Beavers Sit Sixth Heading into Final Round at Washington State
Sept. 22, 2009
PULLMAN, Wash. -
After two rounds at the Washington State University Inland Cup, the Oregon State women's golf team is tied for sixth place after a tough round Tuesday. The Beavers have shot a two-round total of 627 (309-318) on the par 72 - 6,126 yard Palouse Ridge Golf Course.
'It's early in the season, but we need to learn to manage the golf course better,' head coach Rise Lakowske said. 'We need to come back out tomorrow with a new game plan and execute it.'
The second annual Washington State University Inland Cup is a 54-hole, three-day tournament running from Mon., Sept. 21 through Wed., Sept. 23.
Senior Lauren Archer bounced back today from Monday's round of 80 to card a team-best four-over-par 76 recording a pair of birdies on the back nine. Her first birdie of the tournament came on the 12th hole, a hole which has caused problems for the field throughout the tournament. She improved nine spots on the leader board tying for 18th overall.
Kayla Mortellaro took the tournament lead from teammate Amanda Jacobs after shooting a 1-under-71 leaving her 1-over for the tournament. As a team, Idaho, which was tied with the Beavers for third entering the day, moved into the lead as the team tallied a 4-over-par 292 on Tuesday to take a 12-stroke lead.
The Beavers resume play Wednesday morning at 8:45 for the final round of play.
