Senior Anne-Catherine Tanguay, who led the Sooners throughout the weekend, shot a team-low 71 (-1) in the third round to finish the tournament at -1. She was at 5 under par through 15 holes Sunday before double-bogeying holes 16 and 18. Tanguay recorded 46 par-or-better holes in the tournament and finished tied for 10th place out of 81 competitors.
OU’s Alexandra Kaui saved her best round of the tournament for last, carding a 73 (+1) on the day. The freshman recorded a 54-hole 226 (+10) en route to a 52nd-place tie.

Sooners’ head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell said she was pleased with how her squad finished the tournament.
"We played more relaxed today," Drouin-Luttrell said. "We saw some great shots out there. AC (Tanguay) finished strong with a top-10 finish individually. We have a couple weeks to prepare before we head to the Big 12 Championship and we will be continuing to work hard toward our goals."
The PING/ASU Invitational marked OU’s last event of regular season play. The Sooners will return to the course April 25-27 for the Big 12 Championship in Austin, Texas.
