AUSTIN, Texas – University of Arkansas junior Lucy Nunn finished three-under and in second place at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Classic leading the Razorbacks to a third-place team showing in the final round Sunday in Austin, Texas. Nunn posted rounds of 70-70-73 for 213, three strokes behind with winner, Purdue’s Maria Hernandez who finished with a 210. Nunn is coming off her first career win last week at the LSU/Cleveland Classic. “Lucy played great all weekend,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor. “She’s worked so hard and it’s great to see that pay off on the golf course. She’s been a good leader and teammate and everything is coming together in her final semester of college golf.” Nunn opened the day plus-two on the front nine and dropped a stroke on the back as she played nearly even-par golf all day. Junior Kristin Ingram carded a three-over 75 in the final round also finishing in the top 10, in fact tying for 10th overall with a 220 (73-72-75). Sophomore Kelli Shean rebounded from a second-round 77 counting a one-over 73 Sunday and was 13th overall with a 221 (71-77-73) for Arkansas. Junior Alex Schulte struggled in the final round with an 80 and tied for 36th overall with 229 (74-75-80), followed by freshman Katy Nugent who dropped two strokes Sunday posting a 77 tying for 41st place overall with a 232 (76-79-77). Tiffany Phelps competed as an individual for the Razorbacks and tied for 74th overall with a 243 (81-80-82). As a team, the 19th-ranked Razorbacks were third, just eight strokes off the winner No. 14 Purdue who finished with an 872. The Boilermakers were low on Sunday posting a six-over 294 edging No. 2 Arizona State who was second with an 878 (287-291-300). Arkansas was third with an 880 (288, 294, 298), with No. 29 New Mexico (292-298-301=891) and No. 10 Duke (299-302-296=897) rounding out the top five team scores in the 17-team field.
