Anna Haglind fired 77 (+5) in the final round, to finish one shot back of Coll, in a tie for 24th, (79-74-77=230). Johanna Soderstrom bounced back from shooting 81 in each of the first two rounds and shot a solid 73 (+1) in the final round to finish in a tie for 34th. Isadora Stapff fired the day’s second lowest round shooting an even-par 72 on her way to finishing in a tie for 37th, (80-85-72). Lizzi Over (78-81-87=246) rounded out the teams’ scores finishing in a tie for 59th.
Yale University (305-296-301=902) held off a late charge by Florida Atlantic University (303-301-299=903) to win the team event by one shot. Meanwhile, Lamar University’s Therese Nilsson (72-72-71=215) completed her wire-to-wire victory firing a 1-under-par 71 to finish the tournament at 1-under.
The Bucs will be in action again on October 20-21 at the Saint Leo Invitational in Tampa, Fla.
