Baylor rallies for San Antonio Regional crown

  The Bears trailed Tennessee by four strokes entering the final round.

SAN ANTONIO — Baylor shot a 7-under-par 281 in the final round to win the NCAA San Antonio Regional title on Saturday at Briggs Ranch Golf Club (6,350 yards, par 72).

The Bears trailed Day 2 leader Tennessee by four shots entering the final 18 holes and made up the deficit thanks to a 7-under 65 from individual medalist Hayley Davis. Baylor finished with a 22-under 842 (280-281-281) in capturing the crown and one of six automatic berths to the NCAA championships later this month in Bradenton, Florida.

UCLA matched Baylor’s final-round 281 to move into second place with a 19-under 845 (278-286-281). The Bruins were led by Bronte Law’s 68-68-69—205, which was good for runner-up honors.

Tennessee ended up in third at 14-under 850 (276-281-293), while Texas A&M carded a 281-283-290—854 for fourth.

Washington (281-281-300—862) and Texas Tech (292-283-287—862) finished in a tie for fifth. The Red Raiders fired a 287 to leap past Texas (287-284-293—864) for the sixth and final qualifying spot.

The top three individuals not on the six advancing teams also earned a place in the NCAA championships. Bertine Strauss of Texas (70-72-70—212), Monica Vaughn of Arizona State (71-72-69—212) and Anica Yoo of Oregon State (70-69-73—212) all tied for sixth to book their ticket.
