WILMETTE, Ill. – The Duke women’s golf team closed the Windy City Collegiate with a sixth place finish as the Blue Devils carded a 14-over-par, 878, over 54 holes at the 6,360-yard, Par 72 Westmoreland Country Club in Wilmette, Ill.

Southern California won the team title with an even-par, 864, with Arizona State (869), Arizona (871), Florida (872), Northwestern (872), Duke (878), Ohio State (892), Purdue (893), South Carolina (896) and Colorado (896) rounding out the top 10 teams.

“We’re really not far away from playing great golf as a team,” commented Duke head coach Dan Brooks. “We’ll be doing pretty much what we’ve been doing in practice. It’s just takes patience and steady commitment.”

The Blue Devils posted a first round of 284 and then followed up the final two rounds with scores of 301 and 293. Duke collected 18 birdies in the first round, but was limited to 12 in round two and 11 on Tuesday.

Sophomore Jaravee Boonchant collected her second straight top 11 finish as she placed tied seventh with rounds of 68, 72 and 75 for a one-under, 215. In the final round, Boonchant notched two birdies on the front nine as she made the turn at one-over, 37. She opened the back nine with eight straight pars, before closing with a double-bogey on No. 18. Boonchant, who is from Bangkok, Thailand, totaled her seventh career top 10 finish.

With rounds of 68, 78 and 74, senior Virginia Elena Carta placed tied 18th with a three-day score of 220. Carta, who hails from Udine, Italy, was even par through her first seven holes as she rolled in a birdie on the 319-yard, par four sixth hole. She was even par over her final nine holes as Carta collected a birdie on the par five 15th. Carta hit 15 greens, 15 fairways and had 34 putts in the final round.

Both freshman Gina Kim and junior Ana Belac each led Duke in the final round with an even-par, 72. Kim, closed her second collegiate tournament with a tied for 24th finish with a six-over, 222. She was even par on her front nine with two birdies, two bogeys and five pars. Kim, a product of Chapel Hill, N.C., rolled in a 15-foot birdie on No. 2 and then stuck her approach from 93 yards on No. 7 to three feet and sank the birdie. Kim had nine pars on the back nine to finish with a 72. She hit 10 greens, nine fairways and had 28 putts on the day.

A native of Portoroz, Slovenia, Belac kicked off her final round with eight pars and a bogey on No. 6 as she made the turn at even par. On the back, she opened No. 10 by draining a 15-footer for birdie and then reeled off five consecutive pars. After a bogey on the 16th, Belac sank another 15-footer for birdie on the 141-yard, par three No. 17. She collected an up-and-down for par on No. 18 from 90 yards to close her day. Belac hit 13 greens, 12 fairways and rolled 29 putts on the day as she tied for 34th overall.

Sophomore Miranda Wang signed for her second straight round of 75 and concluded the tournament tied for 54th. Wang, who is from Beijing, China, was one-under-par over her first 11 holes with birdies on No. 1 and No. 8, but closed her day four-over-par on the final seven holes.

Southern California’s Gabriela Ruffels took home the individual title with a 10-under, 206.

Duke will next compete in the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational Oct. 12-14 at Finley Golf Course.
