HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The fourth-ranked University of Arkansas women’s golf team fired a final round 295 and tied for seventh place at the Third Annual Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head Island, S.C., Sunday.

The Razorbacks posted their best score of the three-day event with the 11-over 295 in the last round.  It was one of the lowest scores of the day.

“We hung tough today,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor.  “It is not quite where we want to finish but we did a lot of good stuff. There is a lot of good things we can come home and work on.  That is the exciting part just identifying areas we can improve and grow.  This group is resilient and they fought for three rounds.  We are going to come back and tidy up a few things and get ready for LSU.”

Sophomore Gabriela Lopez emerged as the low finisher for the Razorbacks.  The Mexico City, Mexico, native finished 25th overall with 222.  Her weekend included rounds of 69-81-72.

Freshman Summar Roachell had her best collegiate weekend of her career tying for 31st overall.  The Conway, Ark., native shot 78-69-77=224.  Senior Emily Tubert was consistent all week. The Burbank, Calif., native carded 75-75-75=225 and tied for 36th overall.

Sophomore Regina Plasencia tied for 42nd overall with rounds of 81-75-71=227 and senior Emma Lavy rounded out the Arkansas scored tying for 68th with 75-81-77=233.

“I was excited for Regina – she got better every day,” Estes-Taylor said.  “I think we have her moving in the right direction.  Gaby birdied two of her last three and everyone showed some good things out there today.”

Third-ranked Duke won the event going wire-to-wire and finishing with 863.  The rest of the field included No. 14 Vanderbilt with 872, No. 5 Oklahoma and No. 21 LSU with 885, No.13 South Carolina with 886, No. 20 Wake Forest with 887, and No. 29 North Carolina tied with the Razorbacks for seventh with 892.  Reigning SEC champion and eighth-ranked Alabama was ninth with 892 followed by No. 7 Stanford and No. 25 Auburn tied for 10th at 899, No. 6 Arizona State with 901, No. 28 Virginia with 903, Tennessee with 094, No. 24 Kentucky with 905, No. 48 Georgia wit 914 and No. 17 Furman with 920.

The Razorbacks return to action March 21-23 traveling to Baton Rouge, La., for the LSU Golf Classic.
