Pack Nabs Season-High Finish at Collegiate Invitational

GUADALAJARA, Mexico – The NC State women’s golf team kicked off its 2023 spring slate this week with a season-best fifth-place finish in the Collegiate Invitational held at Guadalajara Country Club. The Pack finished with a 54-hole score of 896 (+32), 24 shots back of team-champion Baylor who finished ten shots ahead of runner-up Florida State at 872 (+8).
NC State had a trio of golfers end the two-day event in a tie for 13th place, with freshman Vania Simont, senior Natalie Armbruester, and sophomore Lauren Olivares Leon each posting a three-round total of 223 (+7).
Simont and Olivares Leon’s weeks were highlighted by their second rounds, with Simont firing a two-under 70 and Olivares Leon following just behind with a one-under par round of 71, while consistency was the key for Armbruester as she was the only member of the Wolfpack to not post a score higher than 76 over three rounds of play.
NC State’s best round of the week came from Isabel Amezcua, who closed with a three-under 69 on Monday. Amezcua finished in a tie for 33rd place on the week, while Inja Fric rounded of the Pack’s team performance with a three-day score of 241 (+25) resulting in a 58th-place finish. Jaclyn Kenzel additionally competed for the Pack as an individual, finishing in 57th place at 240 (+24).
NC State will now shift its focus to the ICON Invitational hosted by Houston on Feb. 27-28.
