PALO ALTO, Calif. – The fall season for the No. 12 University of Arkansas women’s golf team came to a close on a rainy, windy Sunday in Palo Alto, Calif.
The Razorbacks battled tough conditions and a two-hour rain delay finishing 11th at the Pac 10-SEC Challenge hosted by Stanford at the Stanford Golf Course.
Arkansas posted a final round 307 finishing with an 891 (288-296-307).
"The finish was disappointing," Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor said. "But I think we learned a lot about ourselves this weekend. It was tough and we saw some things we need to work on. We’ll come back home and do that over the rest of the semester.
"There’s a lot of golf left in the season," Estes-Taylor continued. "The team remains focused and committed to our goals and our methods for reaching them."
