BATAVIA, Ohio.--Paced by Marissa Steen's sixth place individual showing, the University of Memphis women's golf team finished fifth at the 2010 Cincinnati Fall Classic.

Tournament-host Cincinnati (308-305-300--913) and Penn State (305-306-304--915) also finished ahead of Memphis.
Sarah Mathews had the second lowest total for the Lady Tigers, finishing in a tie for 27th position with scores of 80-76-79. Alex Aläng posted rounds of 77-82-77 to finish in a tie for 33rd. Kathleen Glavin (79-83-75--237) and Ashley Kees (82-82-79--243) finished in ties for 37th and 51st, respectively.
Memphis will return to competition Oct. 11-12 when they travel to Greenville, N.C. to compete in the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate. Following that event, the Lady Tigers will return to the Bluff City for the Memphis Women's Invitational at Ridgeway Country Club.
