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.  It 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.
