OPELIKA, Ala. -- The Denver women's golf team closed out its season with a 301 (+13) on the final day of the Auburn Regional as the Pioneers posted their best team score of the 54-hole event. Coupled with a pair of 304's from the opening two rounds of the regional, DU finished with a 905 (+45) to take 15th in the 18-team field.
Senior Sophie Newlove was the top Pioneer golfer in the final round, carding a 72 (E) in what would be her final collegiate round. She made a team-high four birdies and tied for 67th at the event played at the Saugahatchee Country Club. Freshman Trussy Li was the steadiest of the Pioneers throughout regional play, closing with a 74 (+2) to finish with a team-best score of 223 (+7) and tie for 41st.
