Lee Leads Mean Green On Final Day Of Texas State Invite
Sol Lee Fired A One-Under 70 In The Final Round To Lift North Texas To Tie For Sixth
NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas - The Mean Green concluded action on a wet and rainy Tuesday at the Texas State Invitational from The Bandit Golf Course in New Braunfels, Texas, in a tie for sixth place. Sophomore Sol Lee led the way with a one-under 70 in the final round of play, and finished in a tie for ninth place individually, which equaled her best finish at North Texas.
Teams opened Tuesday morning by finishing the second round, which had been suspended on Monday, due to darkness.
"We definitely feel we could have played better," head coach Michael Akers said. "We probably could have done a better job of adapting to the changing course conditions. There was a very dramatic change from round one, to round two and even more to round three. We are looking forward to getting back to work and preparing for the next event in a couple of weeks in Houston."
Lee rebounded from a tough finish to her second round to fire the second-best round of her Mean Green career, that included four birdies, as well as her second eagle in as many days, this time on the 14th hole.
"She did excellent," Akers continued, regarding Lee's strong performance. "She had a tough close to the end of round two, where she had a triple bogey on 17. I think that really motivated her for the final round, where she just tore it up."
Freshman Lauren Cox carded a 75 in the third and final round, the best round of her young collegiate career. She birdied twice on the day, on the first and 18th holes.
North Texas returns to action at the Houston Invitational on Feb. 27 and 28, from The Woodlands, Texas. Follow the Mean Green women's golf program on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for a more in-depth look at the 2017 spring season.
