May 28, 2003

American Southwest Conference women's golf champion University of Mary Hardin-Baylor saved its best round for last, carding a 327 on the final day to finish second at the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships for a second straight year.

The Lady Crusaders' efforts topped a trio of Top 15 finishes for American Southwest Conference golf teams at the national tournament. The McMurry University women's team finished 10th at the Women's Championships while ASC men's champion University of Texas at Dallas placed 14th in the NCAA-III Men's Golf Championship.

Mary Hardin-Baylor collected its third straight Top 4 NCAA-III finish and second consecutive runner-up trophy. UMHB placed fourth in 2001 and second in both 2002 and 2003.

Two ASC women's golfers claimed NCAA All-America honors with Top 10 individual finishes: Emily Breedlove of UMHB and Brittany Cary of McMurry. Breedlove fired a final round of 79 to finish sixth with a 327 (74-86-88-79). Cary was three strokes behind Breedlove, carding a 330 (93-91-77-79) to place seventh in the championship.
