Last week Terzian had rounds of 78, 73 and 78 over the
6,131-yard, par-72 River Course at the River Landing Golf Course in Wallace,
N.C. for a 229 total that enabled her to finish in a tie for seventh at the
UNCW Seahawk Classic. It was the third top-10 finish that Terzian, a Haverford
resident, has recorded for the Blue Hens during the 2013-14 campaign.
Freshman Vitoria Teixeira was Delaware’s low finisher with
rounds of 76, 73 and 77 for a 226 total that left her alone in fifth place.
Lori Beth Adams of host North Carolina Wilmington claimed individual honors
with rounds of 74, 71 and 72 for a 1-over 217 total that was four shots clear

315 and 312.
