BOULDER CITY, Nev. - Freshman Chaslyn Chrismer's first 18 holes at the UNLV Spring Rebel Invitational were forgettable. Her final 18 holes will go down as memorable. Chrismer fired a final round of 5-under par 67 for the North Texas women's golf team as the Mean Green carded a 1-under par 287 and finished in fourth place.
Chrismer's 67 is the second lowest round in school history and her career-low. She shot an opening round of 85 on Monday, but cut 18 strokes off of that by the final round. She had four birdies and an eagle in her third round and finished the tournament tied for 34th.
"This was a really important week for us and the team knew it," said head coach Jeff Mitchell. "They put their hearts into it and played some great golf. This was a great team effort. I am proud of all of these ladies. Chaslyn's 67 is the second best round in school history and a testament to attitude and heart. We are looking forward to a short break and then another opportunity in Cincinnati's tournament at Crystal River."
North Texas finished ahead of No. 44 Tulsa and No. 42 UNLV and behind only BYU, No. 24 Oklahoma, and No. 25 Pepperdine, who captured the tournament. It is the seventh straight tournament that North Texas has finished in the top-5.
Addison Long had a 1-under par 71 in her final round while senior Chandra Alexander posted a top-10 finish after a third round of 1-over par 73. Kelsey Kipp shot a final round of 76 and Jacey Chun a 78.
Alexander finished tied for 10th place while Chrismer, Long, and Chun finished in a tie for 34th place. North Texas is back in action on March 25-27 at the UC Women's Spring Invitational.
