Husky Women's Golfers Still 20th Place at NCAAs

May 24, 2001

Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. - The Washington women's golf team's hopes of moving up in the field at the NCAA Championships fell short on Thursday when the Huskies shot 310 to stay in 20th place after three rounds. Washington enters Friday's final round at the Mission Inn Golf Resort in Howey--in-the-Hills, Fla. at 66-over par 930.

Junior Kelli Kamimura led Washington on Thursday with a 1-over 73, her best round of the tournament. She is tied for 51st at 229 after three rounds. Lindsay Morgan shot 8-over 80 to fall back to 73rd place at 233. Louise Friberg shot 5-over 77 to total 237 and stand 92nd. Michelle Grafos was 8-over 80 and is tied for 100th at 239. Senior Elisha Au shot 82 on Thursday for a three-day total of 250 for 116th place.

'We had hoped to move up in the standings today, but we did not have the type of round that we needed,' said Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'It was good to see Kelli turn in a better round. She has played really well for us this spring and I think she'll post another good round tomorrow.'

Duke shot 2-over 290, the low score for the third round, to increase its lead to four strokes over second-place Georgia. The Blue Devils enter the final round with an 18-over score of 882. Texas and Auburn are tied for third at 888.

In the hunt for medalist honors, LSU's Katy Harris shot her second straight round of 70 to finish at 4-under 212 and wrestle the lead away from UCLA's Laura Moffat. Moffat, who led the field the first two days with back-to-back 69s, shot 75 on Thursday to trail Harris by one shot. Arizona State's Jimin Kang carded a 70 on Thursday to enter the final round tied with Auburn's Celeste Troche at 214.

The final round of the championship will be played Friday. The Huskies will once again tee off in the afternoon session.
