Junior Holly Boot shot a career-best even-par 73 Wednesday as UCF carded a 6-over-par 298 and moved from 11th to finish in a tie for eighth at the 28th Annual Pat Bradley Women's Championship at the Miccosukee Golf & Country Club. Augusta State held off the challenge of BYU, which posted the low round of the day with a 4-over-par 296, to win the 20-team event by one stroke over the Cougars.

Memphis' Stacey Tate shot a tournament-best 5-under-par 68 to win medalist honors by one shot over Georgia State's Lisbeth Meincke, who had a two stroke lead heading into the final round. Boot posted the best finish of her career with a tie for 13th.

"I'm so proud of the girls," UCF coach Emilee Klein said. "Our goal heading into the round was to break 300 and they did it. This is something they can build on for the rest of the spring."

UCF got strong play throughout the lineup Wednesday as Ashley Grier shot a 1-over-par 74, Mayule Tomimbang shot a 2-over-par 75 and Kristy McLaughlin shot a three-over-par 76. The 298 was UCF's lowest round of the year and was bettered Wednesday by only BYU.

Tomimbang tied for 27th, while Grier and McLaughlin tied for 34th. Lauren Motyl tied for 70th.
