The Wildcats posted a score of 15-over par, 299 on Sunday for the second straight round.

No. 3 Duke won the team championship with a score of 10-over par, 862, while No. 14 Vanderbilt (+20), No. 5 Oklahoma (+33), No. 21 LSU (+33) and No. 13 South Carolina (+34) complete the top five. Alabama’s Stephanie Meadow took home the individual title at three-under par, 139.

“Overall the golf course got the best of us this week,” said Kentucky head coach Golda Johansson Borst. “We fought back today, but lost a few shots finishing the round, which hurt us. Despite the tough finish, we saw a lot of good things from our team and that will help us as we continue to move through the spring.”

Mills shot a 73 all three days of the tournament to finish tied for 12th with a score of six-over par, 219. The top 15 finish marks her second of the season and first since the season opening tournament. After posting just four birdies through the first two rounds, Mills recorded four alone on Sunday.

Sophomore Sarah Harris played her best golf of the weekend on Sunday, registering a three-over par, 74. Harris moved into a tie for 42nd place with a total score of 14-over par, 227. Sophomore Cylia Damerau was the third UK finisher with a score of 16-over par, 229 to tie for 49th. The Cham, Switzerland, native turned in a seven-over par, 78, in the final round.

Freshman Alessandra Walker finished the weekend tied for 65th at 19-over par, 232. Walker scored a five-over par, 76, on the final day of play. Rounding out the Wildcat lineup was senior Liz Breed who tied for 72nd with a 21-over par, 234. Breed shot a five-over par, 76, in the third round.
