SAINT GEORGE, Utah – No. 31 BYU women’s golf placed second at the BYU at Entrada Classic on Tuesday with Kendra Dalton and Alexandra White placing in the top 10.

“Our mindset coming in today’s round was different,” BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. “We made the needed adjustments. We didn’t waste mental energy and we committed. Coming in, this course is different than we have ever played it."

The Cougars posted 299-294-286. In its round on Tuesday, BYU fired 11 birdies. The Cougars shot the best Tuesday round of any team in the field, shooting 2-under.

No. 12 Kent State captured first place at the BYU at Entrada Classic, shooting 2-over through 54 holes.

West Coast Conference foes San Francisco and Gonzaga finished in seventh and ninth place, respectively. In-state opponent SUU tied for 10th, while UVU placed 12th.

Dalton led the Cougars firing a 68 in round three. The junior birdied four holes on Tuesday—1, 8, 15, 17. She carded the best round on Tuesday out of any individual.

“I played really freed today,” Dalton said. “I didn’t play worried. I trusted my shot and hit each shot as it came. I finished strong and didn’t get ahead of myself today.”

Dalton shot 72-76-68 and tied for second place. She has placed in the top 10 five times this season.

White tied for seventh place for her sixth top-10 finish of the year. She made par on every hole on the front nine, and also shot even par on the back nine. White carded 76-72-72 through three rounds.
