Beavs Move Up To Ninth On Final Day Of Pac-10s

Stacie Ferguson's final-round 74 paced the Oregon State women's golf team on Wednesday, helping the Beavers to a ninth-place finish at the Pac-10 Championships with a score of 958.

OSU carded a 309 in the final round to move ahead of Oregon by eight shots and finish 20 shots back of Washington State, who was eighth.

Ferguson and Ashlei Pendleton tied for 41st overall, each carding a 239 over the 54-hole tournament at the par-72 Walla Walla Country Club.

In her first two Pac-10 Championships, Ferguson tied for 14th as a freshman and 13th as a sophomore.

Pendleton shot 79 on Wednesday after opening with a 76 Monday, but sandwiched a second-round 84 in between and fell from the top 20.

Laura Skinner and Kelly Ferris shot 241 and 244, respectively, to tie for 47th and 49th overall.

Skinner's final-round 77 along with Ferris' 79 gave OSU four players in the 70s in the same round for the first time during the championships.

Freshman Alex Lucio carded an 80 in the final-round for a total of 247 and a finish of 52nd, while sophomore Marylyn Brand shot 246 while playing as an individual.

Arizona State's Jimin Kang jumped into the medalist lead with a final-round 70 and managed to fend off top-ranked Lorena Ochoa, who finished second. Kang won by a stroke with an even-par 216.

Arizona earned an eight-shot win over UCLA by shooting 891, including a 294 Wednesday.
