WACO, Texas - It was a sensational close to the final regular season tournament for the North Texas women's golf team as it fired a tournament-low round of 1-over par 289 and finished in second place at the Baylor Spring Invitational.
The Mean Green's 289 was tied for the fourth-lowest round of the year and only five strokes off the school record. North Texas also knocked off two ranked teams in the process in No. 28 Oklahoma and No. 50 Augusta State.
"This is a big day for us," said head coach Jeff Mitchell. "This was a real statement by this team. I couldn't be more proud of them fighting for every shot."
Sophomore Jacey Chun shot a career-low round of 2-under par 70 and finished with a career-low 220. Chun moved up the leaderboard and finished in a career-best tie for second place. She had six birdies on the day, which included a string of four straight to open up the back nine holes.
Addison Long rebounded with a 3-under par score round of 69 to finish in a tie for 15th place. Long's final round had two birdies, an eagle, and 14 pars and only one bogey.
Kelsey Kipp finished in a tie for 11th place with a final round of 75 as she shot a 227 for the tournament. Chandra Alexander had a 77 in the final round while freshman Chaslyn Chrismer had her best day of the tournament with a 3-over par 75.
It is the ninth straight time this season that North Texas has finished in the top-five of a tournament and the sixth time that the Mean Green has finished either first or second.
North Texas now prepares for the Sun Belt Conference Championship April 18-20 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
