Individually, she finished tied for 13th as she highlighted her outing with a 5-under 67 in the second round. Loy – who is ranked No. 88 in the country – finished the three-day tournament at 6-over 222. The tournament field featured three players, other than Loy, ranked in the top-100 nationally. In nine straight outings, she has placed in the top-20 individually dating back to her freshman season.
Loy led the ETSU women’s team to a tie for seventh place at the 3M Augusta Invitational, which featured three top-50 ranked teams – No. 23 Purdue, No. 33 Tennessee and No. 45 Augusta.
Last season, Loy won her first collegiate SoCon player of the week honor as she finished second in the same event in Augusta.
