NINETY-SIX, S.C. — The High Point University women’s golf team lost to top-seeded Campbell University 3-1-1 in the semifinals of the Big South Women’s Golf Championships on Saturday at The Patriot Golf Course at Grand Harbor.
The Panthers qualified for the match play portion of the tournament by finishing fourth in stroke play.
Samantha Vodry was the lone Panther credited with a win on the day as she was ahead in her match with three holes to play when Campbell clinched the deciding point and play was stopped. Vynie Chen also had her match halted prematurely after 15 holes and was all square with Campbell’s top golfer and No. 66-ranked golfer in the country.
Sarah Kahn, Danielle Suh, and Ashley Chalmers each fell to their Fighting Camel opponents, with Suh’s match lasting the longest at 17 holes.
Vodry leaves High Point after five years with multiple records, including the most eagles, birdies, rounds of par or better, and victories in any Panther’s career. She finished her career with 10 eagles to be the only Panther in double digits and carded 318 birdies to be the only golfer in program history with a total of 300 and just the second golfer in HPU’s history, men’s or women’s, to join the 300-birdie club.
