MILFORD, Conn. - Sophomore Kristyna Pavlickova of the Boston University golf team shot a final-round 72 on Monday to defend her Sacred Heart Fall Classic title at Great River Golf Club.

Pavlickova's performance paced the Terriers to a third-place finish, as BU tallied a two-day total of 654 (331-323), seven shots behind second-place Brown (647). Pennsylvania won the event with a score of 630.

The Prague, Czech Republic, native was tied for first with Penn's Isabel Han entering Monday after an opening-round 76 on Sunday. Pavlickova was two shots better than Han over the final 18 holes, however, to finish with a 148 and claim her second victory of the season and fourth of her career. She won the Bucknell Invitational in September to begin the fall season.

Freshman Maddy Silverman had a key hand in the Terriers' strong Monday showing, as she improved upon her opening-round score by eight strokes. She finished the weekend tied for 14th with a 166 (87-79). Classmate Emily Tillo carded a 169 (83-86) to finish tied for 17th.

Sophomore Flor Canedo tied for 26th place with a 174 (85-89), while junior Christine Silen finished tied for 30th with a 175 (89-86). Sophomore Christina Patracuolla rounded out the BU contingent with a score of 180 (90-90).

BU sank nine birdies to finish the semester with a total of 92. Alumni, family and friends are still invited to pledge a gift for every birdie the Terriers sink this season as part of the "Terrier Birdies Challenge" this fall.

It was a historic fall season for the Terriers, as they claimed two team titles, had a second-place performance and finished no lower than third in all but one tournament. BU won the Bucknell Invitational to open the season before its win at the ECAC Championship. The Terriers averaged a total of 315 over 11 rounds as a team, which is 24 shots better than last spring.
