RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico – University of Arkansas sophomore Emily Tubert fired a final round 74 finishing second and leading the Razorbacks to a fourth place team finish at the 10th Annual Lady Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, Tuesday.

Tubert shot 215 (71-70-74) finishing two strokes back of the winner, Marta Silva Zamora, of Georgia who won with a 213.

“I can’t say enough about Emily’s second place finish,” Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor said.  “She had a chance to win the golf tournament but struggled down the stretch but she just continues to put herself in a chance to win every week.  That’s what we need in a leader.”

Razorback sophomore Emma Lavy finished 21st overall with a 226 (75-71-80), followed by sophomore transfer Emily Podzielinski who tied for 25th with a 227 (75-78-74).  Junior Victoria Vela tied for 33rd overall with a 230 (76-80-74) and Meagan Roberts tied for 65 with a 241 (83-74-84).

“Pods stepped up big for us this week as well,” Estes-Taylor said.  “She counted every day in the four spot for us.  To shoot a 74 in the 25 mile per hour winds and rain today was awesome.  I’m excited for her because she just has a tremendous work ethic and I’m glad to see her reap the benefits of all the hard work.

“Victoria’s round today was also a stellar round of golf in these conditions,” Estes-Taylor said.  “She did a good job today getting in the house when we needed her.”

As a team, the 45th-ranked Razorbacks finished fourth overall with an 892 in the first event of the spring season.  Arkansas posted scores of 297-293-302, eight strokes back of come-from-behind winning No. 10 LSU.  The Tigers won the event with an 884.  Two-round leader No. 11 Georgia was second with 886 followed by No. 7 Oklahoma State with 890, just two shots better than Arkansas.

The rest of the field included No. 36 Northwestern with 899, No. 31 Purdue with 901, No. 28 Texas Tech with 902, No. 20 North Carolina State with 911, No. 38 Iowa State with 914 and No. 40 Kent State and SMU tied for 10th with 924.  Michigan, ranked 50th, was 12 with 928, followed by No. 33 TCU with 933, Nebraska with 935 and Penn State with 944.

“I think it was a very solid start for us heading into the spring,” Estes-Taylor said.  “The group really saw that we can play with the best teams in the country and we only lost by eight over three days to a couple of top 10 teams.  It’s a very good indicator of how much we improved over the break and how much more prepared we were.”

Spring action continues March 2-4, at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head Island, S. C.
