YORK, England – Duke University sophomore Celine Boutier closed the 2013 European Ladies’ Amateur Team Championship over the weekend at the Fulford Golf Club in York, England.  Boutier represented France, which earned a No. 7 seed to advance to match play.  

A product of Montrouge, France, Boutier carded rounds of 69 and 74 as she placed tied for 10th with a one-under-par, 143, in stroke play.  Oona Vartiainen of Finland and Madelene Sagstrom of Sweden claimed individual medalist honors with an eight-under-par ledger.  

As a team, France placed tied for sixth with a 21-over-par score, while Denmark earned the No. 1 seed in match play by shooting 19-under-par as a team.  

France was seeded No. 7 and faced Spain in Flight A match play, but lost 5.5-1.5 to drop into the consolation bracket.  Boutier went up against Marta Sanz and halved the match.  She also teamed with Alexandra Bonetti in a foursome match but lost 4&2 to Sanz and Natalia Escuriola.  

In the consolation bracket, France downed Netherlands 4-1.  Boutier halved her singles match versus Ileen Domela Nieuwenhuis.  France dropped a 4-1 decision to Denmark to close the championship.  In the match, Boutier fell, 3&1, to Daisy Nielsen.  

Spain claimed the team title with a 5-2 victory over Austria.  

Boutier is a product of Montrouge, France and is coming off a rookie campaign at Duke where she was named the ACC Rookie of the Year and was a Golfweek Honorable Mention All-America selection.
