COLUMBIA — Jess Meek's 10th-place finish led the Missouri women's golf team to its own 10th-place spot at the Southeastern Conference Championship, which ended Sunday.

The Tigers shot 49-over par for the tournament, held at the Greystone Golf & Country Club in Birmingham, Ala. The team's finish was an improvement from last year, when the Tigers finished last out of 14 teams.

Meek, a freshman from Carnoustie, Scotland, shot 75-73-74 (222) and finished 6-over par. It was the first time a Missouri golfer finished in the top-10 at a conference tournament since Taylor Gohn finished ninth at the 2011 Big 12 Championship.

Gohn, now a senior, and Michelle Butler, a sophomore, were the next-best scorers for Missouri. Gohn went 78-76-76 (230) and Butler went 75-77-78 (230) as the pair finished tied for 35th.

Vanderbilt won the tournament with a team score of 15-over par. Simin Feng, a freshman from Vanderbilt, took home individual honors. Feng shot 73-70-66 (209) and was the only competitor to break par, finishing 7 strokes under.
