Daytona Beach, Fla. -- Furman senior Stefanie Kenoyer (71-78-78=227) capped her Paladin career with a six-over 78 on Saturday morning in the NCAA Women's Golf East Regional at the LPGA International's par-72 Legends Course in Daytona Beach, Fla.

In fourth place after Thursday's opening round, Kenoyer posted back-to-back rounds of 78 on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning to fall out of contention for a spot in the NCAA Championship May 18-21, in Bryan Texas.

Kenoyer (+11), who finished in a tie for 52nd place, recorded a double bogey on her opening hole and suffered a bogey on No. 3 to start three-over through three holes.  The Lighthouse Point, Fla., native notched a birdie at No. 4 and played the remainder of the front nine at par, but two bogeys on the back side and a double bogey at No. 16 ended her chances of a berth in the NCAA Championship.

"Obviously I'm sad to see my college career come to an end, but I couldn't have imagined a better place than Furman to spend my 4 years playing," said Kenoyer, who will join the LPGA Futures Tour this summer.  "I have had the best coaches and teammates I could ever ask for and it has been an incredible experience. Now I just have to prepare myself for professional golf and hope to enjoy it as much as I have my college years." 

A 2008 and 2009 SoCon individual medalist, Kenoyer captured SoCon Player of the Year honors in both 2009 and 2010.  She is a three-time National Golf Coaches Association All-Scholar Team member and received Furman's annual Student-Athlete Achievement Award last month.

Alabama's Stephanie Meadow (-9) captured individual medalist honors finishing six strokes ahead of California's Pia Halbig (-3).  Alabama (+2), North Carolina (+4), Arizona State (+7), Coastal Carolina, California, Purdue, Florida and Vanderbilt all qualified for the NCAA Championship field.
