Cardinal Women In Sixth At Pac-10 Championships
April 25, 2006
Tucson, Ariz. - The Stanford women's golf team struggled today at the Pac-10 Championships, shooting a 311, dropping them to eighth place overall with a team score of 610. UCLA leads the field with a two-over par 578, followed by Arizona State (586), California (594), USC (595) and Oregon State (605).
'It was a solid round, but we struggled based on scores,' said head coach Caroline O'Connor. 'We have some ground to make up tomorrow.'
Once again freshman Mari Chun turned in a solid round of 74 and is tied for 10th with a 147 (73-74).
'Today, I was driving pretty accurate,' said Chun. 'I had a few unforced errors that caused me to go over par. I started off rough, two over, after two holes and ended two over. I tried to make a comeback. Hopefully, I'll come in with red numbers tomorrow.'
Stanford's Jennifer Tangtiphaiboontana is tied for 19th with a 151 (74-77) after two rounds of play. Teammate Lauren Todd is tied for 34th at 156 (76-80) while Ki-Shui Liao is tied for 37th with a 157 (76-81). Cardinal Kelly Husted is 40th overall with a 159 (79-80).
