FRISCO, Texas- Oral Roberts finished as the runners up at the 2013 Southland Conference Championship, moving up one spot in the final round with a 302, giving them a 54-hole total of 898 (299-297-302). Lamar bested the Golden Eagles by two shots on Wednesday and took home the championship at 891 (299-292-300). Sam Houston State had the best final round of the group and tied ORU at 898 (299-301-298).

The Golden Eagles finished the tournament with all five players in the top 15 individually, the only team to be able to stake that claim. The 898 scored by ORU was the best tournament finish of the year, and ties for the sixth-best in school history.

Despite posting her first round over par, Shelby Hardy of Sam Houston State ran away with the individual title at 212 (68-71-73), a six-shot victory over second place.

Alheli Moreno remained atop the standings for ORU, finishing tied for fifth overall with a 222 (75-73-74), while Paola Aviles shot 224 (76-74-74) to finish 10th. It tied the best finish of the year for Moreno and was the lowest score and best finish for Aviles.

Shinwoo Lee (72-77-77) finished in a tie for 12th overall at 226, while Alejandra Acosta (76-76-77) and Tiffany Robbins (76-74-79) tied for 15th at 229.

ORU will lose just one senior in Robbins, having played this year with five freshmen on the eight-person roster, including three of the five who competed in the SLC Championship.
