The Northeast Alabama Community College women’s golf team posted a sixth-place finish in the Wallace State Women’s Golf Invitational at Cross Creek Golf Course in Cullman on Tuesday and Wednesday.

NACC, which started its women’s and men’s golf programs this fall, was playing in its inaugural women’s golf match.

The Mustangs shot an opening-round 457 before trimming their score to 436 in Round 2 and finishing with an overall score of 893.

“We were nervous the first day,” NACC head coach Darrell Kirk said. “We came back and improved 21 strokes the second round, so I think we did OK.”

Tatem Jones of Crossville led the NACC effort by shooting a 96 in Round 1 and a 94 in Round 2 for a two-round score of 190.

Adrianne Fox of Fort Payne followed with a 210 (108-102) while Bailey Raulston of South Pittsburg, Tennessee shot  223 (116-107) and Kelsey Draper of Pisgah shot 270 (137-133).

The NACC women’s golf team’s next match is the Marion Military Institute Tournament at Highland Parks Golf Course in Birmingham on Oct. 9-10.

Meanwhile, the NACC men’s team plays its second tournament of the fall season, the Snead State Invitational, on Monday and Tuesday at Gunters Landing Golf Club in Guntersville.
