Final Results FRANKLIN, Tenn. -
The Alabama women's golf team finished eighth at the Mason Rudolph Women's Championship Sunday at the par-72, 6,337-yard Vanderbilt Legends Club with a 21-over-par 895.
The Crimson Tide shot its highest round of the season with a 13-over-par 301. UCLA won the event with a 14-under-par total of 850. Arizona State was a distant second at 6-over 870 with host Vanderbilt and Duke tied for third at 876. North Carolina State rounded out the top five at 880.
Crimson Tide senior Stephanie Meadow and sophomore Emma Talley were the bright spots for Alabama. Meadow finished fourth at 2-under-par 214 while Talley tied for 13th at 2-over 218. Talley was 2-under over the final 36 holes after opening with a 76.
"Stephanie played pretty well and Emma played well the last two days, but at the level we want to compete, it takes more than that," Alabama head coach Mic Potter said. "Our three, four and five players have to play better, keep competing and practice hard. We have to learn to manage our games around the golf course and save shots rather than throwing them away."
Sophomore transfer Janie Jackson shot 78 on Sunday to count as the Tide's third score and finished tied for 55th at 14-over 230. Redshirt freshman Cammie Gray's final-round 81 was dropped, and she finished tied for 72nd. Daniela Lendl, who posted a top 10 finish in the first event of the season, shot 79 in the last round to finish tied for 80th.
Alabama next tees it up at the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational on Oct. 11-13, at the Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill, N.C.
