Temple, TX— The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women’s golf team made its home course advantage pay off as the Lady Crusaders ran away with the American Southwest Conference Tournament Tuesday afternoon at Wildflower Country Club in Temple. The UMHB women fired rounds of 321 and 328 for a 649 total to finish 67 shots ahead of second-place McMurry University (351-365=716).

Hardin-Simmons was the only other full team in the tournament and the Cowgirls took third place with a 383-399=782.

The UMHB women have now won four straight ASC Tournament Championships and gave head coach Darla Kirby her fourth straight ASC Women’s Golf Coach of the Year award.

Tuesday’s final round was played under overcast skies on the 5,822-yard, par 72 course at Wildflower.

UMHB’s Carrie Franciskovic won the individual title with rounds of 78 and 80 for a 158 total. It is the first conference championship for Franciskovic and she had to edge out teammate Amanda Tuskey by one stroke to win. Tuskey fired a 78-81=159 to take second place.

McMurry’s Brittany Cary shot 81-83=164 to finish third, UMHB’s Emily Breedlove took fourth place with an 82-83=165 and UMHB’s Lauren Clemens finished fifth with an 83-84=167. Those five players were named to the ASC All-Conference First Team.

The ASC All-Conference Second Team was made up of Theresa Ashorn (88-82=170, T-6th) of Texas Lutheran, UMHB’s Julie Solomon (86-84=170, T-6th), LeTourneau’s Lisa Kok (87-88=175, T-8th), McMurry’s Amy Morgan (85-90=175, T-8th) and Randi Reed of McMurry (83-94=177, 10th place).

There were a total of 18 golfers representing five schools in this year’s field.

The ASC Tournament Champion does not receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III National Championship. National Championship bids are awarded on a regional basis.
