Kate Smith tied for runner-up honors by posting the second-best 54-hole tournament score (203) in Nebraska women's golf history on Tuesday at the Westbrook Spring Invitational in Peoria, Arizona.

Smith, a senior from Detroit Lakes, Minn., led Nebraska with an even-par 72 in the final round to close the tournament at 13-under-par 203 (65-66-72). Her three-round tournament total on the par-72, 6,222-yard layout of the Vistas Course at the Westbrook Village Golf Club was just one stroke back of her own school-record 202 that she set at Westbrook in 2018.

Smith finished in a three-way tie for second alongside Oklahoma's Ellen Secor (68-69-66) and Mississippi State's Ashley Gilliam (69-67-67) at 203. The trio finished three strokes behind individual medalist Anna Zanusso from Denver, who finished at 200 (-16). Zanusso tied the NCAA record with an 11-under 61 in Sunday's second round.

Smith's strong performance helped the Huskers tie for 10th in a solid 16-team field at Westbrook. Nebraska, which managed a 293 (+5) on Monday, closed the tournament at even-par 864 through three rounds. The Huskers tied for 10th with Notre Dame and Missouri, while finishing ahead of Big Ten foes Wisconsin (869), Iowa (876) and Indiana (883).

Mississippi State captured the team title with a final-round 280 to finish at 832 (-32), one shot better than Oklahoma's 833 (-31), after the Sooners managed a 282 on Monday. The College of Charleston rounded out the top three at 847 (-17).
