Messana Leads Clemson In New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, La. – In her first tournament of the 2016 season, Marisa Messana took advantage of the opportunity and led the way for Clemson at the AllState Sugar Bowl Classic. The Tigers finished 15th overall in a field of 17 with six of the top 13 teams in the country among them. The sophomore finished the tournament with a three-over-par 75 to tie for 21st overall with a four-over-par 220.

Messana’s season-best, one-under-par 71 yesterday highlighted her effort. She finished the tournament with seven birdies, four of which came in yesterday’s round.

Alice Hewson finished the tournament with a pair of birdies in the third round to finish the tournament just three strokes behind Messana to tie for 36th overall. Fellow freshman, Lauren Stephenson recorded four birdies in her final round to finish the tournament just one stroke behind Hewson with a 224, tying for 42nd place.

Sloan Shanahan rounded out the scoring four with her 238 in the tournament.

The Tigers have a month off from competition, as their next tournament is the Briar’s Creek Invitational on March 21 and 22. The tournament is hosted at The Club At Briar’s Creek in John’s Island, South Carolina.
