University of Miami senior Tina Miller fired a final round four-under-par 68 to come from three strokes back and win the 27th FIU/Pat Bradley Invitational at Doral Golf Resort in Miami, Fla.

Miller, who trailed Princeton’s Avery Kiser by three strokes after two rounds, found herself four strokes behind after a three-putt double bogey on the fourth hole. Miller then caught fire birdying three of the next six holes to take a two-stroke lead. She shot a closing round 68.

Kiser had been extremely steady the first two rounds posting only two bogies and one double bogie, but struggled recording three bogies during Miller’s decisive run.

Miller added two more birdies the rest of the way including an eight-foot putt on the final hole to post a career-best three-round score of 213 and clinch her fifth career victory.

“This was a special win for me because it was in Miami and my family and friends were able to be here,” added Miller. “I think this is the first time my Dad has seen me win a college tournament.”

Miami recorded a team score of 914 to finish second to Princeton who won the team title with a score of 907.

In addition to Miller, the Hurricanes had three players shoot in the 70’s on Sunday. Sophomore Josie Shinn recorded a 77 Sunday to finish in 16th-place. Freshman Hagen Weintraub also posted a final round 77 to finish tied for 21st with UM senior Esther Lee who shot 79 on Saturday to finish with a three-round total of 235.

Women’s cross-country

University of Miami junior Melanie Schultz has been named the ACC Cross Country Performer of the Week.

Schultz placed third at the Walt Disney World Cross Country Classic in Orlando with a time of 17:43.57 to lead the women’s cross country team to a 12th-place finish out of 32 teams.

Schultz has been the Hurricanes top finisher at all three meets this season, and in eight of the last nine races dating back to last season. She has finished in the top-three of all three races this season including a season-opening win at the FIU Invitational.

Men’s cross-country

The University of Miami men’s cross country team is ranked 15th in the South Region in the latest United States Cross Country Coaches Association poll released Tuesday.

Miami, which placed third out of 31 teams at last weekend’s Walt Disney Cross Country Classic, has finished in the top-four of all four meets this season including a season-opening victory at the FIU Invitational.

The Hurricanes have been led this season by junior Alex Brutvan, who has been Miami’s top finisher at every event. Brutvan was the top collegiate finisher at the FIU Invitational and has three career collegiate wins to his credit. He has been UM’s top finisher in 11 consecutive races dating back to last season.
