Oregon Caps Fall Season with Sixth Place Finish at Hawaii
Nov. 1, 2000
Kapolei, Hawaii -- The Oregon women's golf team shot a season-low 300 to finish a season-high sixth at the Rainbow Wahine Fall Golf Classic Wednesday at the 5,900-yard, par-72 Kapolei Golf Course. The Ducks tallied a 64-over, 928 for the three-round event.
Three Oregon golfers finished in the top 20, led by senior Jerilyn White's 14th-place finish. White shot a 4-over 76 Wednesday to finish the tournament at 15-over, tied with four other golfers with 231. The 14th-place finish was White's highest finish since tying for 13th at last June's NCAA Championships. White also tied her low round of the fall with a 74 during Tuesday's opening round.
Senior Dawn Berry and junior Kathy Cho tied for 19th overall at plus-16. Berry had the low round of the day for the Ducks, shooting an even-par 72 Wednesday. That tied her career-low round and helped the Calgary, Alberta, native to her best finish since placing third at the Colby/Santa Clara Invitational during her sophomore season. Cho, a native of the Islands who transferred to Oregon from Hawaii this fall, marked her best finish as a Duck, topping her 34th-place effort three weeks ago.
Defending champion and 18th-ranked UCLA won the tournament by shooting 899. New Mexico was second at 904, followed by San Francisco (919), Washington (922) and Texas A&M (924). The Ducks finished three strokes better than 22nd-ranked San Jose State's seventh-place 931.
Prior to Wednesday, the Ducks best round of the fall was a 304 Oct. 11 at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Redmond, Wash. That was also the site of Oregon's highest finish this fall - eighth - prior to Hawaii.
The tournament was the Ducks' last event of the fall season. The spring season gets underway in mid-February.
