COLUMBIA — A strong final round Tuesday helped the Missouri women's golf team capture a sixth-place finish in the Intercollegiate in Jacksonville, Fla. 

As a team, the Tigers closed with a 2-over-par 290 in the third round, the second best team score of the day. The score was the best of the tournament for Missouri, which posted scores of 295 and 299 in the first and second rounds, respectively. The Tigers finished the tournament with a 20-over-par 884.

Alina Rogers finished in a tie for 21st and led the Tigers with a tournament score of 219, which was 3-over par. Michelle Butler finished just behind Rogers in 24th with a total score of 220. 

"We were really proud of our players' mindset today," Missouri coach Stephanie Priesmeyer said. "Our team embraced the challenge and really had a lot of fun out there."

Missouri's performance in the third round shot them six spots up the leaderboard.

"We had some really nice golf shots this tournament during all three rounds, but today, we converted more of our birdie opportunities," Priesmeyer said.

Florida State won the tournament with a score of 851, which was 24 strokes ahead of second place East Carolina.

The Tigers are scheduled to compete next in the Southeastern Conference Championship on April 18 in Birmingham, Ala.,.
