OKLAHOMA CITY — William Woods University freshman Maria Zrodowska, despite briefly owning the NAIA 72-hole record, ended up in a tie for fifth place as the 25th-annual national championships wrapped up Friday.

Zrodowska set the mark after shooting an even-par 72 in the fourth round to finish with a 2-over 290 total. However, four golfers surpassed Zrodowska's short-lived record to drop her into the fifth-place tie.

She did break the seven-year-old William Woods record — previously held by Jamie Palermo — by seven strokes.

Zrodowska opened play Friday with seven consecutive pars and completed the front nine at 1-over. She then produced a birdie on the 10th hole and followed with five straight pars, before concluding play with another birdie to finish the back nine at 1-under.

Keiser University's Michele Tjan won the NAIA individual title with a record 284. British Columbia captured the team national championship with a 1,175 total, which was also a record.
