Final results

Arkansas senior Emily Tubert won the individual title and two of her teammates finished in a three-way tie for second Sunday, leading the Razorbacks to victory at the Mercedes-Benz Intercollegiate.

Tubert shot rounds of 69-68 for a 5-under 137 total and a three-shot victory over Tulane's Silvia Garcia and fellow Razorbacks Gaby Lopez and Regina Plascencia at Cherokee Country Club in Knoxville, Tenn. Tubert made the turn at 1-over Sunday, but birdied the 10th, 12th, 15th and 16th holes to earn the victory. Saturday's play was rained out and the event was shortened to 36 holes.

Arkansas finished at 5-under 563 as a team, eight shots ahead of South Carolina and 16 ahead of third-place Tulane.
