K-State Finishes Seventh in Utah

ST. GEORGE, Utah - The Kansas State women's golf team finished in seventh place with a score of 34-over par 898 following Tuesday's final round of the BYU Entrada Classic at the par-72, 7,085-yard Entrada Golf Course.

The Wildcats tallied 11 birdies on the day en route to an 11-over par 299, improving from their second-round score on Monday.

"This was not the finish that we wanted," head coach Kristi Knight said. "The team competed well, but we could not quite get four scores. I am proud of the effort."

Sophomore Madison Talley carded her sixth top 20 finish after tying for 14th with a final score of 7-over par 223. Freshman Connie Jaffrey, who fired a 72 in the final round, and sophomore Katherine Gravel-Coursol both carded a 10-over par 226 to finish tied for 25th. Senior Carly Regains carded a 13-over par 229 and finished tied for 34th; while senior Olivia Eliasson ended the day tied for 41st and tallied a 14-over par 230.

California had a strong final round to keep its place at the top of the leaderboard with a score of 8-under par 856, 20 strokes ahead of second-place BYU.

BYU's Alex White won individual honors with a final score of 8-under par 208, one stroke ahead of second-place finisher Lucia Gutierrez of California.

The Wildcats will be back in action March 20-21 as they travel to Tucson, Arizona, to compete in the Mountain View Collegiate.
