Ducks Finish 15th at Wildcat Invitational

Feb. 21, 2001

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Senior Jerilyn White carded her second consecutive sub-par round to finish seventh at the Wildcat Invitational played at the 6,119-yard, par-72 Raven Golf Club at Sabino Springs. It was the best finish of the season for White, who fired a 1-under 71 Wednesday to follow rounds of 78 and 69 for a 218 total. She finished five strokes back of individual medalist Lorena Ochoa of Arizona.

The Oregon women's golf team shot a 314 Wednesday to finish 15th with a 942 total. Arizona won the tournament with an 875 composite. The Ducks managed to beat only one competitor out of the tournament's 16-team field - Nevada which carded a 954.

'It was growing experience,' said first-year Oregon coach Shannon Rouillard. 'We got a foundation to see what we need to work on. Jerilyn's last two days were awesome. That's something she can build on for the rest of the season.'

Oregon junior Kathy Cho tied for 37th at plus-14 after shooting a 78 Wednesday.

The Ducks return to action March 5-6 at the GTE 'Mo'morial in Houston, Texas.
