SOUVANNASING ON FIRE

Souvannasing is listed fourth on Union's depth chart but won medalist honors last week at regionals and shot a four-birdie, one-bogey, one-double-bogey, one-under-par 70 to hold a five shot over three other golfers, including two teammates.

Souvannasing was 1-under through the front nine with two birdies and a bogey. She got to 2-under but double-bogeyed 15. Souvannasing drained a 30-foot putt to save par on 16 and finished with an eight-foot birdie on 18.
