Husky Women Finish 9th at Pac-10s
April 26, 2009
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The University of Washington women's golf team will have to wait until Monday to see if it will move on to the NCAA Regional tournament after placing ninth at the Pac-10 Championship on Sunday.
'It was a disappointing weekend,' said UW coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'There were times when it looked like we were going to turn it around and post some solid numbers, but we just didn't follow through on it.'
The Huskies shot a 305-301-307 913 over the three-day event. While consistency was hard to find for the Dawgs, junior Molly Aronsson and sophomore Anya Alvarez remained near the top of the leader board most of the tournament. Aronsson finished tied for 20th place (74-73-76 223) and was the Huskies' top finisher, while Alvarez tied for 24th. Following those two were Christina Yoon (75-77-77 229) in 33rd place, Karin Dickinson (81-86-78 245) in 48th and Sadena Parks (92-77-80 249) in 50th.
Winning the tournament was Arizona State, which shot an even-par 852 over three rounds. Sun Devil Calota Ciganda defeated teammate Jennifer Osborn and Jennifer Song of USC in the first playoff hole for medalist honors.
The winner of the conference tournament earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Regional tournament, while the rest will listen to the selection committee Monday afternoon to see if their season will continue.
