Goodyear, Ariz. -- Senior captain Alexis Guggisberg turned in the top score for the North Dakota women's golf team in final-round action at the Bobcat Desert Invitational Tuesday, posting a 79 (+7) in her third loop around the Golf Club of Estrella.
Sophomore Jenna Janu and freshman Ally Rogers were just one stroke off that pace as the duo both carded an 80. Janu led the team with a pair of birdies in her final round, but did not factor in the individual race after having her second-round score nullified when she signed for the wrong score.
Guggisberg and fellow captain Dani DelGreco were the top two scorers in the 54-hole event for UND, who now turns its attention to the Big Sky Championship that will be played next weekend in Boulder City, Nev.
Guggisberg finished tied for 51st with a 242 (+26) total, while DelGreco was one stroke behind her at 243 (+27). Janu had the lowest round of the tournament for the Fighting Hawks after shooting a 76 in her first 18 holes on Monday.
The Fighting Hawks finished with 964 (+100) total and finished 12th in the 14-team field that featured seven other Big Sky programs. Cal Poly (878; +14) ran away with the team title, outdistancing second-place Portland State (893; +29) by 15 strokes.
Cal Poly's Sophie Bergland (212; -4) maintained her lead and captured medalist honors by four strokes after shooting a 70 (-2) in final-round play.
