Huskies In A Tough Spot After Round 1
Oct. 17, 2008
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- With a combined score of 296, the Husky women are in 15th place after the first round of the Stanford Intercollegiate at Stanford Golf Course on Friday.
Leading the Dawgs was Karinn Dickinson, who shot a 1-over 72 and eagled the 12th hole to end day one in a tie for 34th place. Dickinson was followed immediately by teammates Anya Alvarez (+2, 73) and Molly Aronsson (+3, 74).
'We showed that we could play out there, and the course was scorable,' said UW head coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'We had a couple of scores that were there -- it's just a matter of getting the others to come around.'
Leading the tournament field, which includes nine teams ranked in the top 25, is UCLA at 7-under. The individual leader is Oklahoma State's Caroline Masson, who shot a 6-under 65.
'It's a tough field,' Mulflur said. 'We can't get too caught up in where we are in the standings, but we don't like our position, and hopefully we can change that tomorrow.'
Rounding out the Husky scorers were Nicole Ferrero, who shot a 77 and Christina Yoon, who shot a 78. The Stanford Intercollegiate will continue tomorrow with UW teeing off from the 10th hole starting at 10:05 a.m. and finishing at 10:41. The Huskies play in a group with Oregon State and team individuals. Live scoring is available at golfstat.com.
