The Dalton State College women's golf team took home a first-place finish and Isabel Rijos finished as the low medalist as their Roadrunner Women's Invitational concluded on Tuesday at Nob North Golf Course.

The Lady Roadrunners were tied for the lead on Monday after the second day of play but finished as the outright leader with a score of 917 (+53 over par). The University of the Cumberlands finished second with 920 (+56).

Rijos finished with a score of 223 (+7). Dalton State's Haejin Choe finished second with a score of 226 (+10).

"It's a good feeling right now," Dalton State coach Jim McGrew said. "I'm extremely proud of the girls, since the competition was tight the whole way. It is one of the toughest courses we play, and you can't take a hole off. It really separates the good teams from the great ones."

Dalton State finishes the fall season with two tournament wins after also winning the Thomas University Fall Invitational earlier this month in Valdosta.

"It's a great way to end the semester," McGrew said. "You want to win at home, and so there's a little extra pressure. I'm so happy they were able to do that with a lot of loved ones watching. They kind of know where they are at now."

Dalton State's Cameron Daniel finished tied for sixth with a score of 231 (+15), while Sydney Herman finished tied for 10th with a score of 233 (+17). Hannah Gasaway and Katelyn Skiffen were tied for 12th with a score of 235 (+19), and Megan Donahue was tied for 35th with a score of 246 (+30).

"I'm so excited about this group because as a team they all played really well and their team chemistry is there," McGrew said. "Obviously, they played well individually as well."
