WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. -- Barry University women's golf team finished fifth at the Peggy Kirk Bell Invitational Tuesday after shooting a final round 308 for a 925 54-hole total in the 11-team, three-round tournament hosted by Rollins College.

The Buccaneers were 61-over on the 6,089-yard Tuscawilla Country Club course. Nova Southeastern won the event with a 22-over 886. Lynn was second at 56-over 920, and Rollins and St. Edward's tied for third at 921. It was Nova's fifth straight title in the tournament. The Sharks' 886 established a new event record, eclipsing their old mark by 12 strokes set in 2009.

Barry's Taylor Babcock continued her stronger spring quest, finishing tied for sixth after shooting back-to-back 74s in the final two rounds. A senior from Oregon, Babcock finished at 11-over 227, tied with Nova Southeastern's Lilliana Cammisa.

NSU's Linnea Johansson shot 1-under 71-72-72 -- 215 to win the tournament by seven strokes over teammate Daniela Ortiz. Nova's Abbey Gittings was third, a stroke behind Ortiz, as the Sharks trio finished at the top of the leaderboard.

Barry's Nicky Ferre tied for 10th, shooting 3-over 75 in the final round for a 229 two-day total. Maria Paola Fiorio and Francesca Perini tied for 23rd at 235. Daniela Murray tied for 33rd at 240.
