The University of Houston-Victoria women's golf team failed to make a move Monday on the top two contenders to finish third at the second annual UHV Claud Jacobs Collegiate Invitational at The Club at Colony Creek.

Defending champion Oklahoma City opened a seven-shot lead on Sunday and refused to give up much ground in successfully defending its title as the Stars claimed their second title with an 11-shot victory over Northwood.

The Stars added a final round 292 to their opening 290 to finish at 6-over 582. Northwood posted a 297-296-593 for the runner-up finish. The Jaguars posted a two-day 303-305-608 to easily outdistance fourth-place William Carey (315-314-629) and fifth-place Texas Wesleyan (316-281-634).

UHV's Heather Shake had to overcome a couple of pitfalls on the back nine Monday and finished birdie-birdie to place fourth individually with a 71-75-146 in her first collegiate tournament. Rebecca Benchot finished tied for 11th with a 75-75-150 and Brooke Brasseaux tied for 15th with a 76-77-153. Caitlin Swisher posted an 81-78-159 and Shelbi Vincent an 84-83-167 to round out the UHV scoring.

Playing as medalist for the Jaguars, Haley Harris posted and 85-78-163 and Devon Dueser an 87-81-168.

Oklahoma City's Elia Folch fired a final round 3-under 69 to claim individual honors with a 3-under 141, while Northwood's Fariza Zain finished second with a 72-70-142. Folch's teammate Caroline Goodin finished third with a 71-73-144.
