ATHENS, Ga. - Ole Miss started off strong, but stumbled in the last round of the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic on Sunday, finishing in the No. 13 spot in the standings with a three-day score of 306-307-323--936.

The score tied the Lady Rebels with conference rival Arkansas, a team ranked ahead of the Lady Rebels in the region, which helps bolster the team's standing as the season closes.

Duke finally edged past Florida to claim the overall title with a score of 295-293-288--876 behind the strong play of Elizabeth Janangelo who won the individual title for Duke with a score of 72-69-69--210.

"This seems to be a trend for us, we played well the first two rounds with some solid golf, but weren't able to put it together in the third," said head coach Meghan Bolger. "The good news is that it was just one round, and we can get over that quickly. We have a week ahead of us to get ready for the SEC Championships and we are already focused on that."

Bernadette Luse and Nikki Hadd led the way for the Lady Rebels heading into the final round of play. Luse finished the tournament tied for 28th with a score of 72-76-78--226, while Hadd finished tied for the No. 47 spot with a 75-74-83--232.

Freshmen Laura Evans and Sarah Kate Cousart followed that up taking the next two spots. Evans finished the tournament tied for the No. 66 spot with a score of 79-78-81--238. Cousart carded a 82-79-81--242 to finish tied for the No. 72 spot.

Senior Kerrie Davis fired an 80-82-85--247 to finish tied for the No. 85 spot, while sophomore Lisha Beyer finished her first tournament for the Lady Rebels in 92nd with a score of 84-83-88--255.

Ole Miss will have more than a week to prepare for the SEC Championships, which will be hosted by the University of Kentucky in Lexington, April 18-20.
