Wildcats Wrap Up Price's Give?em Five Collegiate

Las Cruces, N.M. The Kansas State women’s golf was unable to make up any ground in the third and final round on Wednesday as the Wildcats shot a 23-over 311 to finish the Price’s Give’em Five Collegiate tied for 11th at 307-314-311932 (+68).

Kasey Claussen, who was tied for 6th place after two rounds, shot a tournament low 5-under 67 in round three to finish in second place at even par 216.

Junior Morgan Moon was the Wildcats’ best finisher as she carded a 73-77-80230 (+14) and finished tied for 31st. Freshman Paige Osterloo finished six strokes back from Moon with a 79-80-77236 (+20).
