STILLWATER, Okla. – Mandeville sophomore Elise Bradley posted a 2-over round of 74 to lead the LSU Lady Tigers as their 2013-14 season came to a close with the conclusion Saturday of the NCAA Central Regional at the Karsten Creek Golf Course.

Bradley’s 74 went with rounds of 76-81 to finish 54-holes at 231, 15-over par. She finished with a group tied for 51st place, a jump of 31 places from the start of the day.

The Lady Tigers posted rounds of 309-313-314 to finish the event in 20th place at 72-over par 936. The top eight teams advanced to the NCAA Championships in Tulsa in 10 days.

UCLA won the event at 11-over 875 with Alabama second (+28, 892), followed by Miss. State (893), California (894), Ohio State (899), Kansas (899), Arizona (901) and Florida (902). Florida won a playoff with host Oklahoma State as both teams tied for the eighth and final qualifying spot at 38-over par.

On the final day, LSU also counted a 77 from freshman Caroline Nistrup, an 80 from senior Lindsay Gahm and an 83 from junior Madelene Sagstrom.

The Lady Tigers, while not winning a team tournament title this season, did have success as two golfers – Sagstrom and Gahm – won individual titles and Sagstrom and Nistrup also lost other tournaments in playoffs after tying for first after 54 holes. Sagstrom and Nistrup were named first-team All-SEC and Nistrup was named to the SEC Freshman team.

LSU qualified for post-season regional play for the 20th time in the last 22 years.
