Tusculum rallies to win Barton Intercollegiate, Keim goes wire-to-wire to capture medalist honors

WILSON, N.C. --- Tusculum's Jennifer Keim carded back-to-back rounds of 73 to lead the Pioneers to the team title of the 2020 Barton Intercollegiate, which was held this week at the Wilson Country Club.

Tusculum overcame a two-shot deficit heading into Tuesday's final round to overtake Mount Olive and shot 314 to finish with 632, three shots clear of the Trojans' 635.

Keim led the tournament wire-to-wire to claim her first medalist honor with the Pioneers as she won by 10 strokes over runner-ups Linn Andersson (77-79=156) of Mount Olive and Belmont Abbey's Morgan Comer (78-78=156).  TU's Olivia Cunningham earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team as she tied for fourth place with 81-76=157, matching the scores of Jenna Nagy (80-77=157) of Belmont Abbey and Emma Leclercq (79-78=157) of Mount Olive.

Belmont Abbey finished third in the team competition with 640, followed by host Barton (689), King University (693), Belmont Abbey B (717) and Chowan (896).

Tusculum's Hannah Brown tied for 12th place with her two-day total 82-83=165, while Tayler Gransen finished 19th with 86-82=168. Yen Xuan Ong wrapped up the Pioneer scoring with 82-87=169 to finish 20th.

The Pioneers return to action next week (Mar. 15-17) as they compete at the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate in Sevierville, Tennessee.
