LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Middle Tennessee women's golf team finished a season best ninth at the UALR Lady Trojan Classic. The Lady Raiders, who were in eighth after two rounds, shot a final round 325 to slip back one spot. MT shot a season-low 952 (308-319-325).

"We are showing signs of improving, but we simply have to do better in the final round," head coach Kim St. John said. "We're getting better with each tournament, but we just need to put it all together one time. These are the best scores we have posted this year, but I know we can do better."

Sophomore Tamara Munsch led the way with a three-round total of 231 to finish in a tie for 13th. Munsch had her best final round score of the year on Tuesday by shooting a 79, which enabled her to collect her top overall finish of the season. Junior Kandace Burnett tied for 26th with scores of 78-80-78=236. Like Munsch, Burnett enjoyed her best final round score of the year with a 78.

Freshman Kristin Lynch picked up her top finish of the year by placing in a tie for 37th. Lynch posted rounds of 81-79-81=241. First year player Amanda Harter tied for 54th with a 246 (77-82-87), while Kemmerlee Pennington completed the scoring by finishing in a tie for 62nd. Pennington shot a three-round total of 251 (79-85-87).

The Lady Raiders will be off until competing in their final fall tournament on Oct. 28-29 in Atlanta, GA.
