Alabama wins sixth annual Schooner Fall Classic

The 2018 Schooner Fall Classic saw a pair of record-breaking performances from both tournament champion Alabama and host Oklahoma. The 15-team women's golf tournament was held Sept. 28-30 at Belmar Golf Club in Norman. Alabama won the 15-team event by shooting 807 (-45) - the lowest 54-hole score in relation to par in NCAA history. The Crimson Tide's historic performance was fueled by four golfers finishing in the top 10, including individual medalist Jiwon Jeon (196, -17) and runner-up Lauren Stephenson (199, -14). "This team is so good that you don't even realize what they're doing when it's happening," Alabama head coach Mic Potter said. "You can shoot low on this golf course if you drive it in the fairway and we were able to do that. We gave ourselves chances and when we had an opportunity to make a birdie, we did. We didn't make many bogeys either. It all added up in the end." The hometown Sooners took third place with a three-round score of 831 (-21), fighting back from ninth place after the opening round. OU posted a program-record 267 (-17) on Saturday's second round and shot 25 shots under par in the final 36 holes of their home tournament. "I'm really proud of everyone for fighting the last couple of days," said OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell. "It really goes to show you that you must enjoy what you do and have a blast doing it. The last two days showed how much talent we have. Now we just have to continue working." Playing in her hometown of Norman, Sooner sophomore Kaitlin Milligan sunk five birdies on the back nine to record a 68 (-3) in the final round. Milligan tied for fifth in the individual standings with a three-day score of 68 (-3) to lead her team to the top-three showing. Hosted in partnership with the Toby Keith Foundation, the Schooner Fall Classic is a unique tournament that ties in a community service element for all participating student-athletes and coaches.
