Alvarez In Sixth Place At Stanford Intercollegiate
Oct. 17, 2009
STANFORD, Calif. - Anya Alvarez shot a 2-under 69 and is tied for sixth and the Washington Husky women's golf team is fifth overall after two rounds of the Stanford Intercollegiate at the Stanford Golf Course.
Alvarez recorded her second under-par round of the tournament and had three birdies on the day. She hit the green in regulation on 17 holes, but was only able to convert several short putts into birdies.
'She's playing really well,' said Husky head coach Mary Lou Mulflur of Alvarez, who is 3-under 139 overall. 'But she can't buy a putt. That's frustrating for her, but she knows if she keeps going it'll turn.'
Arizona State's Carlota Ciganda and Vanderbilt's Marina Alex share the lead at 5-under 137 overall. Three golfers are 4-under par, while Alvarez is joined by two others at 3-under par.
Washington began the day in fifth place and did not lose or gain any ground. The Huskies are +11, 579 overall, six strokes behind fourth-place Vanderbilt and five strokes ahead of sixth-place USC. ASU has four players under par and are in first as a team at 13-under-par 555.
The Huskies next highest player on the leaderboard is senior Molly Aronsson. She followed a career-best 69 on Friday with a 3-over 74 on Saturday and is tied for 17th. Aronsson had a team-best four birdies on the day, but was forced to count a triple bogey on No. 11.
Redshirt-freshman Brittany Tallman bounced back from a first round 85 with a 76 on Saturday and is in 77th place.
The Huskies will start their final round at 8:15 a.m. on Sunday.
