Meghan Doherty Finishes As Runner-Up At RIWGA Championship

REHOBOTH, Mass. – Senior Meghan Doherty (Westerly, R.I.) was the runner-up at the 2010 Rhode Island Women's Golf Association Championship, which took place from July 12-16 at the Crestwood Country Club. Doherty was edged by Marisa White 2-up in Friday's final pairing to finish in second place. Doherty was only one down heading into the 18th hole, before White recorded a birdie to claim the title.

Doherty began the week by shooting a 76 in the opening round on Monday, to earn medalist honors. That performance earned her the top seed in the championship bracket, where she defeated Margie Foss 6 & 4 in the round of 16 on Tuesday. Doherty then posted a 2 & 1 win over Judy Davis in Wednesday's quarterfinals, before downing Kibbe Reilly 3 & 2 in Thursday's semifinals.
