KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - After the second round of the tournament was cancelled due to inclement weather, Mizzou Women's Golf closed out the final round at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Challenge in Knoxville, Tenn., on Sunday, Sept. 20.

The Tigers were led by freshman Jessica Meek, who earned a spot in the top 25 overall. Meek tied for 25th in the tournament after finishing the tournament just 5-over par.
