Riley posted rounds of 69-68-69 in Tulane’s Green Wave Fall tournament on Sept 11-12 at City Park to finish at 10-under par 206 and tied for third in the 54-hole event.
Riley was 6-under on the par 5s and 5-under on the par 4s, second best in the tournament. She had 14 birdies over the course of her first collegiate start.
