• • •
Murray State posted a final-round, 22-over 915 to notch a come-from-behind victory at the Ohio Valley Conference Championship Wednesday in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
The Racers trailed Eastern Kentucky by six shots entering the final round at The Shoals Golf Club, but ended up with a two-shot victory over the Colonels, who were the defending champions. Jacksonville State, which won the event back in 2008, the last time it was held at The Shoals Golf Club, finished third at 59 over.
The victory marks the ninth Ohio Valley title for Murray State, but first since 2010.
Individually, Delaney Howson gave the Racers a sweep of the titles by capturing medalist honors at 4-under 212. She was 13 shots better than second-place Anna Gleixner of Eastern Kentucky.
