COLUMBUS, Ohio – The No. 13 Ohio State women’s golf team finished in first place Tuesday at the Central District Invitational in Parrish, Fla. The event was held at the par 72 River Wilderness Golf Club (6,099 yards). The event was hosted by Michigan State University.

Ohio State sophomore Kristen White (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) earned her first tournament win as a Buckeye, shooting a career-low 69 in the third round. She totaled a score of 218 for the tournament (77-72-69).

The Buckeyes’ 2002 Big Ten win was the last tournament victory claimed by the squad. The last regular season tournament championship was at the Verizon ‘Mo’Morial. Former Buckeye Mollie Fankhasuer was the last athlete to win a tournament as an individual. She won both the Verizon and Big Ten tournament titles.
