The 13th-ranked Tars were the only non-Division I team in the field of 14 and were in the mix near the top of the leaderboard the entire weekend. Rollins turned in scores of 293-209 the first day and closed with a 25-over 313 to finish 51-over for the event.
Cal State Fullerton won at 35-over, followed by runner-up Seattle (+35) and third place Albany (+40). Host Boston College was fourth (+43) while Fairleigh Dickinson and Quinnipiac tied for fifth at 49-over.
"Being the first event of the year, this was a great opportunity to gauge where we are and what we need to work on," said Rollins Director of Golf and women's head coach Julie Garner. "The first round gave us a glimpse of the level we are capable of achieving when we keep the ball in position off the tee and work on our approach shots. The final two rounds showed just how important it is to avoid three-putts and anything higher than a bogey."
Jennifer Jung had a big start to her sophomore season, tying for 12th at 11-over for the tournament. She posted scores of 74-75 on the first day and came back with a solid 78 on Tuesday.
Seher Atwal used a birdie on No. 18 to tie for 16th, a shot back of Jung at 12-over. The senior carded rounds of 73-78-77 at BC's Blue Hill Country Club.
Lara van Staden and Selin Timur were both 15-over and tied for 24th. Van Staden posted her career low round of 72 to start and came back with scores of 80-79 to finish. Timur shot rounds of 74-77-80. Freshman YeonJoo Kim finished strong and tied for 39th at 19-over, posting 77-79-79.
Katharina Hesse played as an individual and took 54th in the field, shooting 82-82-76 to finish 24-over.
After a quick trip home, Rollins is back in New England for the 2019 Princeton Invitational Sept. 28-29 in Princeton, N.J.
"Now that we have that tournament under our belt," added Garner, "it's time to look at our stats and develop a game plan for each player's improvement. Onward and upward! Next stop Princeton."
