EVANSVILLE, Ind. --- The Tennessee State women's golf team placed 13th at the Braun Intercollegiate on Tuesday. The tournament was cut down to a one-day, 18-hole event after a heavy rain fall forced the cancelation of the first round.

Heavy winds and cool temperatures posed a problem for the field of 85 golfers. Savannah Szozda paced the Tigers with an 11-over, 83. The sophomore finished one stroke better than freshman Carson Racicih (84). Morgan Rood (91) and Paige Harlin (93) posted the final two scoring rounds for the Tigers. Haleigh Riley just missed scoring despite matching Harlin with a 93.

Dhani McDowell, playing as an individual, posted a 102 during the final round.
