Louisville fought off host Notre Dame, winning the Clover Cup behind an all-around team effort.

Four of Louisville's golfers placed in the top 25 at the tournament, which was held at the Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Ariz., en route to a one-stroke victory.

Junior Emily Haas led Louisville at 3 over 219. The Cardinals finished at 24-over 888, beating out a top five of Notre Dame (25 over), Colorado (29 over) Mississippi and Michigan (32 over).

Notre Dame's Kristina Nhim took medalist honors, finishing the tournament at 3 under par. Nhim's first-round 68 was the lowest score of the tournament. She helped Notre Dame make a late push by recording birdies on three of her last four holes.

The win was the first of the spring for Louisville and the third this year.
