Womens Golf Finishes Third At Lady Puerto Rico Classic
February 24, 2004
The Oklahoma women’s golf team completed their first tournament of the spring and finished in third place with a three-round total of 888 at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic.  The Sooners’ tournament total ties for their team low this year.  The 15th-ranked Oklahoma team recorded a final-round 299 to finish behind Duke (ranked No. 1) and Georgia (No. 7). 
The Sooners competed against a 15-team field that included 10 top-25 teams. The teams played at the 6,00-yard, par-72 Del Mar Country Club in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 
For the fourth time this season Oklahoma had four of its golfers finish in the top-25.  Sophomore Amparo Gala, the Sooners’ top-performer, carded a final-round 74 (+2) to finish in eighth place with a career-best 220.  One stroke behind was junior Emily Milberger who tied for ninth after carding a third-round 73 (+1). 
Senior Hope Edge tied for 13th after recording a final-round 72 (E) for a final score of 222.  Senior Lisa Meldrum was in the top five heading into the final round, but shot an 81 (+9) in the final round to finish tied for 25th with a tournament total of 226.  Freshman Jaclyn Stelzer finished in 58th place after carding an 80 (+8) for a total of 241.
OU returns to action March 7-9 at the Lady Gator Invitational in Gainesville, Fla.
