The Bison were tied for sixth place after the first two rounds Monday, shooting rounds of 320 and 314, but battled back Tuesday in the final round to move up two spots. NDSU shot a 312 in the final round and finished at 946, one shot ahead of Oral Roberts. Kansas, the host of the tournament, won the 13-team event with a 906.
NDSU freshman Hailey Boner shot a season-low round of 77 on Tuesday and finished tied for 22nd with an overall score of 237. Junior Abby Knutson’s 243 was good for a 43rd place tie, sophomore Sarah Storandt was close behind, tying for 45th with a 244, and junior Megan Swan tied for 65th with a 258.
