No. 4 South Carolina Defeats No. 6 San Jose State, Ends Cactus Cup 2-1 – University of South Carolina Athletics

PHOENIX, Ariz. – No. 4 South Carolina was victorious in its final match of the Cactus Cup on Tuesday. The Gamecocks took down No. 6 San Jose State, 3.5-2.5. Freshman Mia Sandtorv Lussand came through in the clutch again, winning on the 18th hole to earn a 1-up victory and seal the team win as well.

Sandtorv Lussand went 1-0-2 in three matches this week. She sealed the victory for the team yesterday over No. 11 Arizona State thanks to a birdie on the 18th hole to tie her match and earn a half point for the team.

The Gamecocks also got wins today from graduate transfer Katherine Muzi and sophomore All-American Hannah Darling. Muzi was dominant with a 5&4 win and Darling won 2&1, leading for the final seven holes thanks to a birdie at the 12th. Fellow sophomore All-American Louise Rydqvist earned a half point in her match. After trailing by one late, she picked up a victory at the 16th hole to tie things up again.

South Carolina has one more stroke play event coming up next weekend as it looks to defend its title at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic (March 24-26). The Gamecocks will then finish the regular season with another all-match play event again returning to the Wolfpack Match Play (April 3-4), hosted by NC State. Carolina will also look to defend the team title there as well.
