Battled freezing temperatures and scorching winds, the Rebels closed a six-stroke lead over tournament leaders SMU to eventually claim the team tournament title at West Point with a score of 867 (+3) in three rounds. Senior Andrea Lignell continued her strong fall season with a win in the tournament’s individual title race, finishing three-under par to earn her second individual medalist of the fall season. Lignell is now only the third Rebel in the program’s history to have multiple medalists in the same season (Julia Johnson – 2017-18, Sarah Britt – 1992-93).


Andrea Lignell and Chiara Tamburlini were among 20 of the nation’s top women’s collegiate golfers named on the ANNIKA Award Final Fall Watch List presented by Stifel. The award is presented annually to the most distinguished female college golfer, as voted for by players, coaches and media. Both of the Rebel seniors have dominated the fall season for the Rebels, taking the top 10 individual finishes this year in each of their tournament appearances for the team, including two tournament wins for Lignell. This is the second time two rebels have made their way to the award’s final list for the fall, with the last time coming in 2020 when Ellen Hume and Kennedy Swann were both on the list after their fall seasons.
