Women's Golf In 12th After One Round At Stanford Intercollegiate

Oct. 20, 2000

STANFORD, Calif. - - Oregon State women's golfer Carina Olsson is tied for eighth at the Stanford Pepsi Intercollegiate tournament after shooting an opening-round 72. The Beavers are in 12th place after recording a 310 on Friday.

'Carina hit the ball well and played solid golf,' OSU head coach Rise Lakowske said. 'The course was playing long and it was very wet. The rest of the team struggled a bit.'

Olsson's 72 was her lowest round of the year thus far and tied the second-lowest round of her career. She shot 37-35 on the par 72, 6,154-yard Stanford Golf Course.

Freshman Laura Skinner posted a 77 to forge a tie for 45th, while Melanie Furuta and Marylyn Brand shot 80 and 81, respectively. Stacie Ferguson carded an 84 on the day.

'We're looking for better things tomorrow,' Lakowske said. 'We're making progress.'

In the team competition, Arizona blistered the course with an 11-under 277 to take a 15-stroke lead over second-place Stanford.

Arizona also boasts the top three individuals, Lorena Ochoa is in the lead after carding a 66, while teammate Natalie Gulbis is one shot back at 67 and Cristina Baena resides in third after a 2-under 70.

Play resumes Saturday morning with 18 holes, and concludes with the final 18 on Sunday.
