By The Mercury

AUSTIN, Texas — The K-State women’s golf team finished seventh with a three-round team score of 64-over 904 following the final round of the Challenge at Onion Creek Tuesday at the par-70, 5,885-yard Onion Creek Golf Course.

Individually, the Wildcats were paced by junior Carly Ragains and senior Gianna Misenhelter, who placed in the Top 20.

Ragains carded a 12-over 222 for the tournament, finishing in a tie for 15th — leading the Wildcats for the first time this season. She has finished in the Top 20 in every tournament so far this season.

Misenhelter moved up two places by firing a 14-over 224 to finish the tournament at a tie for 19th.

K-State junior Oliva Eliasson rebounded from a poor second round to finish with a 19-over 229 and in a tie for 33rd. Separated by just one position on the leaderboard were K-State freshmen Madison Talley and Katherine Gravel-Coursol.

Talley shot identical scores in round one and two before improving a stroke to finish with a 26-over 236.

Gravel-Coursol, who improved 12 strokes from round one, finished one stroke behind Talley for 47th.

Texas Tech won the team title by firing a 28-over 868, three strokes ahead of Miami. The Red Raiders took home the individual title as well, as Elin Arvidsson won by four strokes with a 2-under 208.

K-State will be back in action in two weeks, Oct. 12-13, as it heads to Iowa City, Iowa, for the Diane Thomason Invitational at the Finkbine Golf Course.
