DALLAS -- No. 18 Oklahoma State used a 296 during its third round on Sunday to earn its second victory of the year, finishing first at the SMU Dallas Athletic Club Invitational.
The Cowgirls finished the tournament with a 32-over total of 896, giving them a five-shot cushion against No. 4 Oklahoma at the par-72, 6,301-yard layout. The win was OSU's first since closing out the fall with a victory at the Landfall Tradition.
