Behind Alvarez, Huskies 14th At Wildcat Invite

Feb. 24, 2009

PUERTO PENASCO, Sonora, Mexico -- The Husky women's golf team shot a final round 305, which contributed to a three-day team total of 927 and 14th place at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational on Tuesday.

Sophomore Anya Alvarez was the University of Washington's lowest scorer, shooting a three-round 229. Following her in the UW finishes were freshman Sadena Parks (233) and junior Molly Aronsson (233) in a tie for 50th place, sophomore Karinn Dickinson (236) in 63rd place and sophomore Katie Saucier (256) in 84th place.

'Overall, it wasn't a bad weekend for us,' said UW head coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'We had a rough start, but our scores improved every day. We had girls get going, but we just couldn't get everybody going at the same time.'

Winning the team competition was UCLA, which shot a tournament score of 869. Individuals Lizzette Salas of USC and Jodi Ewart of New Mexico each carded a 3-under 213 to split the medalist honor.

The Huskies, ranked No. 33 by Golfweek, will look to build off of their performance at the Wildcat Invite next week, as the play in the Spartan Invitational, which is hosted by San Jose State, March 9 and 10 at the Almaden Golf and Country Club.
