Both Maryland men’s and women’s golf performed well over the weekend in last season competitions.

The women’s team picked up a second-place finish (+2) at the Indiana Invitational, while the men’s team finished in fifth (+11) at the Rutherford Intercollegiate in State College, Pennsylvania.

No. 19 Maryland women’s golf has been on a tear this spring, placing no lower than third across five invitationals and defeating Virginia in its lone match play event. Laura Van Respaille led the Terps this weekend with a three-round score of 218 (+2), while Xiaolin Tian and Patricie Mackova both finished close behind with scores of 219 (+3).

Despite the men finishing 11 over par as a team, William Koras and Dillon Brown each tied for ninth overall individually, each posting an even score of 213.

The men’s and women’s teams each had a rare connection on Sunday as Charlotte Lafourcade scored a hole in one on the 17th at the Pfau Course at Indiana University and Koras tallied a hole in one on the 17th at the Blue Course in State College just hours apart from each other.

Maryland women’s golf now waits to take part in the Big Ten Championship this upcoming weekend in Mainesville, Ohio, while the men finish up their regular season this weekend at the Keppler Invite in Columbus, Ohio.
