Chandler, Ariz. - The North Dakota women's golf team wrapped up its first season in the Big Sky with a 10th-place finish at the league championship. Freshman Abbie Mozzetti was the top performer for UND, finishing 37th with a 54-hole score of 238 (+22).

Mozzetti led UND in both the first and third rounds, closing the tournament with a 79 (+7) as the Green and White shot a 333 (+45) on Tuesday at the Ocotillo Golf Resort.

Mozzetti had 13 pars and a birdie in her final round and two triple bogies prevented her from posting one of her top rounds of the season.

Three seniors also played their final collegiate rounds for UND as Robin Hutchinson led the trio with an 82 (+10) on the final day. Megan Grozdanich and Shantel Montgomery both shot 87's to conclude their careers.

"I want to thank our seniors for the hard work they put into this program and I'm proud of how they developed as young woman both in the classroom and on the course," UND head coach Natalie Martinson said. "They were in a unique position going through the transition to Division I and I'm glad they were able to experience an event like this before their careers ended.

"I know they'll take a lot of good memories and friendships away from their years at UND." 

Grozdanich shot a 38 (+2) on the back nine, which she played in just eight-over par for the tournament, while Montgomery's score was her best of the 54-hole event.

Sophomore Amanda Fairweather also equaled her best round of the tournament with an 85 (+13).

Northern Arizona and Portland State entered the final round tied a top the team standings, but the Lumberjacks were the better team on Tuesday, pulling away to win their seventh Big Sky title and first since 2009. NAU finished with a team score of 882 (+18), while the Vikings finished four shots back (886, +22).

Southern Utah and Northern Colorado tied for third with scores of 901 (+37) and Sacramento State rounded out the top five (904, +40).

Paige Crawford shot her second-consecutive round in the 60's to run away with the medalist honors. Crawford, who equaled the single-round record with a 67 (-5) today, finished with a Big Sky Championship record score of 216 (-8) and was seven shots ahead of Northern Arizona's Kaitlen Parsons and Portland State's Britney Yada.
