Kuehn Wins First Collegiate Event as Wake Forest Cruises at ANNIKA Intercollegiate

September 18, 2019

 
  LAKE ELMO, Minn. – Playing in her first collegiate events this week against one of the strongest fields in women’s golf, Wake Forest University freshman Rachel Kuehn carded a final-round 69 Wednesday to claim a wire-to-wire victory, as well as leading the Demon Deacons to the team title at the 2019 ANNIKA Intercollegiate presented by 3M at The Royal Golf Club.
 
Kuehn opened the championship with back-to-back rounds of 67, extending her lead during each of the first two rounds before four birdies over her final 10 holes gave her a five-stroke victory over the University of Arizona’s Vivian Hou at 13-under 203.
 
As a team, Wake Forest never trailed during the championship and cruised during the final round Wednesday to earn a 14-stroke victory over the University of Arkansas, posting a 54-hole team total of 17-under 847.
 
The University of Minnesota carded a team total of 319 on the final day to place 12th, 33 shots behind the University of Virginia, who placed 11th at 905.
 
The Gophers were led by junior Kate Lillie, who bounced back from an opening-round 79 by posting rounds of 72 and 73, respectively, to finish tied for 39th at 224. Freshman Annabelle Ackroyd slipped during the final round Wednesday, shooting a 10-over 82 to finish tied for 50th at 233.
