Harding Women's Golf sets record in Oklahoma

From Harding University

Harding senior So-Yun Kim shot an even par 71, and the 36th-ranked Lady Bisons matched the best round in program history to finish sixth at the University of Central Oklahoma Classic on Tuesday.

Harding broke the school record for a two-round tournament with a 601, seven strokes better than the previous record of 608, also set at the UCO Classic in 2011.

Kim shot her second career round of par or better to finish with a school-record tying two-round score of 147. Emily Plyler shot 147 in 2011 at the Bison Fall Golf Classic. Kim placed ninth overall, her 14th career top-10 finish.

St. Edward's was tied with Dallas Baptist for the tournament lead after round one, but shot 292 in Tuesday's second round to win the tournament at 588, six strokes better than second-place Southwestern Oklahoma State. Dallas Baptist was third.

Harding sophomore Emily Plyler tied for 13th overall, shooting 76-73—149. Sophomore Brittany Marquez tied for 17th at 150, and senior Becca Godman tied for 39th at 155.

Anna Arrese Cortadellas of Oklahoma Christian was the individual medalist. She shot 1-over 143 to win by one stroke.
