In their second tournament in just four days, the K-State women’s golf team managed to secure a third-place finish out of 20 teams at the two-day Mountain View Collegiate golf tournament in Tuscon, Arizona.

The Wildcats put together a one-under par 287 in the third and final round on Saturday to improve to an even-par 864 on the tournament. The women finished eight shots behind the victors, Ohio State.

K-State found success throughout the tournament, placing three competitors in the top 25 individually.

Leading the way for the Wildcats was senior Olivia Eliasson, who finished the meet tied for 10th place with a two-under par 214. Sophomore Madison Talley and senior Carly Ragains rounded out K-State’s top-25 finishers, tying for 14th and 20th place, respectively.

K-State women’s golf will next take the green on April 10-11 at the SMU/DAC Invitational.
