KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- An even-par 72 from senior Lauren Grogan (Columbus, Ohio/Bishop Watterson HS) highlighted final-round play for the University of Michigan women's golf team as the Wolverines finished 11th today (Sunday, Oct. 19) with a 913 total at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championships held at the Cherokee Country Club.

The Wolverines opened the three-day event posting a 311 in Friday's (Oct. 17) first round and found themselves in the 12th position as sophomore Julia Montgomery (Utica, Mich./Utica HS) had the day's top round with a two-over 74. U-M used a two-over 74 from freshman Kathy Lim (Langley, British Columbia/R.E Mountain Secondary) and three 75s to post its tournament-best 299 team total on the second day (Saturday, Oct. 18). However, Michigan remained in 12th with a 610 two-day tally.

Grogan tied a season best today with an even-par 72 in the final round, and Montgomery shot her second two-over 74 of the weekend, as the Wolverines closed with a 303 final-round team total to improve one position on the team leaderboard.

After a slow start, Grogan closed as the top-finishing Wolverines with a season-best 227 total (80-75-72), putting her in a tie for 37th. Lim (78-74-77) and Montgomery (71-81-74) each tied for 45th as they each had a season-best 229 totals. Making her first career start, freshman Megan Kim (Redondo Beach, Calif./Mira Costa HS) tied for 64th at 234 (79-75-80), while freshman Emily White (Saline, Mich./Saline HS) rounded out U-M's starting five, tying for 71st at 237 (81-75-71).

The Wolverines will waste little time before getting back to competition as they travel to Boulder City, Nev., Sunday through Tuesday, Oct. 26-28, for UNLV's Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown. The 54-hole event will serve as U-M's fall finale and will be held at the Boulder Creek Golf Club.
