Senior Staci Lynch finished 42nd with a 159 (76-83), freshman Catherine Smith was 52nd with a 163 (82-81) and junior Ashley Wathen was 54th with a 164 (83-81).

“Today’s round is not how we had envisioned finishing the fall season,” said Lady Govs head coach Sara Robson. “I was proud of the way Angelina came back for us today. As a team, we did not putt well and that hurt us. We need to work hard in the offseason and be ready for the spring. I’m proud of the entire team’s effort so far this season.”

Austin Peay finished the tournament with a 638 (316-322). Memphis won the team title with a two-day 595 total.

The Lady Govs will take the next three months off before beginning the spring portion of their schedule, March 1-2, at the Murray State Spring Invitational.
