NEW ORLEANS — A strong 54-hole performance from Chih-Min Chen and a final-round charge from Maddie McCrary led the Oklahoma State women’s golf team to an 11-over 875 at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship, which tied the Cowgirls with Arizona for third place.

McCrary carded four birdies and just a single bogey in the third round to move up 18 spots on the leaderboard with a 3-under 69. She is finished tied for 16th place at 2-over 218 overall.

Linnea Johansson worked her way up the leaderboard with 1-under 71 for the final round. The senior tied for 49th with a 12-over 228 on the week.
