HANAHAN, N.C. – Freshman Caroline Nistrup birdied two of the final four holes of the day to shoot even par 72 for a second straight day and finish her first collegiate tournament at 1-over 217 for the LSU Lady Tigers at the conclusion of the Cougar Classic Tuesday at the Yeamans Hall Golf Course.

LSU posted a 13-over 301 on the final day of the three-day 54-hole event and finished in 11th place at 23-over 887.

Nistrup birdied the par 4 first and par 3 third holes in the shotgun format of the final day, her 15th and 17th holes of the round to finish at even-par 72 for the second straight day. That gave the Denmark native a 54-hole total of 217 after strong rounds of 73, 72 and 72. Nistrup would finish her first event in a tie for 13th place.

On the final day of the season’s opening event, LSU also counted a 2-over 74 from junior Madelen Sagstrom, a 5-over 77 from senior Ali Lucas and a 6-over 78 from Lindsay Gahm. Sagstrom would finish in a tie for 30th at 4-over 220 (75-71-74) and Lucas a tie for 37th at 5-over 221 (71-73-77).

Sagstrom tied for second in scoring on the par 5 holes at 7-over par, while Nistrup played the holes in 5-under. Sagstrom had 11 birdies during the three-days of competition while Lucas led LSU with 38 pars.

Florida rallied to win the tournament, firing a 7-under 281 on the final round to finish at 5-under 859 (291-287-281), one shot better than second round leader Clemson which posted a 4-under 860 but a 5-over 293 in the final round (285-282-293). The host College of Charles was third at 3-under 861 and North Carolina State was the other team under par for 54 holes at 1-under 863.

Florida’s Anna Young came from behind to win the individual title with 5-under 211, finished the tournament with a 5-under 67 after opening rounds of 73-71. She was one shot better than three players – Ashlan Ramsey and Sloan Shanahan of Clemson and Brittany Marchand of North Carolina State – at 4-under 212.

LSU returns to Baton Rouge and will have a little over three weeks before its next event, the Schooner Fall Classic in Norman, Okla., beginning Oct. 5. Follow LSU women’s golf on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/LSUwomensgolf and on Twitter @LSUwomensgolf.
