KYLE, Texas –– The Tulsa women’s golf team placed second at the 54-hole Texas State Invitational on Tuesday, led by Lilly Thomas’ second-place performance at the par-72 Plum Creek Golf Course.

Thomas finished the first nine holes with five straight birdies to sit at 5-under par at the turn. Her only hiccup on the day came on the par-4, 370-yard 14th hole when she suffered a triple bogey. Thomas gathered herself and parred the final four holes to complete the round.
Thomas finished three strokes behind individual medalist Annick Haczkiewicz of BYU.
