LUBBOCK, Texas – Emily Powers’ third top-10 performance of the season led the Kansas women’s golf team to a seventh place finish at the 14-team McHaney/Morehead Invitational at the Rawls Course.

The Jayhawks shot a final round 314 Tuesday to finish the tournament with 943 strokes.

Powers, a junior from Quincy, Ill., fired a third round 74 to finish the tournament in seventh place with a 227. She now has the lowest score of any Jayhawk in three of the team’s four tournaments this fall.
