HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. -- It was a picture-perfect day for the final round of the 2010 Windy City Collegiate Classic as cloudless skies and temperatures in the mid-60s served as the backdrop for Northwestern's host tournament. Led by Lauren Weaver's (Scottsdale, Ariz./Cactus Shadows) 1-over 72, the Wildcats shot a 21-over 305 over the final 18 holes, finishing sixth with a three-round total of 57-over 906.
Weaver, who entered Tuesday's final round tied for 12th overall, recorded pars on 15 of the first 17 holes, then capped the tournament with a birdie on 18 to finish tied for sixth, her second top-10 finish of the season. Weaver finished six strokes ahead of teammate Alex Lederhausen (Hinsdale, Ill./Central), who posted her top-20 finish of the season with a 17th-place tie at 13-over 226.
Devon Brown (Rancho Santa Fe, Calif./Cathedral Catholic) got off to a quick start for Northwestern Tuesday morning, recording birdies on two of the first three holes. Brown finished the day with a 4-over 75 for a three-day total of 19-over 232, finishing tied for 30th overall. Anne Ormson (Granger, Ind./St. Joseph's) finished one stroke back with a 20-over 233 with Kelsey Lindenschmidt (West Chester, Ohio/Ursuline Academy) rounding out the Wildcat scorecard with a 31-over 244.
Northwestern began the day in a fourth-place tie with San Diego State, but slipped three shots behind the Aztecs in the final standings while finishing six shots behind TCU, who used a round-best 289 to surge into fourth.
Purdue won its third-straight Windy City Classic title, posting a 24-over 876 and holding off second-place Iowa State (31-over, 883) by seven strokes. Texas Tech capped the 54-hole tournament with a 39-over 891 to place third in the team standings. The Boilermakers' Numa Gulyanamitta became the third different Purdue golfer to take home the individual title, finishing with a 2-over 215, while Iowa State's Prima Thammaraks and TCU's Brooke Beeler tied for runner-up honors with a 4-over 217.
Northwestern will get to remain at home for its next tournament as the Wildcats will host the 2010 Lady Northern Invitational on Monday, Oct. 11 and Tuesday, Oct. 12. The tournament, which serves as a warm-up for the Big Ten Championships in April, will be held at the Lake Shore Country Club in Glencoe.
