Junior Isabella DiLisio carded a five-under par 67 on Tuesday to help lead the Notre Dame women's golf team to a third place tie out of 14 schools competing in the Minnesota Invitational at the Prestwick Golf Club.
The Irish carded a final-round 281 (-7), the second-lowest score of the day, to finish the event with a school-record 854 (-10) for a par-72/54-hole tournament. Notre Dame tied Purdue for third and trailed only event champion Southern California (838) and Michigan State (847).
"It was a great team effort," head coach Susan Holt said after the record setting day. "It is always a plus when you start out the season with a solid showing. This is a very talented group and they have set the tone for the season early in the year. I'm really proud of the effort and look forward to watching the team continue to develop and improve as the season progresses."
LEADING THE NOTRE DAME LINEUP
Emma Albrecht led Notre Dame and tied for seventh place overall with a 210 (68-72-70), tying for the third-lowest 54-hole score in school history. It is the lowest score on a par-72 course for the Irish since Talia Campbell and Lindsey Weaver each shot a 210 (-6) in the 2013 BIG EAST Championship. Albrecht's final-round 70 on Tuesday featured a quartet of birdies.
After firing a final round 67, DiLisio tied for 10th in the 78-golfer field, matching her career-low score of 211 (69-75-67) from the 2015 Schooner Fall Classic. Her 67 tied for the lowest Tuesday score on the course with Purdue's Inez Wanamarta.
