Bulls finish eighth at Tar Heel Tourney

It seemed fitting a team from North Carolina won the Franklin Street Trust/Tar Heel Invitational this past weekend in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Except the winning team wore a darker shade of blue.

The Duke women’s golf team posted a total of 894, outdistancing second-place North Carolina by 17 strokes, to win the tournament held at the Finley golf course. South Florida finished eighth, 49 strokes off the pace.

The Bulls, who reached the NCAA Tournament last season, shot a final-round 316 for a 54-hole total of 943.

Fany Schaeffer led the Bulls with a 14-over par 230, good enough for 16th place. Duke’s Kristina Engstrom used a final-round low of 70 to capture the individual crown.
