LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-With a 306 in the final round, the second best round only to the winners from Sam Houston State, Oral Roberts moved up to claim third overall at the UALR Women’s Golf Classic, Tuesday at the Diamante Country Club.  ORU finished with a 54-hole total of 947 (325-316-309), while SHSU won the event at 937 with a final-round 298 (324-315-298).

Alheli Moreno returned to the top of the ORU leader board with a final round 74 and an aggregate score of 231 (81-76-74), tying for fifth overall. It is just the second time in the last five in which Moreno has led the team and ties her best finish of the year. Alejandra Acosta was second on the team at 238 after shooting a 77 in the final round. Acosta carded a 238 (81-80-77) for the tournament and tied for 18th.
