DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Barry women's golf team finished second at the Southwest Minnesota State Spring Invite Friday on the course where the NCAA Division II Championships will be held in mid-May.

The Buccaneers shot 299 in the final round, trimming 23 strokes off their opening-day total, to claim the runner-up honor on the 6,098-yard LPGA International Legends Course. The Bucs finished with a 36-hole total of 621. Lynn won the tournament at 34-over 610. Flagler was third at 636, Indiana State fourth at 645, and William Woods (Mo.) fifth at 646.

Barry freshman Maria Paola Fiorio shot par in the final round, climbing seven spots on the individual leader board to finish fourth at 9-over 153. Her 72 Friday was the best round of her young Buccaneer career.

Lynn's Ellen Chambers won the tournament, shooting 79-71 -- 150. Fighting Knights teammate Louise Manalo tied for second with Flagler's Marie Santacroce, two strokes back.

Three Buccaneers tied for ninth with Indiana State's Amanda Smith at 157. Barry's Taylor Babcock, Nicky Ferre and Daniela Murray all were 13-over. Babcock had a 2-over 74 in the final round, and Ferre was 4-over in the second round. Murray, who played as an individual, shot 78 Friday. Fellow Bucs Francesca Perini and Nancy Vergara shot 160 and 161, respectively. Perini tied for 17th, and Vergara finished 21st.

The Bucs, ranked No. 7 in the nation, are off for three weeks. They will compete in the United States Women's Invitational in Charlotte, N.C., April 8-9.
