Tulsa, Okla. ­— Tulane combined for a 11-over-par 291 total Friday during the final round of the NCAA women’s golf championships for a 15th-place finish at Tulsa Country Club.

Tulane, which finished ninth a year ago, has put together arguably the best seasons in school history in back-to-back years. The Green Wave produced one of the lowest rounds in this year’s national championships with a 2-under 278 during Thursday’s third round, and sophomore Emily Penttila tied for the lowest round by an individual with a 5-under 65 Thursday.

“We came in with a goal today of finishing eighth or better, but we came up short after we got off to a slow start,” coach Lorne Don said. “But finishing as the 15th best team in the country doesn’t sound too bad, and we have the entire team coming back.”

Penttila was Tulane’s highest finisher in 26th place.

Thursday’s third-round leader, Duke, withstood a monster rally from Southern California for the national title. USC’s Doris Chen topped Duke’s Celine Boutier by two strokes to claim the individual title.
