ST. GEORGE, Utah -- Beginning the day atop the leaderboard and ending it there, Kimberly Dinh, Kris Yoo and the Wisconsin women's golf team went the distance on Tuesday in the 2013 BYU at Entrada Classic, taking first and second place individual finishes, respectively, while also claiming the team tournament title.

Wisconsin entered the final day with a nine-shot lead over Minnesota, but left no doubts by closing out the 54-hole tournament with an 11-over par 299 through the final 18 holes to finish with a 24-over par 296-293-299=888 and capture its second team title of the season.

Minnesota erased the lead to six strokes, but could not overtake the Badgers, as the Gophers finished runner-up with a 30-over par 304-296-294=894. Climbing from fifth place to finish third on the final day was Nevada, which scored a 46-over par 308-304-298-910.

Capturing her first career individual title, Dinh began the day leading the field with a 72-70=142 and would not relinquish the lead, scoring two birdies over the final 18 holes and finishing with an even-par 72-70-74=216.

The sophomore from Midland, Mich., finished off the best all-around individual performance of her collegiate career, ending with a career-best finish, as well as career-best 18-hole (70), 36-hole (142) and 54-hole (216) totals. The win marked the third top-10 individual finish of Dinh's career.

Yoo finished in second place by capping her first-day total of 71-72=143 with a 74 and finish with a 1-over par 71-72-74=217 total. It was a career-best finish for the junior from Schaumburg, Ill., who also tied her career-best 54-hole mark.

Lindsay Danielson gave Wisconsin three top-10 finishers, as the senior from Osceola, Wis., tied for ninth place and carded a 10-over par 74-76-76=226. It was the second-best performance of the season for Danielson, who claimed an individual title of her own at the Hoosier Fall Invitational earlier this season.

It was moving day for Dana Voss in the individual standings. The sophomore from West Chester, Pa., entered the final day in a tie for 42nd place, then scored a 3-over par 75 to climb up to a tie for 26th place and end the tournament with a 17-over par 83-75-75=233. Aaren Ziegler also scored for the Badgers, as the sophomore from Canby, Ore., recorded an 18-over par 79-76-79=234 to tie for 31st place.

Wisconsin resumes competition next weekend at the Briar's Creek Invitational, held at the Briar's Creek Club in John's Island, S.C., March 25-26.
