    Women’s Golf

    The Horned Frogs finished in third place after the final round of the LSU Tiger Golf Classic. 

    TCU’s score of 297 would be the best round of the tournament. The Frogs would finish 16 strokes behind No. 6 LSU, who hosted and took the team title.

    Senior Kortnie Maxoutopoulis eagled the 15th hole, marking the second straight day a Horned Frog recorded an eagle. Maxoutopoulis would also shoot an even-par 72 to tie for fourth individually. It was the second consecutive tournament she posted the best finish of her career.

    Sophomore Kelly McGovern had back-to-back birdies and would tie for 10th. Senior Alexadra Bonetti shot par on 13 holes and finished in a tie for 14th. 

    TCU will head to the SMU Invitational at the Dallas Athletic Club on April 10.

    Track and Field

    Personal records were broken at the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin on Saturday.

    Junior Ronnie Baker recorded a time of 10.02 in his first 100-meter dash of the season. His time was a personal best and places him at No. 4 all-time at TCU.

    Baker ran against an Olympic medalist, the Japanese national record holder, and TCU’s own Charles Silmon, who clocked in at 9.91 in the race, said Darryl Anderson, director of track and field.

    “That was better than running against college guys because he got great experience and great exposure running in that race,” Anderson said.

    Also that day, the men’s 4×100 relay finished in third place at 39.15 seconds, falling just .24 seconds behind first-place. The relay team is ranked first in the Big 12 and third in the country. They have already surpassed last year’s best of 39.52 seconds.

    The Frogs will head to the Baylor Invitational in Waco on April 3.
