SORRENTO, FLA. (UCFAthletics.com) - Sophomore Valentina Fontaine (Santiago, Chile) shot an even-par 72 in the final round, finishing in a tie for fifth place overall to lead the UCF women's golf team in the last day of the UCF Challenge at RedTail Golf Club in Sorrento, Fla.

Overall the Knights shot a 302 (+14) today and 891 (+27) for the tournament, finishing in seventh place. Coastal Carolina was the champion in the 2011 UCF Challenge winning by the narrowest margin of victory in the events five-year history. One shot was the difference between Coastal Carolina 867 (+3) and second place, No. 14 Tulane. The Green Wave's three-day total of 868 (+4) was also one shot better than third place finisher Minnesota which posted a 869 (+5). Kentucky came in with an 881 (+17) which was good enough for fourth place followed by No. 19 Texas and No. 35 South Carolina which tied for fifth at 882 (+19).
