This past weekend the SMU women's golf team traveled to Oxford, Miss. to participate in the Rebel Intercollegient Tournament. The Mustangs finished with 925 and fell just short of coming in ninth place.
The tournament consisted of 54 holes and three rounds played over a course of three days.
Sixteen teams participated in the event including four C-USA rivals, which included University of Tulsa, University of Central Florida, Southern Mississippi, and Memphis.
Amongst those teams three of the four placed ahead of SMU. Tulsa came in second, Southern Miss sixth, and UCF 12th.
The tournament champion was Tennessee with 863 and second place was Tulsa with 893. Mississippi, the host of the tournament, finished fourth and had three of their five players finish in the top six. Individual champion was Meghan Chapman of Tulane with 224.
In an individual play for the Mustangs, Felicia Espericueta finished the weekend with 227 to come in 29th and Elizabeth Wells was not too far behind her with 228 to put her in at 34th place. Maria Elena Villamil, Melanie White and Caitlin Pisciotta also participated.
This was the Mustangs fourth spring tournament and their next one is in Waco, Texas for the Baylor Invitational.
