SAN JOSE, Calif. - Leilanie Kim had her low round of the tournament with a closing 74 as the University of Idaho women's golf team finished 12th at the annual Julie Inkster Spartan Invitational with a 54-hole total 939.

Kim, who opened with rounds of 83-77, finished with a total 234 to tie for 41st. While she finished strong, scores elsewhere crept up. Kristin Strankman tied for 45th after an 81 Tuesday to go with 75-79 during Monday's opening rounds. Strankman's 54-hole total of 235 was two strokes better than the 237 by teammate Kaitlyn Oster, who went 78-79-80 through the event, to tie for 49th.

Rounding out the scoring, were Rachel Choi, who was 60th after rounds of 79-79-82 for a 240, while Cassie McKinley tied for 66th after firing an 80 Tuesday to go with a 78-88 from Monday. She was at 246.

Still, coach Lisa Johnson said there are positives.

"This team gives 100 percent every time we step on the course and I am confident this will convert into lower scores in the near future," Johnson said. "We still made too many mistakes on and around the green."

Stanford, led by medalist Mariah Stackhouse's four-under 212, won the tournament with an 878.
