PHOENIX, Md. – Bethune-Cookman junior women’s golfer Jennifer Hide shot a 4-over 148 in collecting a runner-up finish for the Daytona campus at the Tignanelli Towson Invitational on Monday, hosted by Towson University at the Towson Golf & Country Club in Phoenix, Md.

As a team, Bethune-Cookman finished third in the field with scores of 314 and 311 for the tournament. The total for Bethune-Cookman equaled +49, 625 throughout the par-72 course (6,139 yards).

B-CU Director of Golf Loritz “Scooter” Clark was happy with the results from the season-opening tournament, especially considering B-CU was the only team fielding just four individuals into the scoring.

Hide, a junior from Norfolk, England, tied for the lead after Sunday’s opening round 74. She fired another 2-over 74 Monday, giving her a 6-over 150 score for the event. It was her first runner-up appearance as a Wildcat, and her lowest round scores since last year’s 74 in the first and second rounds of the SCSU Bulldog Invitational (Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2012).

Fellow junior Andrea Orozco (Cancun, Mexico) carded a second round 8-over 80, misfiring on some shots early-on in Monday’s play. Orozco finished the event tied for eighth, registering scores of 74 and 80 for a 10-over 154 finish.

Also factoring into the B-CU scoring was junior Patrizia Trevisan, bouncing back from an opening round 82 to fire a second round 4-over 76.

Altogether, the Leopoldsdorf, Austria native carried a 14-over 158 to finish tied for 16th in the field. Senior Marie Bergelin was the final golfer for the Wildcats, finishing the tournament with an 84-81=165 scorecard. Delaware (308-306=614, +38) was the overall team winner, followed by last year’s champion St. John’s (312-310=622, +46).

The Red Storm’s Jennifer Neville (75-72=147, +3) took the individual trophy in the tournament.

The two-day event featured a 15-team field including Central Connecticut State, Delaware, Delaware State, Fairfield, Fairleigh Dickinson, Hampton, Hartford, Hofstra, Long Island, Longwood, St. Francis, Quinnipiac, St. John’s and host-Towson.
