March 26, 2003

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. - The Washington State women's golf team finished in 13th place at the Bruin Classic at the Par-72, 6,270 yard Robinson Ranch Golf Course at Santa Clarita, Calif., Wednesday.

Maria Kostina (76-80-74, +14) led the Cougars with a tie for 23rd place and garnered her fourth consecutive Top 25 finish to start out her young WSU career. Kim Welch (74-80-81, +19) finished in a tie for 34th along with Jay-Lee Longbottom (75-81-79, +19), followed by Katharine Dorris (85-83-81, +33) at a tie for 78th, and Stephanie Parsley (88-88-82, +42) at a tie for 89th.

Washington State shot a final round score of 315, improving their round total by nine strokes over the second, and finishing ahead of Pac-10 rival Oregon. Pepperdine finished as team champion at 34-over (898).

The squad fought tough competition in the 20-team field that Head Coach Walt Williams said, 'Would help determine who gets into Regional competition, and who doesn't.'

The Cougars take the greens once again April 7-8 at the Utah Dixie Classic at St. George, Utah.
