Kentucky posted a final round team score of two-under par, 286.

Finishing just a stroke behind Damerau was fellow sophomore Sarah Harris with a 54-hole score of one-under par, 215.

Harris, a Hermitage, Tenn., native put together back-to-back under par rounds to finish the tournament. She recorded four more birdies on the day to give her a final round score of two-under par, 70, as she just missed out on a top 10 finish and tying for 14th. Harris tied for the tournament lead with 13 birdies.

Freshman Haley Mills was the third UK player to record an even-par or better final round. Mills shot an even-par, 72, giving her a grand total of four-over par, 220 and tied for 38th.
