Huskies Move Up In Rainy Hawai'i
Nov. 3, 2009
KAHUKU, Hawai'i - The Washington Husky women's golf team rebounded from Monday's tough first round of the Turtle Bay Collegiate Invitational and moved up four spots to 13th in the team standings on Tuesday. Washington shot a combined 12-over 300 in the second round, 12-strokes better than Monday's first round.
The teams were greeted this morning by morning rains that delayed the start of the tournement. The Husky contingent trudged through the sloppy conditions, teeing off on the back nine, and struggled early out of the gates. The group collectively shot a 16-over on their first nine holes, but showed remarkable improvement on the second nine.
'I think this morning we weren't ready to go and got in the mentality that we weren't going to play because of the rain,' said Husky women's golf coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'Once we started playing, it took us a while to get rolling. I'm happy we ended strong, but we have to be ready to work hard from the start.'
Parks' day was highlighted by an eagle on the Par-4 hole No. 3. Overall, the Huskies combined for an eagle, four birdies, four bogeys and a triple bogey.
Alvarez is the Huskies' best player in the standings, tied for 25th after two rounds.
UC-Davis leads the team scoring at 5-under and is led by tournament leader Demi Runas at 7-under 137.
Tomorrow's final round marks the Huskies' last round of fall action.
