SPARTANBURG, SC—The Belmont Abbey Women's Golf team shot a final round 368 to finish in 12th place at the 2016 Converse Spring Invitational by Founders FCU, which was contested  at the Par 72 5,881 yard Carolina Country Club. The event was hosted by Converse College.

Anderson University recorded a second round score of 321, to edge Queens by one shot, and win the team title. Wingate finished three back, at 643 to finish third. The Bulldogs recorded the lowest round of the tournament, carding a final round score of 314.
