DALLAS, Texas - The Missouri State women's golf team recorded its best round of the SMU/Dallas Athletic Club Invitational on the final day of action. The Bears, who were without sophomore Megan Thompson on Sunday (April 7), posted a 325 to finish 14th in the competitive 15-team field.

Missouri State (337-330-325) bettered its second-round score by five strokes as three of the four Bear golfers finished with their best 18-hole total of the tournament.

In the final trip around the course at the Dallas Athletic Club, it was freshman Ariel Tidwell who had a standout performance on Day 3. Tidwell's 5-over-77 was a tournament low for the Bears and tied for 21st during Sunday's action. Tidwell (85-81-77--243) was Missouri State's highest finisher at the SMU/Dallas Athletic Club Invitational, tying for 46th overall.

Fellow freshman Lindsey Eisenreich added on another weekend-best for the Bears, carding an 82. Eisenreich (87-83-82--252) was MSU's next highest finisher in a tie for 65th.

Senior Emma Clegg rebounded nicely from a 90-85--175 start by concluding the tourney with a 7-over-79. Overall, Clegg moved up in the individual standings to 69th place.

Rounding out Bears' lineup for Sunday was sophomore Chiara Citterio (t-71st), who finished the tournament at 84-88-87--259. Sophomore Megan Thompson withdrew from the final round after leading the Bears on Friday and Saturday with a pair of 9-over-81s.

Taking home both the team title and medalist honors was No. 19 Oklahoma State. The Cowgirls (305-295-296--896) closed out the tournament with low rounds on both Saturday and Sunday. Leading the way for OSU was freshman Julie Yang, who distanced herself from the rest of the field with seven-stroke victory (70-68-72--210).
