NORMAN, Okla. (SMU) - Sophomore Jenny Haglund carded a three-under 67 to pace the SMU women's golf team to a seven-over 287, its best team score of the 2013-14 season, in the final round of the Schooner Classic on Monday at Belmar Golf Club. SMU finished its second tournament of the season in 12th.
"We hit some good shots, made some putts and had a better day out there overall today," head coach Jeanne Sutherland said. "Jenny played a really good round of golf today, and Alex (Rossi) might not have hit the ball as well as she wanted to this week, but she fought really hard for a 72 out there today."
Haglund's three-under tally is the second-best output of her career, and the best score of her sophomore campaign. The second-year Mustang kept a clean scorecard on Monday, recording four birdies and just a single bogey on her way to finishing 12th in the tournament.
Sophomore Alexandra Rossi finished Monday with the team's second-best round, a two-over 72, led by an even-par first nine holes (back nine).
Senior Maria Elena Villamil finished the tournament in 25th, after matching Sunday's score with her second-straight four-over 74. Junior Jennifer Park finished 48th after her season-best four-over 74. Park played the final 10 holes of her round at even-par.
Freshman Lindsey McCurdy dropped three strokes off her second collegiate round to record a four-over 74 on Monday.
"We need to get better at accepting conditions and fighting hard from the first shot to the last shot," Sutherland said. "We can't care if it's pretty or not, we have to go out there and get a score. We'll have to pay closer attention to our course management in Austin next week. The practice round will be very important for us next week, as we try to find the spots we want to be on the course."
