Syracuse, NY (Sports Network) - Olivia Jordan-Higgins managed a 1-over 72 on Sunday and it was enough to win the Credit Union Classic by one stroke.

Jordan-Higgins finished at 6-under-par 207 on the East Course at Drumlins Country Club to earn her first Symetra Tour title.

She parred eight of the first nine holes to go with a bogey at the fifth. Around the turn, she birdied the 10th, but gave that shot right back as she tripped to a bogey on No. 11. Jordan-Higgins closed with seven straight pars to earn the win.

Last week's winner P.K. Kongkraphan posted a 1-under 70 to grab second place at minus-5. Amy Meier (69) took third, while Kendra Little (70) and Megan McChrystal (73) shared fourth at 3-under 210.

There was a rain delay that lasted over four hours and occurred just after the final group completed their first hole.
