Rios recorded the low round of the day on Tuesday with her exceptional, even par round of 72.  “I am very proud of Mercedes as she was able to bounce back from her first round,” stated Head Golf Coach Kenny Trapp.  “We played a lot better as a team today – however, we still have a lot of room for improvement,” added Trapp.

Freshman Sydney Williams struggled on Tuesday with her final round 81 but was able to secure an eighth place overall finish to help the Lady Patriots.  Williams records her sixth top-10 finish on the season in just eight tournaments.  Freshman Macie Seeker and Sophomore Erin Barrington posted final round 80’s on Tuesday as they finished 22nd and 28th overall, respectively.  Freshman Abbey Bradley rounded out the day for the Lady Patriots with a final round 86 and a 39th place overall finish.

The Lady Patriots will be back in action March 25-26 as they travel to Fort Smith, Arkansas, to compete at Hardscrabble Country Club.
