GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — WKU golfer Mary Joiner earned her third top-10 finish of the

The junior Joiner carded an even-par 71 in the final round at the 6,105-yard
Ridgeway Country Club, giving her a 54-hole tally of 215 (75-69-71). That ties for

State won the team title at 854, while Memphis’ Michaela Fletcher was the individual
champion at 205.
“It was a tough week,” WKU head coach Adam Gary said. “The course was set up very
challenging and the cool temperatures made it play long. I’m really proud of Mary’s
comeback after her slow start to get a top-10. We have some work to do before
conference in a couple of weeks.”
Junior Abigail Smee tied for 30th with a 228 (77-75-76) total, while freshman Lizzie
Loy was one shot back at 229 (75-78-76).
