In an event that was scheduled to feature 72 holes of golf over four days, Caligiore finished with a 5-over par 78 on Thursday, May 12. The tournament was shortened to 54 holes due to rain. On the final day, the Saint Lawrence University sophomore moved up from 35th place to finish deadlocked in 14th place.
Her 78 was just one of five rounds below 80 on the day.
Caligiore began the championships with a round of 81 and turned in an 88 on the second day. After firing her solid 78 in round three, she was having another strong day Friday through 13 holes when thunderstorms moved in and caused play to be halted.
On Wedensday, Caligiore was named all-region and also earned her all-American honorable mention status. If the tournament had not been halted, Caligiore could have potentially moved into the top 10, which would have earned her all-American honors.
She finished with a 54-hole 247 total, which was 28 strokes over par.
Methodist’s Paige Caldwell won the tournament with a 13-over par 232 total.
Caligiore is the first female golfer in Saint Lawrence University history to receive all-American recognition. She also turned in the top individual finish ever for the Saints at the NCAA Championships.
This spring, Caligiore finished in the top 10 in seven of the Saints eight tournaments. She also shot a career-best 73 at the Saint Lawrence Invitational and also captured the title in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships.
