LEBANON, Tenn. – Sophomore Abbey Burgdorf card a four-over par 75 in the final round and sophomore Savanna Strode shot 80, leading the Cumberland women’s golf team at the Callaway Gardens Invitational on Tuesday in Pine Mountain, Ga.

Burgdorf posted three birdies and five bogeys in her round on the par-71, 5,808-yard Lake View Course after beginning the round with a double bogey on the first hole. She was four-over on the front nine but shot even on the back, including a birdie on the par-4 17th.

Strode was two-over on the front nine and only four-over through 15 before finishing bogey-bogey-triple bogey for a nine-over par 80. She birdied the par-3 second hole and the par-5 12th and shot nine strokes better in the second round than the first.

Sophomore Morgan Stuckey struggled in her round of 86 on Tuesday. She did not record a birdie and a quadruple bogey on the par-3 10th stifled any momentum she might have been able to put together on the back nine.

Freshman Tessa Barto finished with a second-round 91, collecting a birdie on the par-3 12th hole but finishing with a nine on the par-4 18th.

Freshman Anna Leigh Cleveland shot 98 on Tuesday that included triple bogeys on Nos. 9 and 18.

Cumberland hosts the Phoenix Invitational in two weeks at Windtree Golf Club in Mt. Juliet, Tenn.
