The University of South Carolina Beaufort women's golf team finished in the middle of the pack Tuesday at the Charleston Southern Wendy's Invitational in Mount Pleasant.

The Sand Sharks finished at 932, ahead of five NCAA Division I schools. Richmond won the team title at 893, 12 shots clear of Wofford and 13 ahead of Charleston Southern.

Senior Kaitlin O'Sullivan (76-81-75--232) and junior Kendra Collins (78-79-75--232) posted solid rounds of 75 to lead the Sand Sharks on Tuesday and finished in a tie for 21st, followed closely by senior Kelli Nakano (73-78-82--233) in a tie for 26th. Senior Phyllis Langley (75-84-85--244) and sophomore Tori DeGroodt (84-77-83--244) tied for 53rd to round out the lineup.

Richmond's Tracy Martin won the individual title at 1-under-par 215, two shots better than Armstrong Atlantic's Jenna Birch.

The Sand Sharks wrap up their fall season Oct. 29-30 at the Lady Flames Fall Shootout in Cleveland, Tenn.
