NORMAN, Okla. The University of Oklahoma women's golf team placed first at the Price's Give Em Five Intercollegiate with a total of 888 (+24) after recording a 290 in the final round Wednesday at the 6,319-yard, par-72 New Mexico State University Golf Course in Las Cruces, N.M. The team's final round was its best of the fall season and propelled OU to a two-stroke victory over second-place Baylor. The victory for the seventh-ranked Sooners (Golfweek) marked their first since last April at the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic in Norman.

Two Sooner golfers finished in the top five. Senior Lisa Meldrum continued her stellar fall play and finished tied for second place (3-over-par 219) after recording a season-low 69 Wednesday. Senior Hope Edge earned her best finish of the season after placing fifth with a total of 221 (+5). Sophomore Amparo Gala tied for 17th after carding a final-round 77 while junior Emily Milberger also tied for 17th with 226 (+10) total strokes. Freshman Jaclyn Stelzer tied for 29th after shooting a third-rond 75 for a three-day total of 229 (+13). Competing individually, freshman Alana Donaldson shot an 81 for the third consecutive day to finish tied for 61st.

The Sooners, who finished ahead of Big 12 foes Baylor, Texas Tech and Kansas State, will return to action Nov. 4-5 at the Hawaii Invitational in Honolulu, Hawaii.
