LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Sarah Bell claimed the individual championship at the Golf Iconic Classic as the Oral Roberts women’s golf team finished fifth in Las Cruces, New Mexico Wednesday. ┬áIt was the second time in program history a Golden Eagle has won the individual championship in back-to-back tournaments.

Bell is the first Golden Eagle since Christy Carter (2008) to win back-to-back individual championships in tournaments played in a season. Bell shot under-par all three rounds with a 71, 67 and 70, to finish with a 208 (-8). It was her lowest three-round score of the fall 2022 season and the third lowest three-round score of her career. She accumulated 12 birdies and only four bogeys and did not have a bogey in round two. Her round two score of 67 was the second of her career.

The Golden Eagles ended the tournament with an 877 (+13). In round one, the team shot a 291 (+3) and a 292 (+4) in round two. In the final round, the team shot a 294 (+6). As a team, ORU had 44 birdies in the tournament.

ORU will compete in the Dale McNamara Invitational hosted by the University of Tulsa Oct. 10-11 at Cedar Ridge Country Club.
