Cho Ties for 14th at Lady Aztec Invitational
Feb. 18, 2002
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Kathy Cho's 6-over 79 Monday wasn't pretty, but it was good enough to give the senior from Honolulu, Hawaii, her best finish as a Duck. Cho tied for 14th at 159 as Oregon finished 17th at the Lady Aztec Invitational, played at the 6,040-yard, par-73 Lake San Marcos Country Club.
Cho' s previous best finish was a tie for 19th at the 2000 Hawaii Fall Classic. Cho's 79 Monday was one of just 24 sub-80 rounds turned in as bad weather continued to plague the tournament. Freshman Jess Carlyon finished 65th at 170, sophomore Lacy Erickson was tied for 77th at 173 and junior Annie Davis, making her UO golf debut after spending the last two-and-a-half years on the track team, tied for 85th at 176.
First round leader Colorado State held on to win the team title with a 626. The Rams defeated Washington by two strokes.
Oregon will return to action March 4-6 at the Spartan Invitational.
