PROVO, Utah — BYU women’s golf finished 14th at the Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational after rounds of 317-317-161—795 on Tuesday.

Lila Galeai was the low finisher for the Cougars as she earned her second top-25 finish in four events. The junior from Orem, Utah fired rounds of 74-76-40—190 for a 10-over total to finish tied for 15th.
