Golf

The University of Miami women’s golf team fired a final round 302 to win the Peggy Kirk Bell Invitational at Tuscawilla Country Club in Winter Springs, Fla.

Miami, which recorded a three-round total of 910, finished five strokes ahead of host Rollins College. The win for Miami is its first victory since finishing first at the Pat Bradley Invitational in the fall of 1998.

The Hurricanes had four players finish in the top-12 individually including junior Tina Miller and freshman Tiffany Prats who finished in a tie for second with final scores of 224.

Miller and Prats finished behind North Carolina Greensboro’s Polly Willett who defeated the Hurricane duo in a playoff.

Senior Jazmin Cataldo finished 11th while senior Camilla Hilland tied for 12th.

Rowing

The University of Miami rowing team will host the First Annual Hurricane Invitational Regatta on Saturday, March 13 at the Ronald Shane Watersports Center on Indian Creek in Miami Beach, Fla. Preceding the race, on Friday evening, will be a dinner and a boat dedication ceremony.

The regatta will mark the Hurricane’s season opener and is one of only two home events for Miami. Other schools scheduled to compete are Barry University, Central Florida, Connecticut, Loyola Marymount, Nova Southeastern, and West Virginia.

“The unique aspect of this event is that we will be racing a series of dual races rather than racing all of the competitors in one race,” Head Coach Debra Morgan said.

Three boats are set to be christened at the dedication ceremony. The first is for Kirk Landon, who has been very generous in his donations to the rowing program as well as to the athletic department and the university as a whole. The second boat will honor David Wyman, the team’s academic advisor, for his hard work in helping student-athletes achieve in the classroom. The final boat will be named for Victor Ishmael, the team’s strength coach, to acknowledge his assistance in the weight room.
