Four Boilermakers finished in the top 10 as No. 11 Purdue cruised to its second consecutive Big Ten Women’s Championship title Sunday.

Purdue carded a final-round 12-over 300 to finish 37 shots ahead of Michigan State. It was the fourth-largest margin of victory in conference championship history.

The Boilermakers were led by senior Maria Hernandez and sophomore Maude-Aimee Leblanc, who shared medalist honors. It was the second year in a row Hernandez, No. 7 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, earned at least a share of the individual title. Leblanc missed a 6-foot putt on the 18th hole to fall into a tie for Hernandez.

For the third time in her career, Hernandez was named Big 10 Player of the Year. She has five victories this season.
