Senior Yu Xue lead the women’s golf team to a first place finish in the Winthrop University Intercollegiate Championship Sunday afternoon.

Xue shot even par for the tournament — the only player to do so.

The Mountaineers lead by 18 strokes over second place Gardner-Webb after the first round of play, and held serve on Sunday to win by the same number.

Mountaineer players achieved the top three performances of the tournament; with Xue coming in first followed by Senior Rumbidzai Masamvu (+3) and senior Lauren Smith (+4).

Sunday was the team’s first invitational championship win since the Low Country Intercollegiate in March.

App will next travel to Charleston, S.C. October 15 to compete in the Wendy’s Classic at Rivertowne Country Club.
