A strong season for Florida State’s women’s golf team came to an end in Stillwater on Monday.

In the fourth round of the NCAA Championships, the Seminoles started the day in ninth place, needing to move up one spot to eighth to advance to match play. Instead, they fell three spots to finish in a tie for 12th place.

FSU finished even with Texas and Washington at +40 as a team. That was seven strokes shy of Baylor and Arizona, who were battling for eighth place in a playoff hole. UCLA and Alabama tied for the top spot at +9.

Advancing to match play along with the Bruins, Crimson Tide and playoff winner will be USC, Northwestern, Stanford, Duke and Kent State. Match play begins on Tuesday and ends with a national champion to be crowned on Wednesday.

On the individual side, Morgane Metraux finished tied for fifth at -4. Sister Kim Metraux finished in a tie for 17th place for the Seminoles at +2. Wake Forest’s Jennifer Kupcho claimed the individual title at -8.
