The No. 25 Virginia women’s golf team finished third in the LSU Tiger Classic, a three-day tournament that took place at The University Club in Baton Rouge, La. No. 48 LSU, playing on its home course, won the tournament while No. 26 Houston placed second. NC State finished in a tie for third place with Virginia.

Junior Katharine Patrick was the top performer in the tournament for the Cavaliers, as she placed fifth individually — shooting seven over par for the whole tournament. The fifth-place finish is her best performance yet at Virginia. Patrick also had the best single round of any Cavalier, shooting an even par in the final round on Sunday. 

Other noteworthy Virginia performances were a 14th place finish for freshman Beth Lillie and a 25th place finish for junior Morgan Gonzales. The top four performers for each team get factored into the final team score, but junior Anna Redding and sophomore Julia Ford both tied for 31st overall individually for the tournament. Par for each round was 72, with a three-day par of 216. LSU senior Claudia De Antonio placed first individually, shooting one-under for the entire tournament. 

Tournament par for each team was 864, and Virginia shot 917 as a team for the tournament. The team improved each round however, shooting a 313 on Friday, a 306 on Saturday and finishing with a 298 on Sunday. The team will be off until Friday, April 6 when it plays  in the Bryan National Championship in Brown Summit, N.C.
