Kentucky posted a final round team score of two-under par, 286.

Kentucky was represented in the top 10 of the individual standings with sophomore Cylia Damerau who tied for seventh.

The Cham, Switzerland, native recorded even-par rounds during the first two rounds and followed that up with a two-under par, 70, on Tuesday to give her a three-day score of two-under par, 214. Damerau’s score of 214 marks her lowest 54-hole score as a Wildcat, surpassing her previous best of 215. She posted a team-best six birdies on the final day of play.

Finishing just a stroke behind Damerau was fellow sophomore Sarah Harris with a 54-hole score of one-under par, 215.

Harris, a Hermitage, Tenn., native put together back-to-back under par rounds to finish the tournament. She recorded four more birdies on the day to give her a final round score of two-under par, 70, as she just missed out on a top 10 finish and tying for 14th. Harris tied for the tournament lead with 13 birdies.

Freshman Haley Mills was the third UK player to record an even-par or better final round. Mills shot an even-par, 72, giving her a grand total of four-over par, 220 and tied for 38th. The Tyler, Texas, native played her most consistent round of the tournament, recording just one bogey to go with a birdie.

Breed shot a two-over par, 74, in the final round and six-over par, 222, for the competition. She tied for 50th.
