Behind a first-place finish from senior Kendra Dalton, BYU women's golf took third at The Rebel Beach held at Spanish Trail Country Club on Tuesday.
"I thought we played solid today," BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. "We had the second-best score today and also posted the second-best score in round two, which shows a lot of toughness. I am really proud of Kendra (Dalton). She played solid today."
Dalton fired a final-round 72 to claim first place at The Rebel Beach. She finished the tournament at even par to record her second first-place individual finish of the season. Dalton also received medalist honors at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in October 2017.
The Cougars shot +2 on Tuesday to finish the tournament at +22 and take third. Host UNLV stayed atop the leaderboard, claiming the victory at +17.
Naomi Soifua recorded her second-straight top-10 finish at The Rebel Beach. She finished the tournament at +6 to tie for seventh place. The freshman also placed seventh in The Gold Rush earlier this month.
Rose Huang placed in the top 20 for the sixth time this season. Huang fired a 74 in round three to tie for 17th place at +9.
Annie Yang and Anna Kennedy tied for 32nd and 57th, respectively. Yang carded a 78 in the third round, while Kennedy shot even par (72).
The Cougars will participate in the Meadow Club Women's Intercollegiate from March 5-6, before they host the annual BYU at Entrada Classic on March 12-13, in Saint George, Utah.
