Golf Finishes On A High Note In Arizona
Feb. 23, 2010
TUCSON, Ariz. - The Husky women's golf team wrapped up the rain-shortened Wildcat Invitational on Tuesday by shooting a 307 and moved up two spots on the leaderboard into 14th place.
The field at Arizona National had to battle Mother Nature on both Monday and Tuesday. They endured a rain-soaked course that shortened Monday from 54 holes to 18. Today, the golfers first waited out an hour frost delay before the winds kicked up and made the course extra tough.
'I was talking to some of the coaches and we all kind of thought that today par was about 75 instead of 71,' said Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'So, Karinn [Dickinson] played really well. That 73 she had today was really good.'
Dickinson, a junior from Mulkiteo, Wash., was able to shoot 2-over despite carding a double bogey and bogey down the stretch. She finished highest among Huskies in 27th place and carded three birdies on the day.
Anya Alvarez was the Dawgs next highest finisher, carding a 4-over 75 in the final round and tying for 48th overall.
Just three golfers finished the two rounds under par, led by Caroline Hedwall of Oklahoma State who won the tournment by five strokes after shooting a combined 6-under 136.
Arizona State won the team title shooting an impressive +8 (576) to win by 12 shots over host Arizona. Stanford and Cal were next in the standings giving the Pac-10 a sweep of the top-four team spots.
Washington returns home for a short stay before hitting the road to play in the UCLA/Pepperdine Invitational next week from March 1-3.
