Husky Golfers Finish Second Against Strong Field at Stanford

Oct. 19, 2003

Stanford, CA - The Washington women's golf team crushed the school scoring record by 24 strokes to finish second to top-ranked Duke at the Stanford Intercollegiate. Washington finished higher than five other teams ranked in the top 10 of this week's Golfweek rankings.

The Huskies and Blue Devils battled for most of the day before a handful of bogies late in the round cost Washington a shot at the tournament championship. Duke shot 286 on Sunday to win the tournament at 19-under 845. Washington carded a final-round score of 290 to finish five strokes behind the Blue Devils.

UCLA, ranked fifth in the Golfweek standings, was third at 5-under 859. Sixth-ranked California was fourth at 869 while fourth-ranked New Mexico was fifth at 875 and second-ranked Arizona was sixth at 878.

Washington's overall score of 850 bettered its previous best 54-hole total by 24 strokes. The Huskies set their old scoring mark of 874 at the Stanford Intercollegiate in 2001.

Washington's Paige Mackenzie led Washington's effort, placing third overall at 6-under 210. She finished one stroke behind co-medalists Erica Blasberg of Arizona and Elizabeth Janangelo of Duke. Mackenzie's finish was the best of her collegiate career. Her three-round total was eight strokes better than her previous best tournament score. Mackenzie had rounds of 71, 68 and 71. Her second-round score, that included an ace, was her lowest as a collegiate.

The Huskies started the tournament by shooting 280 during the first round and matching that score in the second round to trail the Blue Devils by one stroke heading into Sunday's final round. Washington's opening scores set 18-hole scoring records, bettering the previous mark by five strokes.

'We were right with Duke up until the final few holes, so in one sense it was disappointing not to finish the tournament with a win,' said Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'But you have to look at the larger picture. This was a quality field and it feels really good to come back and play to our potential after the way we performed last week in our on tournament.'

The Huskies were ninth at UW's Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational, never scoring better than 300 during any single round of the event.

Sung Ea Lee shot 2-under 70 on Sunday to finish 11th overall at 1-under 215. Her score bettered her previous best tournament finish by five strokes. Lindsay Morgan was 15th at even-par 216. Freshman Amber Prange, who posted back-to-back 69s during the first two rounds, shot 79 Sunday to finish 18th at 1-over 217. Ashley Bickerton was 30th at 5-over 221 and Amy Wang, competing as a non-scoring player, was 46th at 9-over 225.

Washington golfers shot under-par scores during nine of their possible 15 rounds.

Mackenzie's ace during the second round marked the third consecutive competition a Husky golfer has managed a hole-in-one. Lindsay Morgan had one during the team's international tour in Scotland and Prange carded one during the Ihlanfeldt Invitational.

'I know there's really no record for such things, but I just can't image that's happened to anyone before,' Mulflur said. 'I've told the other golfers, 'Well, now it's your turns.''
