THE WOODLANDS, Texas - The North Texas women's golf team wrapped up competition the Jim West Challenge from from the The Fazio Course at The Club at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas Monday. The Mean Green shot a team score of 298 (+10) on Monday, its best team round of the tournament, and finished 15th overall at +46. 

"Sol and Devin had solid rounds today," head coach Michael Akers said Monday evening. "We are improving as a team but still have work to do to get to the level I expect. This tournament was a great experience to compete against some of the top teams in the nation. We can compete if we can get four scores as we did in the second round at Mizzou. Consistency across the line-up is an issue for us now. We have time to get prepared for the Arkansas-Little Rock tournament, which is an event we can gain some confidence from heading into the off-season."

Sophomore Sol Lee built off of her strong second round, shooting an even-par 72 Monday, which placed her in a tie for 34th place individually alongside senior teammate Eji Kwon. Junior Devin Edwards was excellent Monday as well, shooting her best round of the tournament, with a one-over-par 73. 

Lee birdied on three occasions Monday, on 6, 10 and 14, while Edwards birdied four times in a span of seven holes on 3, 4, 7 and 9. North Texas continued to show marked improvement compared to last season, and shooting under 300 as a team Monday is a bright sign moving forward.

North Texas returns to action with the Little Rock Classic beginning on Sunday, October 30, and carrying through Tuesday, November 1 at Diamante Country Club in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.
