HANAHAN, S.C. - The University of Miami women's golf team finished tied for 19th place Tuesday at the 10th annual Cougar Classic at Yeamans Hall Club. The Hurricanes concluded the season-opening tournament with a three-day tally of 42-over-par (300-301-305=906).
"The freshmen are playing like freshmen," head coach Rizzo said. "The team is struggling with some mental maturity on the course, but that's something we can turn around."

Moraira, Spain, sophomore Leticia Ras-Anderica paced the Hurricanes with a final-round 71, the lowest 18-hole score by a Miami golfer at the Cougar Classic.
