The Oregon State women's golf team finished 13th with a strong final round in sunny conditions in the Bruin Wave Invitational. Sophomore Whitney French shot a 4-over 76 to finish tied with teammate Brittany Stewart for 55th overall.

'Whitney hung in there today,' head coach Ris¸ Lakowske said. 'She had a couple situations where she had to take a couple of penalty strokes out of the hazard. Brittany is hitting the ball well, it is just about managing the golf course better. Both are finding their games and making some really good improvements in their decision making in their games.'

The Beavers posted rounds of 310, 311 and a final round score of 320 for a tournament total of 32-over 941. USC won the tournament with a (286-294-286) 866 in the three-day event.

'They have been hitting the ball much better than they are scoring. We want to continue working on finishing with lower scores.'

French finished the tournament with a three-day score of (77-80-76) 233 to tie with Stewart (75-75-83) 233 for 55th place. Elyse Okada finished (79-79-82) 240 nad Lauren Archer was (79-77-85) 241. Freshman Christy Fogerty improved her final round score by seven strokes to finish at (82-86-79) 247.

The Beavers are right back on the course next week at the UNLV Spring Invitational at the Boulder Creek Golf Course, Mar. 8-10.
