The Buffaloes shot a 15-over 307 in the final round at the 6,449-yard, par 73 Nanea Golf Club, to bring their three-day total to 908 (293-308-307). Arizona State finished one stroke behind CU for ninth and Washington State was two strokes back for 10th.
Ellie Gower was the top individual for CU and tied for the best individual round by Buff as she carded an even 73, which was her second even round of the event. She recorded three birdies and had three bogeys, and made par 12 times in the round. Her final score (225) tied her for 22nd overall, an improvement of nine positions from Tuesday.
Malak Bouraeda also recorded an even round with three birdies, three bogeys and made par 12 times, just like Gower. It was an eight-stroke improvement from her second round, where she carded an 81 after she recorded a 75 in the first round. Bouraeda also saw a nice improvement in her individual placing, moving up 19 spots into a tie for 30th with her 229.
Diane Baillieux carded a 6-over (79) in her final round to finish tied for 38th with a 231 (70-82-79). She made 14 pars in the round and had three bogeys. Natalie Vo also tied for 38th. She shot an 82 in the final round to go with her previous rounds of 80 and 69, Vo sank one birdie and made par eight times.
Hailey Schalk ended up tied for 52nd, finishing with a 238. She carded an 84 in her third round with one birdie and made par seven times.
"It was nice to see Malak play well today and Ellie had a nice round as well," head coach Anne Kelly said. "The hole locations were challenging today which even more clearly pointed out putting is not our strong point. We are going to have to work very hard on short game, especially putting over the off-season. We have a competitive team but work to do so we can be ready for the spring season."
USC's Katherine Muzi took home medalist honors, finishing the tournament with a 210. She led all three rounds, finishing 9-under (68-71-71). UCLA's Emma Spitz was one-stroke back at 211 (72-70-69).
