Dogs Make Final Preparations for Low Country Intercollegiate

Charleston, S.C. – The Citadel golf team makes final preparations for its fourth tournament of the spring season when they head to Hilton Head, S.C. for the Low Country Intercollegiate on Sunday. The 36-hole event begins on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at the par-72, 5,853-yard South Course at Moss Creek Golf Club.

It marks the fourth straight season that the Bulldogs have competed at the event, hosted by Wofford College.

It is the Bulldogs first tournament since March 10th, when they fired a final round 360 to place 12th at the Spider Invitational held at the St. James Plantation. The Bulldogs were paced by the tandem of Alanna-Jean Keith (261, +45) and Erica Pellegrini (263, +47), who placed among the top 50 individuals in the tournament.

Keith followed scores of 88 and 83 with a final round 90 to put herself in a three-way tie for 43rd, alongside Winthrop's Katie Bolline and Allison Lee. Meanwhile, Pellegrini wrapped up the tournament with rounds of 88, 84 and 91, tying USC Upstate's Amanda Hall and Brittany Lowe for 47th.

The Citadel's freshmen trio of Devin Lowe (278, +62), TaKima Butler (283, +67) and Kellie Anderson (293, +77) rounded out the remaining individuals.

While Lowe took away a 58th place showing, it was Butler's final round 87 that brought home lowest score for the Dogs, moving her to 61st. Anderson capped off a three-day showing with a 97, putting her in 62nd.
