TULSA, Okla. --- The Georgia women's golf team posted a 288 in Wednesday's final round of the Dale McNamara Fall Preview, leaving the 17th-ranked Bulldogs in 12th place in the elite field. The Preview featured most of the nation's top teams – including nine of the preseason top-10 – competing on the same Tulsa Country Club layout that will host the NCAA Championships next spring.

Sophomore Manuela Carbajo Ré signed for a 1-over 71 to pace Georgia on Wednesday. The Bulldogs' steady team tally also featured a 72 by Rocio Sanchez Lobato and a pair of 72s from freshman Sammi Lee and Mary Ellen Shuman. Freshman Harang Lee's 75 was the team's drop score.

"It was kind of the same story as the first two days," head coach Josh Brewer said. "Everyone played pretty well and we had a chance to have a really good day but couldn't get over the hump. Ro had one bad swing and that really cost here three strokes. We're close. We have some good things to take away from here and a few things we have to work on."

The Bulldogs teed off from No. 10 on Wednesday. Carbajo Ré opened her round with a birdie but turned at 3-over following a quartet of consecutive bogeys at No. 13, No. 14, No. 15 and No. 16. She pulled within 1-under with successive birdies at No. 5 and No. 6. Following a bogey at No. 8, Carbajo Ré closed with her fourth birdie of the day at No. 9.

In 10 collegiate events, Carbajo Ré, a sophomore from Necochea, Argentina, has now registered seven top-20 individual finishes.

Southern Cal's Kyung Kim used a 4-under 66 to lead the Women of Troy to a sweep of the team and individual titles. Kim finished at 6-under 204 for a three-shot victory.

For the Bulldogs, Carbajo Ré tied for 17th at 215, Harang Lee tied for 36th at 219, Sanchez Lobato tied for 39th at 220, Shuman tied for 47th at 221 and Sammi Lee tied for 51st at 222.

Led by Kim, No. 1 USC surged from fourth to first on the team leaderboard on Wednesday. No. 6 Oklahoma finished second at 852, followed by No. 14 Oklahoma State at 855, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Duke both at 856, No. 8 Arkansas at 857, No. 5 Arizona State at 859, No. 7 Arizona at 861, No. 11 Stanford at 867, No. 18 Tulane at 868, No. 15 North Carolina at 869, the Bulldogs at 871, No. 9 Vanderbilt at 878, No. 19 Texas at 893 and Tulsa at 916.

"We had a few errors and a few bad swings," Brewer said. "Other than that, if we do a little better here and there and we could've finished fourth or fifth this week against a field that is a national championship level. I think we need to believe a little more that we're as good at the other teams here. That confidence will come with more competitive golf and continued success."

The Bulldogs will return to action in three weeks when they travel to the Windy City Collegiate Classic at Glen View Club in Chicago on Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
