The Florida Atlantic University women's golf team was unable to make up any ground during Tuesday's final round to finish in 12th place at the 32nd Pat Bradley Invitational in Fort Myers, Fla.
Senior Jennifer Norton carded an 80 score during the final 18 holes on the 6,193-yard, par-72 layout at the Pelican Preserve & Country Club. That gave her a three-round total of 225, which tied for 27th place individually. The Port St. Lucie, Fla. native fired rounds of 72 and 73 on Monday, with the even-par 72 being the lowest score recorded by an Owl women's golfer this season.

She has played six rounds this season, with all scores being in the 70s. Cadieux finished the event with a 226 score, which was good enough for 32nd place.
Junior Elisabetta Bertini carded the team's lowest round on Tuesday, posting a four-over-par 76. She improved her score during each round of the event and finished with a 237 score.
