TUCSON, Arizona – Freshman Kendra Dalton's fourth-place finish led BYU women's golf to eighth place at the Mountain View Collegiate on Saturday.
"Today went well even though we struggled coming in," BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. "Kendra had her best tournament. It was a really great effort by her today. It was nice to see our number three and four players shoot some really good scores. That helps the team score the most. We are looking to build off of that for the next tournament."
The Cougars held steady in eighth place (+9) in the 20-team tournament, which is where they finished after the first two rounds. Ohio State won the event by shooting eight-under-par.
Dalton shot five-under-par to end in a tie for fourth place, which her best finish in her career. She shot a team-low of 69 in the third round.
Alexandra White just missed a top-20 finish, ending in a tie for 21st. She shot one-over-par with her lowest score coming from the first round when she shot 70.
Rounding out the team was Carly Oldroyd. She shot 16-over-par and ended the tournament in a tie for 90th.
The Cougars are off for a few weeks until the Cowgirl Classic on April 6-7.
