ATHENS, Ga. - Junior Lindsay Gahm posted her best finish as an LSU golfer Sunday as she finished in fifth place Sunday in the Liz Murphey NCAA Fall Preview.

Gahm had a consistent weekend with rounds of 73-72-71 around the University of Georgia Golf Course with late birdies on the seventh and eighth holes (her 16th and 17th of the round) Sunday to get under par and back to even for the 54-hole event.

Gahm's 216 total was just three shots out of the individual win by Mary Michael Maggio of Texas A&M at 3-under 213 (72-74-67). Gahm's previous best LSU finish was a tie for17th.

Also having a good final day and tournament was sophomore Madelene Sagstrom as the Swedish star flew back from Turkey after finishing competing for her country in the Women's Amateur Team championship and then one week later firing even par 72 in the final round to finish at 3-over 219, getting a tie for 16th place.

LSU as a team moved up to 14th on the final day, tying with Tulane at 39-over 903 after a tournament best round of 10-over 298. LSU also counted a 77 from Katrina Hegge and a 78 from Nadine Dreher. North Carolina rallied from third to win the tournament after a 2-over 290 score on the final day to finish at 12-over 876, four shots ahead of Alabama at 880 and first-and-second round leader Auburn in third, tied with Southern Cal, at 19-over 883.

It will be short turn around for the Lady Tigers before they return to play this coming Friday in the Lady Tar Heel event in Chapel Hill, N.C.

The University of Georgia Golf Course will be the site of the NCAA Women's Golf Championships in May 2013.
