LIBERTY, Ind. – Senior Hannah Toresdahl finished sixth overall on the individual leaderboard and led Earlham College women's golf to a third-place finish out of four squads at the Earlham Women's Golf Fall Invitational, which concluded Sunday at the Liberty Country Club.

Toresdahl carded an 86 in Sunday's second round and completed the 36-hole tournament with a 164 (+24).

Senior Emma Wilkins and junior Megan Garner were tied for 10th individually with a 171 (+31). Wilkins fired an 85 in Sunday's second round, while Garner shot an 86 on the par 70, 5,801-yard Liberty Country Club course.

Sophomore Claire Waggener was two strokes back of Garner and Wilkins, rebounding nicely from Saturday's round of 92 to card an 81 on Sunday and finish with a 36-hole score of 173 (+33). Sophomore Myra Robinson was Earlham's final scorer with a 109 on Sunday, giving her a 213 (+73) for the tournament.

Sophomore Daniela Joseph (211, +71) and junior Brittney Chong (227, +87) competed as individuals and carded rounds of 100 and 113 respectively on Sunday.

IU-Kokomo's Brandi Jones took medalist honors with a 156 (+16) over 36 holes with a 78 in each round. She edged out IU-East's Lexie Fields (157, +17) by one stroke.

IU East also won the team title with a 647 (+87) for the tournament. IU-Kokomo (678, +118) was second, followed by Earlham with a 679 (+119).
