    TCU junior Brooke Beeler was the individual runner-up, just one stroke off the pace, to lead No. 30 TCU to a fourth-place finish after Tuesday’s final round of the Central District Invitational in Parrish, Fla.

    Beeler, who shot a TCU record 65 in Monday’s opening round, finished with a 2-under-par 214, one stroke behind LSU freshman Austin Ernst.

    Beeler won the Alamo Invitational in November and was seeking her second tournament title of the year. She also tied for second at October’s Windy City Collegiate Classic in her home state of Illinois.

    TCU’s 887 placed it 19 strokes behind winner and No. 27 Iowa State. The Frogs finished ahead of No. 12 Arkansas, No. 19 Michigan State, No. 20 Notre Dame and No. 25 Ohio State.

    TCU recorded its eighth top-five finish and 16th top-10 result in its last 17 tournaments.

    Frogs’ freshman Sanna Nuutinen, who tied for 25th, and sophomore Katy Cardno both carded final round 74s.

    Nuutinen’s second 74 of the tournament featured two birdies, including her opening hole of the day. Cardno’s 74 equaled a career-best round.
