Congratulations Lilli!

MORGANTON, N.C. – It was a stellar two days for the Wofford women's golf team at App State's Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate Monday and Tuesday with the Terriers placing second, aided by a trio in the top 10 as paced by Lilli Horn's runner-up finish. Three more Terriers placed in the top 20 at the Mimosa Hills Golf and Country Club, a par-72, 6,130-yard course.
Wofford was neck-and-neck with fellow SoCon foe Western Carolina throughout the duration of the tournament. Both squads posted an opening 304, and Wofford concluded day one with a 300 in round two. The Catamounts were only one stroke better to hold a slight edge of a single shot entering the final round. The Terriers put forth a 295 on the final day, but the Catamounts were again just one stroke better. Wofford's final score of 899 is tied for its best of the season (Golfweek Red Sky Classic), but Western Carolina was two strokes ahead to claim the crown in the seven-team field. Despite this, Wofford secured its first runner-up finish since the 2022 Southern Conference Championship.
The Terriers owned the second-most pars (157) and birdies (31) in the field. Western Carolina was the only squad better in both marks. Wofford was one of only three programs to tally an eagle in the event, and it was the only one by a non-individual player.
Lilli Horn was the top Terrier in the event, posting a 6-over 222 to tie for second place. After opening on day one with rounds of 72 and 80, Horn sat in a tie for seventh entering the final round. But she surged on day two, posting a career-low round of 70 to move up five spots into her first-career runner-up result. The finish is the first top-five of her career and her fourth top 10. Horn was the best player in the field on par 5s with a score average of 4.58. She added an eagle on the final day, one of only three registered in the tournament and the only one by a non-individual player. Her eight birdies tied for third most in the field.
Horn fell just short of the low medalist, Western Carolina's Elizabeth Lobhauer with her 218 at 2-over. Horn came within four strokes of the lead in the 45-player event. She is the first Terrier runner-up since teammate Bella Kent placed second in early March of this season at The Puerto Rico Classic. This is first time a pair of Terriers have garnered runner-up results in the same campaign since 2022 when Lindsey Hollis (Islander Classic) and Becca Earl (SoCon Championship) both tallied second-place finishes.


Congratulations Lilli!
