WEST POINT, Miss. – For the third tournament in a row, LSU has had its final round cancelled due to weather in the area. Storms entered the area overnight to cancel Day Three of the 2018 Magnolia Invitational at the Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi.

 

The Tigers finish the 36-hole event in a tie for fourth place with a score of 580. Senior Kathleen Gallagher and junior Monica Dibildox ended up tied for 13th place at even 144.

"I have never seen a Fall like this before with so much rain and so many rounds cancelled due to weather," said LSU head coach Garrett Runion. "Even with the shortened tournament , we had a lot of positives and are trending in the right direction.

Team Highlights:

  • The team posted its lowest rounds of the season with matching 290s in the First and Second Rounds of the Magnolia Invitational.
  • Kathleen Gallagher (Sr.) tied her career low with a 68 in Round 1 and recorded her best finish of the season.
  • Monica Dibildox (Jr.) posted her second top-15 finish of the season and has played at par or lower in half of her rounds this season.
