The Ladyjacks’ last outing was a personal record for the team this season as they have captured the highest finish of the season so far. Two Ladyjacks reached top- 10 finishes, and the team placed a season-high fourth place among the 11 teams competing. They carded a total of 66 over 930 in Corpus Christi.
