LINCOLN, Neb. -- Kyla Clancy of Rocky Mountain College finished in a four-way tie for 15th place on Friday following the final round of the NAIA women’s golf championships at Wilderness Ridge.

The sophomore from Park City closed with a 3-over par 75 and wound up at 18-over 306 (76-77-78-75) for the 72-hole event. It was her first national tournament for the Battlin’ Bears.

"She had a great, great week," Rocky coach Aaron Pohle. "From start to finish her short game was really solid."

Clancy finished 15 strokes behind individual champion Alazne Urizar of SCAD Savannah, Ga., who ended up at 3-over 291 (76-71-73-71) in winning by one shot.

Rocky’s team didn’t make the cut on Thursday, finishing 23rd out of 27 teams. Clancy, who started the final day in a tie for 18th, earned the right to continue playing because she was among the top 40 individuals.

"She proved she is one of the better players," Pohle said. "As a sophomore that's a pretty exciting thing."

Top-ranked SCAD and defending champion Oklahoma City tied for the championship with scores of 1,209. Oklahoma City repeated as champion in a one-hole playoff.

Lewis-Clark State of the Frontier Conference was 13th overall at 1,291.
