The University of Arizona women's golf team finished in 23rd place Friday after the final round of the 2008 NCAA Women's Golf Championships in Albuquerque, N.M.

Arizona tallied a 22-over 310 in the fourth round to finish in 23rd place at 88-over 1,240 total. Less than ideal weather conditions affected the entire event and the Wildcats were never able to get things going. En route to the 23rd-place finish, UA managed a total of 24 birdies over the tournament's four rounds.

USC claimed the national championship by six strokes with a 16-over 1,168 tally. USC's and Arizona State's Azahara Munoz are in a playoff for individual medalist honors after both carded one-under 287 totals through 72 holes.

UA's Alison Walshe shot a three-over 75 and finished in a tie for 28th place at 11-over 299. Though it was her highest tournament total in relation to par this season, Walshe was the Wildcats' top-finishing player for the eighth time in her 11 appearances.

Mary Jacobs posted a final-round 75 (+3) and tied for 80th place at 21-over 309. Freshman Alejandra Llaneza also carded a 75 Friday and finished in a tie for 93rd place at 26-over 314.

Amanda Wilson tied for 105th place at 30-over 318, while Emily Mason finished in 124th place at 46-over 334.

The event was contested at the UNM Championship Course, a par-72, 6,424-yard layout. The event was hosted by the University of New Mexico.
