Husky Golfers Host Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational
Oct. 3, 2003
Seattle - The Washington women's golf team plays host to the 22nd annual Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational Oct. 6-8 at the par-72, 5,953-yard Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish Wash. The 54-hole event is Washington's only home tournament of the 2003-2004 season.
The 15-team field for this year's event includes Arizona, Arizona State, BYU, California, Long Beach State, Nevada, Oregon, Oregon State, San Francisco, Southern California, Stanford, Washington, Washington State, UCLA and UNLV.
Last season USC won the event by 15 strokes over Washington. The Trojans shot 9-over 885 and where led by medalist Mikaela Parmild, who shot 5-under 214 at the Tacoma Country and Golf Club. Husky senior Louise Friberg finished seventh at 3-over 222. USC's team title marked the third consecutive time the Trojans have won the tournament.
The Ihlanfeldt Invitational will include a practice round on Sunday at noon. Monday and Wednesday's rounds will start at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday's second round will begin at 10:15 a.m. Live scoring of the event will be available at GolfStat.com.
The Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational is named for the founder of the Washington women's golf program. One of the Pacific Northwest's most honored golfer, Ihlanfeldt started the UW program in 1974 before retiring seven years later in 1981. Ihlanfeldt never accepted payment for his work as the Huskies' coach. She donated her salary back into the program to fund scholarships.
The Huskies have never won the team title at the Ihlanfeldt Invitational, but two Washington players have turned in the best individual score. Nancy Kessler won the individual title in 1987 and Dodie Mazzuca, on the strength of a final-round score of 65, tied Stanford's Andrea Baxter for medalist honors in 1996. Mazzuca's 65 still stands as the lowest 18-hole score in the event's history.
Washington's lineup for this year's event includes freshmen Ashley Bickerton and Amber Prange, sophomore Sung Ea Lee, junior Paige Mackenzie and senior Lindsay Morgan. The tournament marks the return of Mackenzie to collegiate golf after being sidelined last year due to a back injury. Courtney McCracken and Amy Wang will compete as non-scoring players for Washington.
