Boerne, Texas (SMU) - Fighting tough conditions and playing without one of its stars, the SMU women?s golf team battled to a third-place finish at the Baylor-Tapatio Springs Shootout at the 6,007-yard, par-72 Tapatio Springs Resort Course. Leading the way for the Ponies was sophomore standout Laura Cross, who finished second individually with a three-round total of 223. Her final-round 77 gave her runner-up honors to Baylor's Josefin Svenningsson, who earned individual medalist honors at 221.

The field included five schools ranked among the nation's Top 50 according to Golfstat.com - No. 24 Michigan, No. 29 SMU, No. 38 Baylor, No. 42 Oklahoma and No. 50 Texas Tech.
