SAN ANGELO, Texas -- A rain and lightning delay did little to slow down A&M-Commerce as four Lions shoot in the 70s, helping the Lions jump two spots and finish fifth at the Angelo State Concho River Classic. A&M-Commerce posts a season-low 16-over 304 over the final 18 holes, closing out the tournament with a 42-over 618.
Junior Chantry McMahan once again led the A&M-Commerce charge, notching her second top-five showing in as many weeks. McMahan's 4-over 76 was three strokes off her opening round 73, but it was good enough to keep her tied for fifth with a 5-over 149.
She finished seven shots better than junior teammates Haley Green and Sara Diaz, both of whom tied for 27th overall with a 12-over 156. Green shaved two shots off her opening round to post a 5-over 77 while Diaz bettered her opening round by four strokes, shooting a 4-over 76.
Fellow junior Chelsea McCoy highlighted the day for A&M-Commerce as she shot a team-low 2-over 75, improving on her opening round total by nine strokes, settling in tied for 34th overall with a 15-over 159. Freshman Ali Leasor rounded out the Lion scorecard with a 22-over 166 after posting a 12-over 84 over the final 18 holes.
A&M-Commerce began the day in seventh place and made its move early, leapfrogging host Angelo State and fellow LSC rival Incarnate Word to settling into its first top-five finish of the season. The Lions finished six shots better than the Rambelles (48-over 624) and seven shots ahead of Western Washington (49-over 625), while besting the eighth-place Cardinals (50-over 626).
St. Edward's captured the team title with an 18-over 594, shooting a pair of 297s over the two-day tournament and defeating second-place Midwestern State (27-over 603) by nine shots. Fellow LSC opponent Tarleton State finished third with a 30-over 606, followed by fourth-place Newman (37-over 613) with the Lions rounding out the top-five.
A&M-Commerce will now have a little time off before returning to the links at the Central Oklahoma Broncho Classic in Edmond, Oklahoma. The 36-hole tournament gets underway at the Lincoln Park East Course on Monday, October 1st and concludes on Tuesday, October 2nd.
