Lions finish fourth at Northeastern State Classic – LINK

 

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Texas A&M University-Commerce women's golf team completed its first event of the 2017-18 season in fourth place, only three strokes back of the lead at the 19th Annual Northeastern State Classic.

 

The Lions shot 617 (305-312, +41), the sixth-best 36-hole tournament score in school history. A&M-Commerce was behind Southwestern Oklahoma State, Henderson State, and Missouri Western State. SWOSU won the event in a sudden death playoff.

 

A&M-Commerce was led by junior Lauren Leslie, who shot a total of 151 (+7) after a 2-over par 74 in Tuesday's round to finish in a tie for fourth place. She had four birdies in the final round of the tournament.

 

Anya Anders tied for eighth at 152 (+8, 74-78), only one stroke back of Leslie.

 

A trio of Lions making their collegiate debuts were tightly packed. Sophie-Charlott Hempel tied for 28th at 159 (+15, 81-78), Christen Simons tied for 32nd at 160 (+16, 78-82), and Paige Lee Garris tied for 37th at 161 (+17, 76-85).

 

The Lions will be back on the course next Monday and Tuesday at the Fort Lewis Skyhawk West Regional Preview in Durango, Colo.
