AUSTIN, Texas – The Cameron women’s golf team dropped one spot in the standings to finish 10th in their first event of the spring, the St. Edward’s Crosswinds Gloves Invite.
After carding a 309 in the first round on Monday, the Aggies followed that up with a 315 during Tuesday’s final round. Their 36-hole score of 624 had them in 10th place, 37 strokes back of the invite winner West Texas A&M.
Iona Roska had the lowest finish of the Black and Gold, carding a 78 on Tuesday to give her a score of 155 for the two-day tournament. She finished in a tie for 30th place individually, while teammate Kyndall Morgan was just a stroke behind her in 32nd. Morgan had the biggest jump in scoring, going from an 82 in the first round to a 74 in the second to set her up for a 156 finish.
Freshman Ashley Davis fell off from her first-round 76, shooting an 81 during the second round to finish with a 157 in 38th place. Allison Duffin, who also shot a 76 during round one, added an 82 to her scorecard to give her a 158 for the 36-hole event. Ellie Fellers rounded out the CU grouping with a total score of 163 after shooting an 83 on Tuesday.
Statistically, Roska was one of three golfers to finish an even par of the par-3 holes, making four birdies during her 36-holes of action. Davis added three birdies for the event, while Morgan recorded a team-high 24 pars during the tournament.
The Lady Buffs won the event by six strokes, outlasting Arkansas Tech, who totaled a 593 for the SEU Invite. St. Edward’s was 10 strokes of the lead in third place, while Central Oklahoma (603) and UT Tyler (606) rounded out the top-5.
Cameron was just a stroke back of St. Mary’s and three back of Angelo State. Southwestern Oklahoma State was the closest team behind them, seven strokes back of the Aggies with a 631 score.
WT’s Ueakarn Songprasert and SEU’s Elena Castanon tied for the tournament lead with a pair of 140 scores. The duo played a one-hole playoff on No. 18, with Songprasert coming away with the top spot via a 6-5 win.
