HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. – Another tournament and yet another top 10 finish for Duke University’s Leona Maguire. The senior carded a two-over-par, 215, at the Windy City Collegiate Championship on her way to placing tied ninth overall at the 6,200-yard, par 71 Northmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Ill.

A product of Cavan, Ireland, Maguire posted rounds of 71, 71 and 73 and registered her 28th career top 10 placement, which currently ranks fourth on Duke’s all-time charts. She passed Blue Devil greats Jenny Chuasiriporn and Virada Nirapathpongporn, who each had 27 top 10 placements.

In Tuesday’s round, Maguire couldn’t get much going but battled all day long. She collected 10 straight pars to open her day, but then went through a stretch where she bogeyed three consecutive holes. Maguire closed strong with an up-and-down on the par three 17th, was on the green in two on 18, and tapped in for her lone birdie of the day. She hit 12 greens, 10 fairways and rolled 30 putts. Maguire also tied for second overall with 39 pars over the 54 holes.

Maddie McCrary of Oklahoma State won the individual title with a six-under-par, 207, as she closed with a two-under, 69, Tuesday.

As a team, Duke placed fifth with rounds of 286, 288 and 297 for a 54-hole ledger of 871. Arizona State came back to win the team title with an 853, while Oklahoma State (856), Michigan State (866), Florida (870), Duke (871), Arizona (873), Purdue (874), Iowa State (876), Northwestern (879) and Ohio State (881) rounded out the top 10.

The Blue Devils managed only two birdies on the front nine and just couldn’t get the putts to drop. Duke closed strong with eight birdies over the final five holes though.

In her first collegiate tournament, freshman Miranda Wang placed tied 32nd overall with rounds of 77, 72 and 73. Wang, who is from Beijing, China, shook off the opening jitters and played her final 49 holes at only four-over-par. She collected a key sand save on No. 11 and then closed strong with short birdie putts on NO. 14 and No. 16 to finish the day with a two-over, 73. Wang hit a team-best 14 greens Tuesday, while missing only one fairway and totaling 33 putts.

Rookie Jaravee Boonchant collected her second straight top 15 finish in two collegiate events as she turned in rounds of 72, 70 and 75 for a four-over, 217. A product of Bangkok, Thailand, Boonchant notched three birdies on the day on No. 7, No. 11 and No. 18, but two double-bogeys hindered her efforts in the final round.

Sophomore Ana Belac and junior Virginia Elena Carta turned in tied for 43rd finishes over the two days. Belac, who is from Portoroz, Slovenia, closed strong Tuesday with back-to-back birdies on No. 17 and No. 18 on her way to finishing with a 79. She drained a 15 foot birdie on No. 17 and then tapped in for birdie on the par five 18th. A native of Udine, Italy, Carta featured two birdies over her final five holes as she finished with a 76. She rolled in birdie putts on No. 14 and No. 16.

Duke will next compete locally in the Tar Heel Invitational Oct. 13-15 at the Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill, N.C.
