COLUMBIA, Mo. -- The Missouri State women's golf team put together its best round of the Johnie Imes Invitational on Tuesday (Oct. 2) as the Bears' top four scorers either tied or recorded their lowest total of the two-day tournament in the final 18 holes.

Among the 19-team field, Missouri State finished in a three-way tie for 13th place with UMKC and Colorado State, recording a 309-314-307--930. SMU took home the team title registering a 297-284-295--876 and was just 12-over-par collectively.

For the second event in-a-row, veteran Emma Clegg led the way for Missouri State. The senior from Blackburn, Lancashire, England carded a 75-76-75--226 and tied for 27th in the individual standings.

Right behind Clegg was freshman Ariel Tidwell, who has turned in a solid performance in back-to-back tournaments. Tidwell played her best round of golf on Tuesday with a 2-over-par 74, which included four birdies. She finished in a six-way tie for 30th after posting a 77-76-74--227.
