Parrott runs away with MSC Tournament Individual Championship
Bowling Green, KY - It was a strong day for the Campbellsville University women's golf team and an even stronger day for Gracie Parrott as Parrott earned the individual championship at the Mid-South Conference Tournament Friday afternoon, May 7, 2021.
The Lady Tigers shot their team low for the tournament with a 313 (+25) as that score was also the lowest team round of the final round, outshooting champions University of the Cumberlands by a stroke. CU finished in second place with a three-round total of 944 (+80) as the Patriots won the team championship with a 927 (+63).
The story was Parrott, who becomes the first Lady Tiger to earn the individual championship since Cassidy Scantland did so in her freshman year of 2013-14. Parrott, the daughter of Walt and Deana Coffey-Parrott, and the granddaughter of Adair County Magistrate, Billy D. Coffey, wrapped up the tournament with a three-round tournament total of 214 (-2) as the only player to shoot under par for the entire tournament.
Parrott had two days under par finishing her third round at 71 (-1) to beat Pikeville's Boo Newsome by 10 strokes as she shot an 80 (+8) on the final day to finish the tournament at 224 (+8). Going head-to-head with MSC Golfer of the Year, Carlee Shoemaker of University of the Cumberlands, Parrott outshot Shoemaker by six strokes in the final round to pull away and have Shoemaker finish in third at 225 (+9).
With the individual win, Parrott clinched the Mid-South Conference Freshman of the Year honor, also the first MSC Freshman of the Year award for the Lady Tigers since Scantland in 2013-14. Parrott will also accept the individual automatic bid to the NAIA Championships to be play on May 25-28 at Rose Creek Golf Course in Oklahoma City.
The rest of the Campbellsville lineup did their part to pull the Lady Tigers ahead of Lindsey Wilson College by seven strokes after the Blue Raiders held the second place spot after the final rounds wrapped up on Friday morning. Playing holes 15 through 18 early on Friday morning Parrott finished up a 74 (+2), Abbie Coffey shot a 78 (+6), Connor Geralds had an 80 (+8), Paige Ferguson finished at 85 (+13), and Cortney Withrow shot a second round 94 (+22).
With their combined performances between the MSC Spring and Fall Invites along with the MSC Championship scores, Parrott, Coffey, and Geralds earned spots on the All-MSC Teams as Parrott is a First Team selection with Coffey and Geralds on the Second Team.
In the final round behind Parrott, both Coffey and Geralds put up matching scores of 80 (+8) with Withrow scoring her best round of the tournament at 82 (+10), and Ferguson finishing up at 90 (+18).
The Lady Tigers will hope this week bolsters their resume for a possible at large bid into the NAIA Championship to join Parrott as the full team as announcements for the full field will be made next week.
