JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jami Laude completed the trifecta.

Laude, a Central Michigan freshman, shot a 4-over-par 76 on Tuesday to finish with a 54-hole 221 total - a program record - in leading the Chippewas at the North Florida Collegiate at Jacksonville Golf and Country Club.

On Monday, Laude set program 18- and 36-hole records when she shot 71 in the second round and finished the day with a 145 total.

She made two birdies, four bogeys and one double bogey in her Tuesday round. She posted a combined eight birdies and seven bogeys over her 36 holes on Monday. She never made worse than a double bogey - and she made just two - on her 54 holes in the tournament.

"She is playing pretty consistent, steady golf," CMU coach Cheryl Stacy said of Laude, who led the Chippewas with a 53rd-place finish last weekend at Rio Verde Invitational in Arizona. "The golf course didn't play super long, so it was score-able. The greens were really hard so you couldn't hit it right at the pin; she adjusted pretty well to that. When she did get in a little trouble she was able to scramble."

All three records that Laude set in the tournament she had either owned or shared. She and teammate Danielle Sawyer shared the previous 18-hole mark, 72; and Laude had held the previous 36- and 54-hole marks of 147 and 227, respectively.

Laude's 221 left her in a tie for 16th place in the 92-player field. Jiwon Jeon of Daytona State closed with a 5-under 67 to finish at 14-under 202 and win the tournament.

Also for CMU on Tuesday, freshman Meghan Deardorff and junior Bria Colosky both shot 79, senior Natalie Johnson carded an 82, and sophomore Danielle Sawyer shot 90. Two Chippewas, Rachel Leucuta and Amanda Walsh, played in the tournament as individuals. Walsh shot 85 on Tuesday, while Leucuta carded an 85.

Johnson finished the tournament with a 231 total to tie for 46th. Deardorff finished at 241, Colosky at 243, and Sawyer at 263.

CMU posted a 316 team total on Tuesday and finished in 16th place in the 17-team event at 936.

Old Dominion shot 293 on Tuesday and won the tournament with an 864, 19 shots ahead of runner-up Chatanooga.
