Coastal Carolina Places Sixth Behind Freshmen Finish

   NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Led by freshmen Tamara Page-Jones and Natalie Cruse, Coastal Carolina University's women's golf team fired a school record 306 on the final day of the Unlimited Potential/Baytree Invitational to jump into sixth place among the 31 participating teams.

Page-Jones, a native of Gourveau, France, finished the tournament in 10th place with 230 after a final round 73. Surry, England's Cruse completed the tourney in a tie for 52nd place with a final round 74.

The Lady Chanticleers' 303 over the final 18 holes allowed the squad to move up from the 10th place position that it had held entering the final round. The 303 surpassed the previous 18-hole record of 309 set during the Cougar Fall Invitational on September 12, 1999.
