PALM DESERT, Calif. -- Senior Haily Abel bounced back from a tough first day to lead the North Dakota women's golf team in final-round action at the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate Sunday. Abel led the Fighting Hawks with a 79 (+7), while Jenna Janu and Ashlyn Guggisberg both shot 81's to lead an improved effort at the Classic Club.

Janu was the top finisher for UND, tying for 39th at 241 (+25) as she helped the Fighting Hawks improve their team score by 12 strokes in the third round to finish with a 324. Guggisberg finished solo 49th at 244 (+28).

Abel opened the tournament with a 90-91 start before closing with a 79 that equaled Janu's first round for low score of the event by a Fighting Hawk.

Santa Clara's Kristin Le closed with a 69 (-3) to capture medalist honors thanks to the low round of the tournament.
