    ST. GEORGE, Utah – The University of Colorado women’s golf team shot 10-over par here Saturday, posting its best round of the tournament as the Buffaloes finished the spring season in 12th place at the NCAA Regional Championships.

    Colorado climbed three spots on the leaderboard and recorded a 66-over par 918 (316-308-294) final team score. The Buffs were 20 strokes short of a top six finish, which is needed to advance to the NCAA Championships.

    “The team played a lot better today,” said Colorado head coach Anne Kelly. “They played much more like themselves. I think everybody is a bit disappointed because we had high expectations and I think we had a legitimate shot, but it just wasn’t our week.”

    Sophomore Esther Lee’s quest to advance to the Championships as an individual came up just short, after she lost in a five-player playoff on the third playoff hole. Emily Williams from Middle Tennessee won the playoff on that third hole to earn the final spot to advance. Lee wrapped up her first season as a Buffalo in a tie for 13th place at the meet. She shot 223 or 10-over par to earn her 10th top 20 finish of the year, which is tied for second most all-time in a single season. In 10 of 11 meets during 2014-15, she placed 14th or better. Lee finished the spring with a school record 72.25 stroke average, breaking the previous mark set by Alex Stewart in 2011-12.

    Glad the team kept on playing hard and did its best in the final round. Too bad Ms. Lee just missed out on qualifying with a playoff loss.

    With no seniors on this year's team, and the two top ranked players being a freshman and sophomore, things should only get better next year.
