ST. GEORGE, Utah – Freshman Emily Sumner scored a career-low 1-under 71 Tuesday, leading Santa Clara women's golf to a final-round 303 and ninth-place finish at the BYU Entrada Classic with a 915 team total.
The Broncos improved their team score by 12 shots over Monday's second-round, but it wasn't enough to make a run at the leaders. Host BYU overtook Kent State to claim the team title with an 864 total.
"Well, it wasn't our best golf today," head coach Krystal Kelly said. "Fortunately we still have three tournaments remaining."
Sumner was the highest finishing Bronco thanks to her low round. She tied for 23rd at 8-over 224, which was also a career-best for 54-holes.
"Emily played really well today," Kelly said.
Freshman Sarah Busey carded a final-round 76 to finish the event tied for 37th at 13-over 229.
Senior Kristin Le rebounded from her second-round 81 to score 77 today. She ended in a tie for 43rd at 231. Sophomore Chloe Wong tied for 52nd-place with her 234 total while Kyleigh Moreno ended with a 237.
After competing in consecutive events, the Broncos will take a week off before returning to the links at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Maui beginning on March 26.
