Women’s Golf Sets Record, Sewell Ties One


PEORIA, Ariz. The Oregon State women’s golf team set a school record with a 5-under 283 and senior Lauren Sewell tied the lowest score in school history with a 4-under 68 in the morning round of the Westbrook Spring Invitational on Sunday.
The Beavers crushed the previous record of 2-under 282 that was set in 2011 at the Stanford Intercollegiate, as they took advantage of perfect weather conditions to fire s 5-under 283 at the par-72, 6,269-yard Westbrook Village Golf Club. Oregon State couldn’t find the magic in the afternoon round as it shot a 9-over 297 to put the Beavers in sixth place in the 14-team field with a 4-over 580.

“We had a record day this morning and then weren't able to follow it up as well this afternoon,” Oregon State head coach Risë Alexander said. “However, I believe this was a preview of what this team can do when they commit to their plan and believe in themselves. We just need to continue to do the hard work of training and preparing to be in a those situations every day. Learning doesn't happen overnight and we definitely had a great lesson in perseverance today.
“I also believe that last week was helpful in that we were able to play a great golf course and actually got on some grass that was dry. This time next year we will have our new indoor center and weather won't affect our play as much during February and March. Hopefully the flooding at Trysting Tree will subside and we can begin preparation for UCLA. But, first things first. We are going to prepare for tomorrow.”
