Women's Golf Finishes Seventh At Verizon 'Mo' Morial

March 6, 2001

HOUSTON, Texas - The Oregon women's golf team got tremendous final rounds from Jerilyn White and Dawn Berry on Tuesday, leaving the Ducks in seventh place after the final day of the Verizon 'Mo' Morial, being played at the Pine Forest Country Club. White shot a 71, her lowest round of the tournament. Berry notched a 73.

Oregon shot the low round of the day, a 302, to finish with a 939 composite, 22 strokes behind winner Indiana.

White's third place finish, matched the best of her collegiate golf career, and came on the heels of a seventh place finish two weeks ago the Arizona Invitational. The senior from Salem, Ore. had her other third place finish at the 2000 Colby Invitational.

It was the best finish for Berry, a senior from Calgary, Alberta, since a third place showing at the 1999 Colby Invitational, more than two years ago.

'I couldnt be happier with the way we finished,' said Oregon head coach Shannon Rouillard. 'I goes to show what we can really shoot when we put all together. It's still a work in process.'

'Jerilyn and Dawn played extremely well today. They really came through in the clutch. We were in a difficult situation after 36, but we came back and played with a lot of heart and intensity.'

Kansas State's Christine Boucher won the individual championship, shooting a tournament low 70 in the final round.

Up next for the Ducks is the UCLA Bruin Classic, on March 12-13 in Temecula, California.
