Robbins leads ORU to third place finish

From ORU Sports Information

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-In fifth on the team after two rounds, senior Tiffany Robbins shot a 73 in the final round to lead ORU and tie for eighth overall at the MSU/Payne Stewart Memorial, hosted by Missouri State. Robbins’ low round helped the Golden Eagles remain in third place in the team standings, 11 shots clear of Wichita State. UALR won the team championship, and the Trojan’s Emelie Westrup took home individual championship.

It is the third time in her career that Robbins has led the team in scoring, with the other two coming during the Summit League Championships in 2011 and 2012. Robbins finished her tournament at 226 (79-74-73) to card the eighth-place finish.

Shinwoo Lee (76-72-80) shot 228 to claim 11th, while Alejandra Acosta (78-74-77) and Ashton Collier (77-75-77) each shot identical 77’s in the final round to remain tied for 12th place.

Alheli Moreno, who was second on the team after the first day, shot 86 in the final round to finish the tournament at 237 (77-74-86), tied for 33rd overall.

The Golden Eagles will have one more tournament during the fall season before taking a break for the winter. That event will be the Blue Raider Invitational in Murfreesboro, Tenn., on October 22-23.
