RALEIGH, N.C. — LSU’s Madelene Sagstrom won her second title of the season and Caroline Nistrup finished second to propel the seventh-ranked LSU women’s golf team to the NCAA championship with a tie for fourth place in the NCAA Raleigh regional.

LSU advances to the championship May 22-27 for the 13th time in school history and the 12th time for coach Karen Bahnsen.

LSU posted an 8-over 296 on Saturday for a 54-hole total of 24-over-par 888, while tying with Alabama. Three Southeastern Conference teams advanced as South Carolina won the regional at 13-over 877.

Others advancing were Northwestern, NC State and Campbell.

“They played so hard,” Bahnsen of her Lady Tigers. “It was big time windy and some of the stiffest wind was when we hit 11-14, where we struggled. The girls really did a good job of regrouping and being ready to play (Saturday). That was big for us. I’m so happy for the girls. This can make for a stressful week.”

Sagstrom posted a 2-under 70 in the final round to win wire-to-wire and going away with 8-under 208 (68-70-70). Nistrup finished at 2-under par 214 after a final round of 2-under 70 (71-73-70).

MEN’S TENNIS

Tigers blanked by Baylor: In Waco, Texas, after opening the NCAA tournament with a convincing win over UTSA on Friday, the LSU fell to No. 2 Baylor 4-0 on Saturday.

Despite the lopsided score, coach Jeff Brown was pleased with his team’s (18-9, 6-6 SEC) performance against an elite team like Baylor (23-5). After the Tigers took court one in doubles, Justin Butsch suffered a right hand injury on court three that forced him to finish the match with his left hand.

After Butsch’s injury, the Bears clinched the doubles point.

Despite close contests on courts one, two and three, the Bears were able to show off their depth with straight-set victories on courts four, five and six en route to the victory.

“Baylor is a better team than us right now,” Brown said. “They are too strong for us to overcome losing the doubles point as well as one of our strongest singles players.”

WOMEN’S TENNIS

Lady Tigers ousted by Texas Tech: In Lubbock, Texas, LSU got off to a fast start by winning the doubles point, but it wasn’t enough as No. 16 Texas Tech fought back to take four singles points to earn a spot in the NCAA regional final.

LSU finished the season at 20-11.

“We started off pretty strong with doubles but we started to tighten up a little bit at the end,” coach Julia Sell said. “In singles, the biggest difference was that no one on this team has gone this far into NCAA championships and been in this type of situation. We didn’t handle the magnitude of the situation and we didn’t execute. That makes it a very painful way to end a phenomenal season because we didn’t play our best.”

The Lady Tigers took the top two courts in doubles to earn the first point and take the momentum.

Vale Costa won the lone singles points for the Lady Tigers, with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Kenna Kilgo to give LSU a 2-1 lead.
