TULSA, Okla. – It was a rough start for the Oral Roberts University women’s golf team on Tuesday, but the Golden Eagles recovered to finish fifth overall at 954 (320-313-321) at the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational, hosted by Kansas State.

The top five teams all held position in the final round with Kansas (303-299-308—910) winning the team championship. The Jayhawk’s Meghan Potee took the individual championship as well at 224 (75-75-74).

For ORU, it was a top-10 finish for Alejandra Acosta, who carded the only sub-80 round of the day for ORU, finishing the tournament at 233 (79-75-79), tied for ninth overall. Shinwoo Lee started out five over par after four holes, but settled down and shot an 81 to finish second on the team and tied for 22nd overall at 239 (78-80-81).

Paola Aviles’ 244 (81-83-80) put her 37th overall and Paty Torres shot 246 (82-79-85) for the tournament to tie for 40th. Alheli Moreno rounded out the ORU finishes with an 81 in round three and a 54-hole total of 247 (87-79-81) to tie for 43rd.
