The Blue Raiders were fourth entering Tuesday's final round but posted their highest team score of the three rounds over the final 18. All five players shot between Wilkins' 78 and 82 for a team score of 318 in the final round and a three-day total of 939.
Junior Taryn Durham was tied for 11th heading into Tuesday's action but posted a round of 82. The Glasgow, Ky., native tied for 24th overall with a three-round score of 235.
Sophomore Mallory Bishop and freshman Clara Leathers both carded a final-round 79, while junior Jamey Dillard posted an 81 for her final 18 holes. Bishop tied for 24th with Durham with a three-round score of 235 and Leathers tied for 29th one stroke behind. Dillard finished at 237, tied for 31st.
Wilkins struggled through the first two rounds before carding her 78 over the final 18 holes. She tied for 45th overall with a three-round total of 245.
"We made some bad choices on the golf course, really left a lot of shots on the course," head coach Rachael Short said. "Course management just killed us, but now we know what we need to work on heading into the spring."
The event was the final tournament for the women this fall. The Blue Raiders next play in February in Miami, Fla., at the Pat Bradley Invitational.
