Texas totally ran away from the rest of the field, taking the top four medalist honors. But, Yi-Tsen had a very respectable tournament. Although not a huge deal, she did have a little pressure on her coming up #18, as she needed a par to keep the team from slipping into a tie with Iowa State. And, 7th place out of nine teams is better than it sounds, as except for Texas, there wasn't a whole lot of separation between 2nd and 9th places. Texas finished 37 strokes ahead of 2nd place Baylor, and KU was only 14 strokes back from there.
