Sophomore Megan Chapman shot a second-round two-under-par, the first sub-par round of her career, but the Rams finished a disappointing 11th in the Heather Farr Invitational that ended Tuesday.

"Megan stepped up and played well," said Head Coach Angie Hopkins. "Today was a hard day, the weather was a challenge. That's what we need from her and Chelsea [Benton]."

Chapman finished 23rd individually with a final score of 228, 12-over-par. Benton finished in a tie for 33rd individually, shooting 230.

Freshman Kelly Brotherton shot the Rams' best final round score with a 76 and finished 45th overall.

The University of Denver won the tournament overall with a final team score of 884.

Hopkins said the team didn't do as well as they hoped but that with over a week before their next tournament, the girls' results will improve.

"Some of the girls are in the middle of changing their swings right now which makes it really difficult," Hopkins said. "Fortunately we have a week and a half to prepare for the next tournament."

The Rams will get that week off and be back out on the greens Oct. 17 in the Give Em' Five Tournament in N.M.
