EAST LANSING, Mich. – Battling cold and windy conditions, the LSU women’s golf team wrapped up the 2018-19 season on Wednesday afternoon with at 10th place finish at the 2019 NCAA East Lansing Regional at the Forest Akers West Golf Course.

“Certainly not the finish we were looking for, but I am extremely proud of this team,” said LSU first-year head coach Garrett Runion. “A lot of people didn’t think we would make postseason or do much at conference and we did both.”

Sophomore Kendall Griffin led the Tigers for the second day in a row by shooting par, her seventh round of the season to shoot par or lower. In her NCAA Regional debut, Griffin finished tied for 21st overall in the individual standings.

Kathleen Gallagher capped her senior season with a round of 75, while junior Monica Dibildox and freshman Presley Baggett each shot 78 for the final team score.

“There were a lot of positives to take from this year,” continued Runion. “It was a little emotional for the team watching Kathleen play her last round as a Tiger. We’re definitely going to miss her and everything she brought to this team on and off the course.

“On the flip side, we have a young team that got to taste what postseason was like, realize they belong and can compete. They will use this as motivation to get better and be ready next year.”
