EAST LANSING, Mich. -- The University of Notre Dame women's golf team slipped into a tie for fifth place following final-round action Sunday at the Mary Fossum Invitational, held at the par-72, 5,826-yard Forest Akers West Golf Course.

The Irish stood in second place after a morning round of 308 on Saturday before slipping into a tie for fourth after an afternoon round of 321. Sunday's round of 324 in the play-six/count-four format dropped the Irish into a three-way tie with Michigan (315-318-320) and Illinois State (317-318-318) for fifth at 953.

Host Michigan State (302-293-300/895) led throughout en route to a comfortable 34-stroke cushion and the team title. Wisconsin (315-299-315/929) took second place, followed by Ohio University (309-320-316/945) and Kent (312-315-324/951), which edged the Irish by two strokes.

Irish Junior captain Andrea Klee (Appleton, Wis.), who opened with matching rounds of 77 on Saturday, fired a final-round 82 to finish tied for 16th with a career-best 236. Sophomore Mary Klein (76-83-81; Kokomo, Ind.) and junior Brigid Fisher (78-81-81; Augusta, Ga.) wrapped up solid outings by earning a share for 24th in the 89-player field, at 240.

Sophomore Becca Schloss (77-80-85; Bloomsburg, Pa.) finished tied for 28th while junior Beth Cooper (Kalamazoo, Mich.) bounced back from a rough first two rounds (84-86) to post a final-round 80 for a 250 total. Schloss made one of two eagles in the entire tournament, chipping in on a par-three hole early in the first round.

Newcomer Shane Smith (St. Petersburg, Fla.), a sophomore transfer from SMU, finished in the top 50 after rounds of 83-83-84/251. Freshman Kristin McMurtrie (82-84-85/251; Calgary, Alb.) and sophomore Danielle Villarosa (88-87-88/262; Verona, N.J.) also competed in the tournament as individual entrants.

Klee posted the seventh-best scoring average over the par-four holes (4.33, +10) and tied for the fourth-best average on the par-five holes (4.92/-1). She carded 35 pars over the 54 holes, tying for the fourth-most pars in the tournament.
