NEW CASTLE, Pa. - Five members of The College of Wooster women's golf team placed in the top-10, and the Fighting Scots comfortably won Westminster College's Fall Invitational with a 327 on Saturday afternoon at Avalon Field Club.

Junior Lilly Dunning shot a 5-over-par 77 to finish as the runner-up, and she was one stroke off her collegiate best. Classmate Megan Gronau fired a season-low 79 and tied for fourth-place. Sophomore Meghan Wright finished one stroke off her collegiate best, and she tied for eighth-place at 85. The top-10 showing marked Wright's first of her collegiate career.

Senior Hannah Appleman and sophomore Kayla Audette, who was playing as an individual, carded 86s and tied for 10th-place. Senior Kaci Carpenter's 88 landed her in a tie for 14th-place.

Malone University and Westminster both shot a 341. The Titans' Erika Hoover shot a 2-over-par 74 to claim the medalist honor.

Of note, the win marked the program's fourth over the last two seasons.
