BECKER, Minn. - St. Olaf junior Molly Knutson finished in a first place tie before losing a playoff to place second, as the Ole women's golf team won the nine-team St. Thomas Invite on Sunday at Pebble Creek Golf Course.

Knutson's first-round 74 is the second-best round in school history, one off of first year Maxine Carlson's 73 from last weekend's Washington University Invitational.

The Oles' Molly Erickson and Vanessa Klekner were five strokes behind Knutson in a tie for third. Carlson was 11th in the event, going 83-83 on the par-72, 5,801-yard track.
