After two rounds of play to conclude the Claud Jacobs Intercollegiate on Monday, the Ball State women's golf team finished in a tie for sixth place out of 17 teams.

Ball State's final score was 944, tying with Eastern Michigan. Texas State won the tournament with a 912, beating second-place Kansas by eight strokes.

Seniors Brittany Kelly and Rachael Pruett led the Cardinals with scores of 227 each. Their scores were low enough to tie for third individually.

Junior Katie Windlan followed with a 243 for Ball State, while sophomore Autumn Duke scored a 247 and freshman Meghan Perry hit a 268.

Ball State improved its placing after being in ninth place after Sunday's first round. The second round was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, but darkness forced the round to be moved to the second day.

The Cardinals' next tournament will be March 4 to March 6, when they compete in the Rio Verde Collegiate Invitational in Rio Verde, Ariz.
