Final Results l Golfweek Feature on Strandberg

SIMPSONVILLE, KY. - East Carolina's Julia Strandberg continued her stellar play during her senior season Tuesday afternoon taking home the Wild Eggs Cardinal Cup individual title with a 1-over par 145 in just her fourth career start and helped the Pirates (23-1) record their second-straight top-2 finish of the season.

Strandberg, whose previous career-best finish (third) came last week at the Golfweek Program Challenge, carded a tournament-best 2-under par 70 (36-34) on the final day. To avoid a possible playoff, the Greensboro native birdied two of her final three holes to claim medalist honors over Amanda Baker (N.C. State) and AnnaKarin Ljungstrom (Louisville), who both finished tied for second place.

"I'm very proud of how we performed as a team this week," said head coach Kevin Williams. "This event was a good measuring stick for us early and I am pleased at where we are. We still have some work to do, but overall it is a good start for the program.

"Right now I couldn't be any happier for Julia and what she has accomplished so far this season," Williams continued. "She exemplifies what a true student-athlete is all about and it's great to see her have all this success after battling through some injuries."

Sophomore Fanny Wolte, who was tied for first heading into today's action, posted a 6-over 78 (37-41) to finish tied for sixth place with a 36-hole score of 150 marking her seventh career top-10 finish. True freshman Katie Kirk claimed her second-straight top-12 finish with a final round 2-over par 74 (39-35) registering her lone birdie of the afternoon on the 13th hole.

Freshman Emily Eng finished tied for 41st in her first collegiate tournament as an individual after posting a 12-over 156 (78-78).

N.C. State claimed the team title with a tournament score 596 (20-over) finishing two shots ahead of the Pirates (598). Missouri (605) took third, while host school Louisville (608) and Penn State (610) rounded out the top five.

The Pirates will be back in action on Oct. 10-11 when they host the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate at the Greenville Country Club.
