LEWISVILLE, Texas – While it was pretty clear that the Gents were most likely going to finish third after three days, it was in the Ladies who were in a close battle for fourth.

The Ladies finished the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships in fourth with 326 points, edging out McMurry by 7.5. The Gents took third with 614 points, nearly 300 points clear of Colorado College.
