Beavers Finish Fall Season at Turtle Bay
Nov. 4, 2009
KAHUKU, Hawai'i -
The Oregon State women's golf team finished tied for 17th at the Turtle Bay College Invitational. Lauren Archer fired a 1-over-par 73 on the 6,361-yard Arnold Palmer Course to lead the Beavers as they wrapped up the fall season.
Archer's 73 Wednesday left her with a three-round total of (83-81-73) 237 for the tournament.
'Lauren had a really good day,' head coach Rise Lakowske said. 'She finished the fall on a very difficult golf course on a positive note. She didn't strike the ball particularly well, but she did a great job of managing the course.'
The Beavers shot rounds of 314, 313 and a final round score of 321 for a tournament total 84-over par 948. UC Davis, which won the tournament, shot 868 in the three-day event.
'This was a big disappointment, we expected to finish in the top 10 here. There need to be some changes made and we're going to make them.... so much more capable than this. We're determined to do better in the spring. We'll work hard to be more mentally tough and determined to not let.
Other OSU scores included sophomore Whitney French's (78-75-83) 236, junior Cara Freeman's (75-80-82) 237, freshman Chelsey Lind's (78-82-83) 243 and senior Brittany Stewart's (83-77-86) 246 respectively.
The Turtle Bay College Invitational is Oregon State's last fall event. The Beavers will return to action Feb. 21-23 at the Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Classic at Kiawah Island, S.C.
'This was a big disappointment. I realistically expected to finish in the top 10 here and we didn't,' Lakowske said. 'There needs to be some changes made in our approach and we're going to make them. This team is much more capable than this. We'll work hard on both the mental and physical parts of the game to improve through the winter. We're determined to be better when we start playing in the spring. We'll work hard to be more mentally tough and are determined not to let something like this happen again.'
