Johnson ties for first at tourney

UW senior loses overall title medal in tie-breaker; Badger women's team finishes 11th

Malinda Johnson shot a final round 76 Tuesday to finish tied for first at the Central District Classic in Parrish, Fla.

The Badger women's team shot a final round 309, the fourth-lowest third-round score, for a 54-hole total 943, tied with Iowa State for 11th in the 15-team tournament, which was hosted by Michigan State.

Louisiana State won the team title with a 903, followed by the Spartans at 906.

For Wisconsin, sophomore Jackie Obermueller fired a 77 for a 54-hole total of 236, finishing tied for 41st individually. Sophomore Lindsay McMillan finished in a tie for 47th at 240 and freshman Nicki Morse tied for 58th, firing a 247.
