March 22, 2003
EUGENE, Ore. - The Oregon women's golf team heads to Santa Clarita, Calif., for the UCLA/Pioneer Electronics Classic that will be played Monday through Wednesday at the 6,254-yard, par-72 Robinson Ranch Country Club. Teams will play 18 holes each day.
The Ducks are coming off their lowest round of the season, a 299 on the final day of the Oregon Duck Invitational two weeks ago. Oregon will field the same team that had the 299, freshmen Therese Wenslow, Erin Andrews and Michelle Timpani, sophomore Johnna Nealy and junior Lacy Erickson.
'We're coming off a good showing at the Duck Invitational and we'd like to continue that momentum,' said coach Shannon Rouillard. 'We're starting to find out who our most consistent five players are.'
Six of the top 14 teams in the latest Golfweek poll are in the field, including No. 2 Pepperdine, No. 5 USC, No. 9 California, No. 12 Washington, No. 13 New Mexico and No. 14 UCLA. The remainder of the 18-team field includes Brigham Young, UC Irvine, Cal State Northridge, Long Beach State, New Mexico State, Oregon, Oregon State, Portland State, San Francisco, San Jose State, Texas Tech and Washington State.
The Ducks finished eighth at last year's UCLA Classic, which was their highest finish of the season.
