UCO rolls to third consecutive win

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (Oct. 21) – Central Oklahoma captured its third tournament championship in three tries and dominated once again here Tuesday as the Bronchos overwhelmed the field at the Lady Lions Invitational.

UCO fired a closing 315 in tough playing conditions at the par-71 Whitmoor Country Club to finish the two-day, 36-hole tournament with a 620 total.  That was good for a 17-shot victory over runner-up Augustana in the 17-team tournament, with the Bronchos having won their three titles by a combined 55 strokes.

Bethany Darrough led the way, claiming medalist honors for the second time this fall with a final-round 79 that gave her a 152 total.  Taylor Neidy had the best score for the Bronchos with a 76 that left her second, just a stroke back at 153, and Aly Seng tied for third at 154 after a 79.

UCO also got an 81 from June Tigert and an 85 from Katie Bensch.

“It was tough out there today with the way the course was set up, but we stayed patient and did what we needed to do,” head coach Michael Bond said.  “It’s a great win for us and we just want to keep working hard at getting better every day.”

The Bronchos wrap up their four-tourney fall schedule next Monday and Tuesday at the Rock Barn Collegiate Invitational in Conover, N.C.
