The Lady Patriot Golf Team posted a second round 332 in the Point Loma Nazarene University Super San Diego Championship at River Walk Golf Course in route to a sixth place finish.   Sophomore Mercedes Rios fires a five over par 77 in the final round on Tuesday to finish fourth place overall with a two-day total of 158.

The Lady Patriots improved on their first round total of 337 on day two on the ever-so-challenging River Walk Golf Course in San Diego, California, with a closing round 332, securing their fifth top-ten finish of the 2011-2012 season.

Rios led the way for the Lady Patriots with her two-round total of 158 (81-77) and tallied her fourth top-five individual finish of the season.  Rios led the entire field in two separate categories for the tournament – par three scoring (2.88) and total number of recorded pars (24).
