JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Newberry's Taylor Lance and Nabila Inak earned a pair of top-20 finishes as Newberry finished eighth at a Division I event hosted by Butler University in Jacksonville.


The Wolves finished eighth in the nine-team field exclusively made up of Division I opponents. Newberry finished four strokes behind Evansville for seventh place and within 11 shots of a top-five finish.


Lance and Inak led the way for the Wolves. Lance shot up the leaderboard with her best 18 holes of the year, a four-over 76 that saw her make the turn at even par. She improved by 10 strokes over her Wednesday score and to climb from 36th after the opening round into a tie for 19th with an 18-over 162. Deadlocked with Lance was Inak, who struggled on Thursday after an impressive first round.


Two strokes behind Lance and Inak was Annabelle Dallery. She landed in a tie for 25th at 20 strokes over par. Johana Lunackova tied for 43rd 10 shots behind Dallery.


The tournament was won by Stetson's Eilidh Watson, who won the tournament by five strokes and shot an even-par 72 on the final day. She finished at three over playing as an individual. Even without Watson's score, the Hatters won the team competition by 14 shots over second-place High Point.


Newberry returns to action at the Agnes McAmis Memorial April 3 and 4 in the Wolves' final tune-up before the 2017 South Atlantic Conference Women's Golf Championship the following week.
