NORMAN, Okla. - The Pepperdine women's golf team improved its score for the second straight day, but it wasn't enough to lift the Waves out of a 10th-place finish at the Schooner Fall Classic on Monday.
Pepperdine shot a 7-over 287 to wrap up play at the par-70 Belmar Golf Club and finished with a total of 889 (309-293-287).
Several Waves turned in strong final rounds. Sophomore Marissa Chow (Honolulu, Hawaii/Iolani HS) and senior Grace Na (Alameda, Calif./Alameda HS) each fired 1-under 69s, and senior Liv Cheng (Auckland, New Zealand) had an even-par 70.
Chow led the Waves for the second time in three tournaments this fall. She tied for 16th place overall at 218 (77-72-69) and had a total of five birdies during her round.
Cheng (79-72-70) and Na (74-78-69) both tied for 25th place at 221. Na was 2-over at the turn, and then had birdies on four of her final six holes. Cheng had three birdies on the day.
The Waves opened the 2013-14 season with back-to-back victories, winning New Mexico's Dick McGuire Invitational and the Golfweek Conference Challenge last month. The Waves' fourth and final fall tournament is the Stanford Intercollegiate on Oct. 25-27.
