Sunday's final round starts at 7:30 a.m. This tournament is good preparation for the Pac-10 Championship, which ASU hosts April 20-22.

FRESHMAN HUARTE HOLD DOWN #1 SPOT FOR 2ND TIME
For the second time this season, freshman Sarah Huarte has been awarded the No. 1 spot in Cal's lineup. In the fall, she held down the No. 1 spot at the Stanford Intercollegiate. Being awarded the No. 1 position this week comes on the heels of Huarte's team-best sixth-place finish (218) at the Pioneer Classic. Her previous 54-hole PR was a 228.

PIONEER CLASSIC IN REVIEW
Cal turned in one of the best performances in the program's six-year history with a fourth-place finish at the 18-team Pioneer Classic, March 12-13. Despite finishing 13 strokes behind tournament winner No. 9 Pepperdine (873), Cal matched its school record for 54 holes of 896 and set a new Cal mark for 36 holes (595). The previous Cal record for 36 holes of 597 was established at BYU in 1998 and at the 2000 Oregon State Invitational.
