BRADENTON, Fla. - Wake Forest finished 13th at the NCAA Championship at Concession Golf Club. Marissa Dodd tied for 16th in the individual standings.

"I am really proud of the way the students fought back in the last two rounds," said head coach Dianne Dailey. "We came back from 20th after two rounds to finish 13th. We posted the third best score in the last two rounds. It shows you can never give up. The team played with a lot of heart. Marissa had a very solid tournament and both Sierra Sims and Allison Emrey came back to finish strong. Overall, it was a very good week."

The Demon Deacons fired a 297 in the third round to move in to the top 15 and advance to Monday's fourth round. Wake Forest matched the 297 in the fourth round to finish 13th overall. The top eight teams advance to match play on Tuesday.

Dodd was Wake Forest's top finisher in a tie for 16th. She is Wake Forest's top finisher in the NCAA Championship since Natalie Sheary tied for eighth in 2011. Dodd finished the week at 10-over after a 4-over 76 on Monday. She was 1-over heading in to the final two holes but a triple bogey on the second to last hole dropped her to 4-over.

Sophomore Sierra Sims turned in a 2-over 74 on Monday. She was 3-over at the turn before she turned in a bogey-free back nine with a birdie on hole three. She finished the tournament tied for 43rd at 18-over.

Senior Allison Emrey came back from opening rounds of 79 and 87 to finish with a 1-over 73 and an even par 72. Emrey had three birdies in the final round to move up to a tie for 51st.

Junior Mariana Sims carded a 3-over 75 on Monday to finish the weekend 27-over and tied for 62nd. Freshman Erica Herr rounded out the scores with an 82 on Monday. She was 38-over for the week.
