OU women's golf takes second

Sooner golf recorded a solid outing in its final regular season tournament of the season, taking second place in the 31st annual Susie Maxwell Berning Classic. The Sooner women gave up a two-round lead over Baylor, and allowed the Bears to take over the first place slot.

The second-place finish was somewhat overshadowed by a couple individual performances for the Sooners. Senior Kendall Dye took first place individually in the tournament, scoring a 225 (+9), and was followed in second place by fellow Sooner Ellen Mueller 229 (+13).

Dye said she was excited to win, but at least somewhat disappointed in the team finish.

I really wanted the team to win as well, but we still can’t be upset with a second place finish,” Dye said. “The conditions were tough, but it gave each one of us an experience that we can take with us into the future.

The future for the Sooner women will be the Big 12 Championship, which will be held in Lubbock, Texas, April 24-26.
