VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Marshall women's golf team wrapped up the final round of the Princess Anne Invitational Sunday afternoon. The Herd finished in ninth place overall. Junior Shelby Brauckmuller came away with her third top-five finish of the season.

 
"It was a difficult day for the team and we didn't have the four scores like we did yesterday," Herd head coach Brooke Burkhammer said. "Shelby continues to come up clutch for us every single time she tees it up. Kerri (Parks) grinded and did not give up after things got tough for her.
 
"These two continue to improve and helped us tremendously."
 
Brauckmuller finished with an even par 70 in the third round, and finished at even par for the event. Sophomore Kerri Parksshot a 2-over 72 and moved up nine more spots on the leaderboard.
