Oklahoma State won in its final start of the fall season as the Landfall Tradition was shortened to 18 holes because of Hurricane Sandy.

The Cowgirls built a one-shot lead on Duke in the first round on Oct. 26 before rain and high winds forced a stoppage of play midway through Round 2 the following day. Play never resumed at the Country Club of Landfall in Wilmington, N.C., and Round 2 scores were thrown out, leaving Oklahoma State with the trophy. The Cowgirls shot 4-over 292 in Round 1 and Duke finished the day at 5 over. Purdue, which won last year’s event, tied for third with Texas Tech, two shots behind Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma State, ranked No. 17 by Golfweek, has finished inside the top 5 in three of four fall starts.

Kimberly Kaufman, a senior at Texas Tech, shot 5-under 67 for individual medalist honors, the first of her career. Oklahoma State’s Kelsey Vines was runner-up with a 3-under 69.
