Campbell takes individual title, leads Mustangs to second straight win at Lions Classic

 Midwestern State sophomore Sierra Campbell claimed her first collegiate individual win while helping the Mustangs claim their second consecutive team title Tuesday afternoon at the Par-70, 5,825-yard course at the Hardscrabble Country Club.

The Mustangs logged the best two team scores with rounds of 305 and 302 to finish with a 47-over total of 607 outlasting 16th-ranked Newman (Kan.) by eight strokes.

"The girls have worked hard and have made improvement since the start of January," MSU coach Jeff Ray said. "I am really proud of them and they will continue to keep getting better."

Campbell also continued her positive roll notching her fourth straight Top 10 finish and fifth of the season firing the best individual round of the tournament with a 1-over 71 to finish four strokes better than teammate Brenna Moore and Kendall Anderson of Newman with a two-round total of 146 (+6).

"Sierra was very determined," Ray said. "She played great golf today. She followed up every bad shot with a really good swing. She is my hardest worker and really deserves this win."

Brenna Moore battled to card a final round 76 to finish tied for second with a two-round total of 150 (+10), while sophomore Hayley Dambold logged a 75 to place tied for fifth with a total of 154 (+14).

"Brenna is able to find a way to give us a solid score even when she doesn't have her 'A Game,'" Ray said. "Hayley is really coming back to form after a tough first semester. She is really coming on and starting to play some quality golf for us."

Freshman Sarah Moore notched an 80 to round MSU's second round countable scores finishing tied for 11th overall with a 36-hole total of 158 (+18).

Sophomore Kellie Martin tied for 20th with rounds of 80 and 84 for a 24-over total of 164, while junior Kynze Mann closed 23rd with a two-round total of 165 (+25).

The Mustangs compete in the Doc Houseright Invitational hosted by Tarleton State on April 13-14 at the Harbor Lakes Golf Club in Granbury, Texas.
