ASHLAND, Ohio—Wittenberg women's golf finished in third place at the 2018 Ashland Invitational over the weekend, as the tournament was cut to one round due to Sunday's inclement weather.

The Tigers fired a 323 (+35) as a team, as Tiffin carded a 312 (+24) and Grand Valley State a 293 (+5).
"Disappointed the weather didn't cooperate for the second day but really proud of our efforts this weekend. I thought we did some really-good things and showed well in a D2 field. Looking forward to seeing how we can build on this next week at UIS," said Head Coach Michael Leotta.
Jane Hopkinson-Wood finished all-alone in seventh place for the Tigers on Saturday, as the senior carded a round of 76 (+4). Hopkinson-Wood finished three strokes off the lead, as Katie Chipman of Grand Valley carded a 73 (+1) on Saturday.
