Texas State golfer Krista Puisite barely missed advancing to the NCAA finals during the weekend, carding a three-round score of 216 to come up three strokes short at the NCAA East Regional.

Puisite finished even with the course in Auburn, AL, over her 54 holes. Sunday, she carded a final-round 74 in her final collegiate round, the best of any Bobcat golfer. She had four birdies, including two straight at 11 and 12. Puisite ended the tournament with nine birdies. Her finish placed her 18th among all golfers and the best among the Bobcats.

As a team, the Bobcats finished the season in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four years, finishing 21st among 24 teams. Texas State finished with a three-round total of 914.

Alabama won the tournament with a three-round score of 844, eight strokes ahead of Tulane.

Other Texas State golfers in the NCAA East Regional were Valdis Jonsdottir (233, tied for 93rd), Iman Nordin (234, tied for 96th), Lora Assad (235, tied for 100th) and Mara Puisite (241, tied for 112th).

Kelly Shon of Princeton won the individual championship with a three-round 209.
