BOERNE, Texas - Despite cold and rainy weather, University of Memphis women's golf sophomore Stacey Tate closed out the final round of the Baylor-Tapatio Springs Shootout with a 6-over-par 78 to finish tied for 15th individually.

Play was delayed for an hour and a half Saturday due to rain as the temperature dropped into the 50s after two opening rounds played in sunny weather that topped 80 degrees. The Lady Tigers (323-326-334--983) ended the tournament tied for 15th among the field of 18 teams.

After setting a round low in the second round of the tournament on Friday by carding an 80, sophomore Ashley Burross tied her career tournament low with an 85-80-86--251. This tournament marked the first of the season for Burross. Forced to withdraw in the second round, sophomore Meghan Mahoney made a return individually in the third round shooting an 85.

Baylor shot a final-round 311 Saturday to hold off Michigan and earn a seven-stroke win. Finishing behind Baylor (295-291-311--897) and Michigan (301-300-303--904) in the team standings was SMU (314-296-314--924), 27 strokes back after shooting a final-round 314 Saturday. Oklahoma finished fourth at 931 and Texas Tech was fifth at 938. Rounding out the top 10 were Florida International and UTEP (sixth place tie - 958), Wisconsin (eighth place - 962) and Arkansas-Little Rock, Eastern Michigan and Toledo (ninth place tie - 965).

Baylor's Josefin Svenningsson earned individual medalist honors after carding a final-round seven-over 79 and finishing the tournament at five-over 221. She became the first Bear to win the individual title at the Baylor Shootout, and was one of three Baylor golfers to finish among the top five in the field of 98. Laura Cross of SMU finished as runner up to Svenningsson, carding a five-over 77 Saturday and finishing at seven-over 223. Baylor freshman Sian Reddick finished third at eight-over 224 after shooting a five-over 77 in the final round.

 

 

The field of 18 teams included five schools ranked among the nation's Top 50 according to Golfstat.com (No. 24 Michigan, No. 29 SMU, No. 38 Baylor, No. 42 Oklahoma and No. 50 Texas Tech).

The Lady Tigers will next compete in their final tournament before hosting the Conference USA Championship on April 18-20. Memphis will travel to Hattiesburg, Miss., to take part in the Golden Eagle Invitational hosted by Southern Miss on April 4-5.
