AUSTIN, Texas -- The TCU women's golf team shot a final-round 303 Sunday to finish second at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational in Austin, Texas.

The No. 27 Horned Frogs were 11 strokes behind champion Purdue, who rallied from an eight-stroke deficit entering the final round to claim the team title. The 18th-ranked Boilermakers shot a final round 4-over 292.

TCU posted its second straight second-place finish and third in the 2006-07 season. The Frogs have eight top-six results in their nine tournaments.

Camille Blackerby carded an even-par 72 Sunday to record TCU's best finish, tying for eighth individually.

Valentine Derrey and Carrie Morris posted a final-round 74 and 76, respectively. It was the best round of the tournament for Morris. Derrey, who placed 14th, improved her score each day.

Purdue's Maria Hernandez, who began Sunday seven strokes behind leader Kelley Louth of Texas, shot a 70 to finish at 3-over 217 and take medalist honors by one stroke over Stacy Lewis of Arkansas. Louth had an 81 Sunday and was four strokes behind Hernandez in fourth place.

TCU returns to action April 3-4 at the BYU Dixie Classic in St. George, Utah, the same site as the Mountain West Conference Championships.
