CATOOSA, Okla. – The No. 22-ranked Northeastern State women’s golf team finished third in the home tournament, the 15th Annual NSU Women’s Golf Classic Tuesday.
The RiverHawks improved their team score by 17 strokes to end with a final round score of 305 and placed third with an overall score of 627. They battled through a persistent light rain that drizzled throughout the day.
Freshman Baylee Price shot the low round of the tournament with a final-round score of 1-under par 69. She bogeyed the last two holes to finish at 146 and end in a three-way tie for first place with Arkansas Tech’s Megan Jeffery and Ana-Laura Gomez of Southwestern Oklahoma State. Jeffery won the playoff with a birdie on the first hole, but all three individuals were crowned champion.
Also scoring for NSU was freshman Sofia Castiello who shot a 4-over par round 70 and concluded the tournament with 154 tying for seventh place.
