The No. 5 ranked Emory University women's golf team concluded play at the Westbrook Invite at the Lakes on Sunday, finishing third in the 10-team field. The two-round tournament was played at the Westbrook Village Golf Club in Peoria, Arizona on the par 71, 5810 yards Westbrook Lakes Course.

After sitting in fifth at the end of the day on Saturday, the Eagles moved up two positions to conclude the two-rounds in the third with a two-day total of 584 (290-294). The University of Redlands won the team title with 580 and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, the day one leader, came in second with a score of 582.

As the Eagles' top performer on Saturday, junior Sharon Mun was solid once again on Sunday while competing as an individual. Mun shot a team-best 71 over the second round and finished in a tie for fourth with a two-day total of 141.

Sophomore Katie Park was Emory's best performer in the team scoring as she equaled Mun with a scorecard reading 71 in the second round. Park recorded three birdies to go along with 14 pars as she finished second individually with 27 pars over the weekend.

Park moved up 10 spots with her outing and finished in a tie for 11th with teammate Ellen Dong. Dong entered the clubhouse one shot behind Park on Sunday after a second round that was impressively consistent. Dong shot par on 17 of her 18 holes and matched Park for the tournament with 27 pars.
