COLUMBIA, Mo. - Baylor junior golfer Jaclyn Jansen posted her fifth career top-10 finish, tying for fifth place Sunday on the final day of the 2011 Big 12 Women's Golf Championship.

Baylor finished eighth overall, shooting a three-day score of 36-over-par (301-294-305=900), which set the program 54-hole low at the Big 12 Championship (previous was 914 in 2005). No. 20 Texas held off No. 27 Texas A&M to win the Big 12 title, shooting 8-over 872, while the Aggies finished at 11-over 875. Host Missouri came in third at 16-over 880, followed by No. 15 Iowa State and No. 28 Oklahoma.

Jansen, who entered the day tied for second, shot a final-round 73 to tie with Texas A&M's Sarah Zwartynski. The Effingham, Ill., native was as low as 2-under-par for the day through 13 holes, but she bogeyed three of her final five holes to finish with a 73. The sixth-place finish earned Jansen a selection to the Big 12 All-Tournament Team. Jansen is the 12th Big 12 All-Tournament selection in program history, while her even-par 216 set a Baylor 54-hole low for the Big 12 Championship, besting Hannah Burke's 218 in 2010.

"Our two juniors (Chelsey Cothran and Jaclyn Jansen) played well, which is a good starting point for next season because they will be our leaders," head coach Sylvia Ferdon said. "I'm really proud of the way Jaclyn played, finishing as a Big 12 All-Tournament performer."

Texas' Madison Pressel finished atop the individual leaderboard at 8-under 208. Oklahoma State's Josephine Janson and Texas A&M's Katerina Ruzickova tied for second at 3-under 213, while Iowa State's Victoria Stefansen and Colorado's Jessica Wallace tied for fourth at 1-under 215.

"Overall, Sunday was not a very good day team-wise," Ferdon said. "Entering the final round, I had high hopes of finishing higher. Our goal was to finish in the top-half of the Big 12 and we didn't do that, which is really disappointing. We could have played much better."

Chelsey Cothran, who set the Baylor 18-hole mark for the Big 12 Championship with a 69 Saturday, shot a final-round 75 to tie for 18th at 7-over-par (79-69-75=223). Senior Lene Hafsten-Morch tied for 35th at 12-over-par (75-77-76=228), while Morgan Chambers finished 49th at 17-over-par (75-77-81=233). Freshman Kaylin Terry placed 60th at 26-over-par (80-81-81=242).

Baylor has made 10 NCAA appearances in the last 11 seasons under Ferdon. The Lady Bears will find out its postseason fate Monday when the 72-team 2011 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship field is announced.
