AUSTIN, Texas— Iowa State sophomore golfer Cajsa Persson continued her assault on the Iowa State record books this afternoon, tying for fifth as an individual to help the 15th-ranked Cyclones finish fourth at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational.

Persson broke the Cyclones’ 54-hole school record by carding a 6-under 210 with rounds of 69-69-72. Her consecutive 69s in the first two rounds earned her the distinction as the only Cyclone in school history to record back-to-back sub-70 rounds.

Persson, who is ranked 29th nationally in the Golfweek rankings, has placed in the top-10 in all three events this year for the Cyclones. Her 71.1 stroke average in nine rounds this season is on pace to shatter the single-season school mark.

Iowa State as a team shot a three-round 862 tally (291-282-289), the second-best 54-hole team score in school history. The tournament featured five teams ranked in the Golfweek top-30, including top-ranked and team champion UCLA (838).

Senior Sasikarn On-iam helped the Cyclone effort by tying for 14th with rounds of 70-72-73 (215). Her score ties for the ninth-best all-time in ISU history. Junior Chonlada Chayanun was one shot back of On-iam in a tie for 17th place at 216. Chayanun fired and even-par 72 this afternoon.

The Cyclones will wrap up their fall schedule at the Landfall Tradition, Oct. 25-27.
