KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The UMKC women’s golf team closed out the 2018 season when it finished fifth in the WAC Championship at +48, 900 (298-306-296) at The Legacy Golf Resort in Phoenix, Ariz.

The 296 is tied for the fifth lowest round in school history.

Cynthia Diaz finished with the low score for the Roos, carding a three round 218 (75-71-72) to finish at +5 in fifth place, tied for the third lowest score in school history.  Diaz opened the event with a two-birdie round of 75, before coming back on day two with UMKC low round of 71 that featured four birdies, including back-to-back on the par-3 No. 7 and par-5 No. 8.  In the final round, the Colombian shot a 72 that featured three birdies on the back nine, with back-to-back on the par-5 No. 14 and par-3 No. 15.
