The second round score of 307 was the lowest round recorded by an ECU women's golf team in school history.

"I am really proud of the entire team's performance at this tournament," said head coach Danny Key. "We had strong performances each day, but I am especially happy with how the team rallied and cut 10 shots off their score today and had the best round in school history."

The Tigers finished with a 624 (317-307) in the two-round tournament and were just 12 strokes behind both Henderson State and Southwestern Oklahoma State (T5th) from the Great American Conference. ECU finished above both Southern Nazarene (12th) and Harding (13th), also from the league.

Freshman Madelyn Lehr finished the tournament with a 146 (78-68) and tied for fifth individually. Lehr earned the lowest score in the second round out of 83 participants and cut 10 strokes off her total from day one.

Sophomore Molli Taylor finished tied for 35th with a 157 (78-79), while seniors Lindsey Lunceford and Shay Shaw both tied for 51st. Lunceford shot 79 and 83, with Shaw hitting 82 and 80.

Junior Sarah DeLong did not compete in round one and then shot an 80 on day two for ECU.

The Tigers will be in action again next week at the GAC Preview hosted by Southern Nazarene at the Lake Hefner South Golf Course in Oklahoma City.
