The freshman’s three-round score of 205 (-11) is the third lowest in Tennessee’s record book, following LVFL Anna Newell‘s 198 (-18) at the 2015 Las Vegas Showdown, and current Lady Vol Bailey Davis’ 203 (-10) at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate earlier this season.
Going into the final day of the tournament at -6, Arora continued to dominate in the third round, posting three birdies and an eagle on the front nine. Her 4-under score consisted of only a single bogey and marked her fifth round of par or better since joining the Lady Vols in January 2023.
Arora’s victory marks the first individual tournament champion under head coach Diana Cantu. The last Lady Vol to notch a first-place finish was LVFL Mikayla Bardwell during the 2019-20 season, where she tied for the top spot at the Liz Murphey Fall Collegiate Classic with a 54-hole score of 213 (69-74-70).
As a team, Tennessee shot -3 (285) in the final round to finish the Clover Cup in fifth place at +9 overall (873) out of the 14-team field, the team’s second-highest finish so far this season.
Emily Hawkins, who competed as an individual, carded four birdies on six holes to post a 73 (+1_. The graduate finished tied for 24th place at +5 overall, notching her first top-25 finish as a Lady Vol. Caroline Patterson finished the tournament strong, recording an eagle on a par 5 to log a 69, her fifth round or par or better. The freshman tied for 29th place.
Freshman Manassanan Chotikabhukkana shot +1 (73) in the third round to place 31st in the 74-player field at +8 overall, while juniors Vanessa Gilly and Kayla Holden both carded a 75 (+3) to tie for 32nd and 38th place, respectively.
