BATON ROUGE, La. (SMU) - The SMU women's golf team finished 10th at the LSU Tiger Golf Classic, a tournament that saw the second and third rounds played on Saturday at the University Club of Baton Rouge. The third round was moved to Saturday due to forecasted inclement weather in the area.
Junior Jennifer Park finished 20th in the tournament to lead the Mustangs. Park carded a three-over 75 in the third round to cap-off her weekend.
Sophomore Jenny Haglund carded a one-over 73 in the second round, SMU's lowest round of the day. Haglund finished her day with a seven-over 79, maintaining a spot in the top half of the field to finish 25th. Classmate Alexandra Rossi was forced to withdraw from the second round due to illness. Rossi did come back to golf in the third round, finishing with a 12-over 84 in her final 18 holes of the tournament.
Senior Maria Elena Villamil matched Haglund's spot on the leaderboard, finishing 25th with a 12-over 228. Freshman Katie Page turned in her best round of the tournament in the third round, carding a four-over 76 in the final round, finishing the tournament in 47th.
