Brittany Henderson of Smiths Falls had her best finish so far in her collegiate career last week to help her team to a 3rd straight top five finish.

The much heralded junior golfer is now a freshman at Coastal Carolina University and the team kicked off their Spring season last week in Florida.

The 2010 Hurricane Invitational took place February 14-16 at the Don Shula’s Golf Club in Miami Lakes.  The Coastal Carolina team posted 902 for the three-day tournament, 18 strokes back of the winners, the team from the University of Central Florida (UCF).

Individually Henderson tied for 13th place with scores of 75-74-77-226.  Aruka Felgueroso led the Chanticleers team at 220 as the individual runner-up.

The Chanticleers return to the course Mon.-Tue., March 1-2 for the UCF Challenge at the Red Tail Country Club in Orlando, Fla.
