Tennessee women's golf team finishes last at Alamo Invitational

The Tennessee women’s golf team fell to last place to conclude the fall portion of its season at the Alamo Invitational in San Antonio.

The Lady Vols shot 17-over-par 305 Tuesday and were 35-over 899 for the event.

As was the case with most of the teams in the field, Tennessee’s best round was the opening round, when the Lady Vols shot 290 and had four rounds of 73 or better.

But the course toughened and Tennessee did not have a round lower than 75 in the final two rounds.

Chessey Thomas and A.J. Newell led the way for Tennessee on Tuesday with 3-over 75s. They also finished the tournament tied for the team lead at 7-over 223. That total was good to tie for 50th overall.

In her first collegiate start, former Farragut High School standout Teleri Hughes (78) finished the tournament with a total of 234 and five birdies.

LSU’s Lindsay Gahm won the individual title at 205 and Oklahoma won the team title at 840.

The Lady Vols return to action in February when they travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico for the Lady Puerto Rico Classic.
