WOLCOTT, Colo. -- Kortnie Maxoutopoulis carded a 69 with Sanna Nuutinen adding a 71 to lead TCU to a third-place finish after Wednesday's final round of the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Wolcott, Colo.

Maxoutopoulis equaled a career-best round from last year's PING/ASU Invitational. She birdied her first hole and totaled a team-best six birdies on the day, including four in a six-hole stretch.

A junior from Pleasanton, Calif., Maxoutopoulis recorded a TCU career-best finish with a tie for 14th.

Nuutinen had five final-round birdies en route to a third-place finish, seven strokes behind medalist Grace Na from Pepperdine. Nuutinen posted her best result since winning the 2012 Mountain West Championship.

April McCoy contributed a 75 for TCU, while Chaney Uhles added a 77. Uhles finished at 233 to tie for 32nd in her first tournament for the Horned Frogs.

With a 4-over-par 292, TCU recorded its best round of the tournament and a 25-stroke improvement over Tuesday's second round. The 292 trailed only Pepperdine's 284 for best score on the day.

Pepperdine captured the team title with an 869, 36 shots ahead of UC Davis. The Horned Frogs finished at 910.

TCU returns to action Monday, when it begins play at the Windy City Collegiate Classic in Chicago.
