Rounds of 73 & 70 saw Addie finish in sixth place overall in the individual standings and contributed to a team score in the event of 575, which took the team title by seven shots, ahead of the other nine competing colleges.
Claire McLaughlin (West Kilbride) who is also in the USA, at the Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky, was selected as the Mid-South Conference Women's Golfer of the Week recently following a second place finish at the Blue Raider Classic.
After leading the event with a two-day total of 149 she eventually finished just one shot behind the eventual winner.
During the competition Mclaughlin recorded the best round of the tournament with a one-under-par 71 to help boost the Lindsey Wilson team to an 18-stroke tournament win.
