Sarah Sideranko carded a final-round 79 at the Rockledge Golf Course Tuesday to lead the University of Hartford women's golf team to a second-place team finish as the host of the Hartford Hawks Women's Golf Invitational. Sideranko and the Hawks scored a 336 in Tuesday's final round at Rockledge for a combined score of 664 in the two-round tournament.
Monmouth came away with the team victory, posting a score of 648 while also boasting the individual medalist, Kelsi Kavanaugh, who scored a 157 for the tournament. Holy Cross finished third in the team standings behind the host Hawks with a score of 716.
Sideranko, a senior from New Britain, Conn., paced the Hawks in her final regular-season tournament as a collegian.
