KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Sophomore Abby Newton carded a 3-over 74 in final around action at the Mercedes-Benz Championship to lead the Ole Miss women's golf team to a 15th place finish on Sunday (Sept. 22). Newton was 5-over through the 36-hole tournament, which was shortened by around due to rain on Saturday.

In all, the Rebels tallied seven birdies on the round, with freshman Maria Toennessen carding a team-best three birdies on the front nine, including back-to-back birdies on holes seven and eight.

The Rebels posted a final round score of 309, giving them a two-day score of 609 which was 35-over par and placed them in 15th place.  In all, just six stokes separated 10th - 17th place in the field.
