Sunday for the South Carolina women’s golf team, which earned an 11th-place finish (40-over) at the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational. The Gamecocks posted a 7-over (295) in the final round of three-day tournament.

Amos, who finished in a tie for 64th with a final score of 16-over, saw a strong finish to her weekend after tallying four birdies. The Gainesville, Fla., native made the turn at 1-over after birdies on No. 13 and 18, and she posted an even (35) over her final nine holes. Amos was one of just 12 golfers to record a round under par on Sunday.

Sarah Schmelzel fired a 3-over (75) in the final round, as she finished the tournament in a tie for 27th (7-over). The South Carolina senior, who totaled four birdies throughout the tournament, birdied No. 5 and ended her round even over her final five holes.

A pair of Gamecocks, junior Katelyn Dambaugh and sophomore Ainhoe Olarra, both notched 39th-place finishes after recording overall scores of 10-over. Olarra turned in her best performance of the weekend on Sunday, carding a 1-over (73), while Dambaugh posted a 4-over (76).

South Carolina Head Coach Kalen Anderson

We got off to a tough start today, but the team battled back. I’m very proud of Gaby’s performance today, and Ainhoe also put up a solid round. The bottom half of our lineup stepped up today.

The Gamecocks return to action on Friday, Oct. 23 at the Landfall Tradition for their final tournament of the fall season. The three-day event in Wilmington, N.C. will take place at the Pete Dye Course.
