ST. GEORGE, Utah - In Texas Tech's final event before the Big 12 Conference Championship, the 26th-ranked Red Raider women's golf team captured its first title of the season by winning the Utah-Dixie Classic by one shot over 12th-ranked Texas A&M.

Sophomore Jamie Vannoy, who transferred from Arizona, tied for first place thanks to a 1-over-par 73 today and a 3-over 147 total. She tied with first-round leader Angela Stanford of TCU for medalist honors. Stanford came back with a 3-over 75 after an even-par round of 72 yesterday.

The event, which featured nine Big 12 Conference teams, was shortened from 54 to 36 holes due to inclement weather at the par 72, 6015-yard Sunbrook Golf Course. Tech, which claimed the victory with a 307 today and 606 total, now begins preparations for the Big 12 Conference Championship, scheduled for April 24-26 in Norman, Okla.

"This should give us a lot of momentum going into the conference meet," Texas Tech head coach Jeff Mitchell said. "With a total of nine conference teams here, this has provided us with a great test as we prepare for the Big 12 tournament."

Texas A&M finished alone in second place at 607. Eleventh-ranked Oklahoma State finished third (611) and No. 15 TCU fourth (614), while No. 28 Missouri and Kansas tied for fifth (621).

Junior Brooke Lowrance moved up from a tie for 15th to finish in a tie for fifth in the individual standings. The All-America candidate, finishing among the top 10 for the fifth time in seven events this season, fired a 1-over 73 to finish at 149. Freshman Priscillia Hunt tied for 11th with a 78 today and an overall 151 total.
