College CentralCOLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State women's golf team shot 295 Sunday in the final round to claim first-place honors in the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational. The Buckeyes won the tournament with a mark of 886, in front of second-place Kent State (916) and Indiana (924). The event was held at the par-72 University Scarlet Course (6,037 yards) in Columbus.
 
Ohio State sophomore Kristen White (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) tied the tournament record with a mark of 214 to win the individual title. Bethany Overstake of Ohio State also shot a 214 at the event in 1998. White broke a school and course record with a career-low 66 in the first round followed by two rounds of 74. The win marked the second title of her career as she also finished first at the Central District Invitational in February.
 
Teammate Allison Hanna (Jr., Portland, Ore./David Douglas) shot 72 in the final round to finish in second place with a score of 223 (72-79-72). Lindsay Knowlton (So., Toronto, Ontario/Havergal) also had a strong performance as she tied for fourth place at 225 (74-76-75).
 
'Overall, I am very proud of all the players,' Therese Hession, OSU head coach, said. 'It was great to see the players at the fourth, fifth and sixth positions to step up and contribute. They work hard and want to contribute. The win is a good confidence builder heading into Big Tens. It was a solid win at home and we had good scores in the tournament.'
 
The Buckeyes will aim for their second consecutive Big Ten title at the Big Ten Championships April 25-27 in Iowa City, Iowa.
