NORMAN, Okla. -- The University of Oklahoma women’s golf team shot a third-round 285 (-3) Tuesday at the Alamo Invitational to cruise to its second straight tournament win of the season at the par-72 Briggs Ranch Golf Course in San, Antonio Texas. The Sooners’ 16-under 848 broke the school record for lowest 54-hole score, and all five OU golfers finished in the top 20 out of 78 competitors.
The Sooners finished ahead of six top-40 teams and beat second-place Texas A&M by eight strokes. In the past two tournaments, OU has set program records for 18-, 36- and 54-hole scores.
“I’m really proud of everyone,” said OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell. “We played well all week. It was a great way for us to end our fall season and makes us look forward to the spring season.”
Senior Taylor Schmidt and junior Kaitlyn Rohrback led the way for OU on the week, each tying for third place. At 4 under par, they finished three shots behind medalist Maribel Lopez Porras of Baylor. The finish tied a career best for both Sooners.
Schmidt fired a 1-over 73 Tuesday for a three-round 212 and her sixth career top-10 showing (first of the season). Rohrback fired her first ever bogey-free round in a collegiate tournament, shooting a 1-under 71. She birdied the par-5 seventh hole and parred the other 17.
Junior Anne-Catherine Tanguay recorded a team-best 69 (-3) in the third round. Tanguay began the day in a tie for 15th place and moved up to finish the tournament in a tie for fifth place with a three-round score of 213 (-3). Tanguay finished in the top 10 in all four of OU’s fall events.
Emily Collins finished the tournament in a tie for 15th place after carding a third-round 74 (+2). It marked the eighth top-20 career finish for the junior and fourth this season.
Junior Chirapat Jao-Javanil started the day in a tie for 20th place, but thanks to a final-round 72 (E) moved up to finish in a tie for 18th place with a three-round 217 (+1).
