ISLANDERS POST 309 IN FINAL ROUND AT UALR

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Led by Courtney Peeler, who finished seventh overall as an individual, the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi women's golf team carded its best round of the spring as a team with a 309 in the final round at the UALR Women's Golf Classic.

Peeler shot a 74 in the final round to finish with a 222 (71-77-74) and climb to seventh for her best finish of the season. Last year, she was sixth at the Southland Conference Championship for her top individual finish. She was two shots away at UALR for her first top-five result.

The Islanders had two other players in the 70s on the final day. In her second tournament with the team, Katie Belser recorded her best collegiate round with a 77, while Ashley Watkins shot a 77 after missing the second round on Monday. Ryann White and Cecilia Jeon had rounds of 81 and 83, respectively. A&M-Corpus Christi finished 14th as a team as it rebounded from a second-round mark of 326 for its best round.

The host Trojans won the team title with a 54-hole score of 893 (305-288-300). They finished a shot ahead of Oral Roberts (299-292-303=894) and two ahead of Middle Tennessee State (291-297-307=895). ORU's Crystal Reeves was first as an individual with an 894.

The Islanders are off until competing at the Baylor Spring Invitational on April 12.
