No. 13 Women’s Golf Finishes Second at The Ally

WEST POINT, Miss. – The No. 13 ranked LSU women’s golf team earned its second second-place finish of the season at The Ally in West Point, Mississippi. The Tigers shot a 7-under 857, the 11th best tournament score in LSU history.

“Obviously we would have liked to win the trophy today but I was very pleased with another second-place finish for the second tournament in a row to start the season,” said LSU women’s golf head coach Garrett Runion. “I felt like we got better each day. Everybody contributed. The last two days, with our highest scores being a 73 and 74, that just shows how good our depth is and that anybody can contribute any time.”

Sophomore Latanna Stone had the low round of the day with a 3-under 69, while senior Kendall Griffin shot 1-under 71. Freshman Carla Tejedo Mulet shot even and sophomore Ingrid Lindblad finished at 1-over and junior transfer Jessica Bailey was 2-over.

“I’m probably the most pleased that we made only one double bogey for the entire tournament as a team. No other team can say that. That was one of our goals – keep the big numbers off the scorecard and play the par fives well.”

Lindblad finished tied for third at 6-under 210, tied for the 14th best tournament score in LSU history. Tejedo Mulet ended up in a tie for seventh place at 2-under 214, recording the first Top-10 finish of her collegiate career. Stone ended up even for the tournament at 216 and tied for 12th place, while Griffin was 2-over 218 and tied for 22nd.

“Kendall played well this week. She grinded out some solid rounds for us. And Ingrid didn’t have her best stuff today, but she grinded back after a tough start. That’s what champions do and she contributed.

“Latanna played great and Carla is getting stronger every time she hits the course. This was just her second college golf tournament. She finished even par and felt like she left a lot on the table. So you know we got a good one with her. Now it is time to get rested and recharged before the last tournament of the Fall at Georgia.”

LSU is off until November 6-8 when they face off against another SEC-filled field at the Liz Murphey Fall Collegiate Classic in Athens, Georgia.
