The North Dakota State University women’s golf team, spurred by a season-low team round of 287, finished in second place at the Stampede at the Creek on Tuesday afternoon at Indian Creek Golf Course in Omaha, Nebraska.
The Bison, who carded rounds of 302-287-303 for an 892 total, finished two strokes behind the tournament winner Creighton, who shot 293-295-302 for an 890. The South Dakota Coyotes finished behind the Bison with a 906 total to round out the top three in the nine-team tournament.
