Husky Golfers Travel to Stanford

Oct. 15, 2003

Seattle - The Washington women's golf team plays its second tournament of the season when the Huskies travel to Stanford for the Pepsi Intercollegiate Oct. 17-19. The 54-hole tournament will be held at the par-72, 6,168-yard Stanford Golf Course. The field for this year's event includes Arizona, Arizona State, California, Duke, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Oregon, Oregon State, Pepperdine, San Jose State, Stanford, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State.

California won last year's tournament by two strokes over Vanderbilt. The Golden Bears shot 885. Washington was third at 890. Arizona's Erica Blasberg took medalist honors with a 5-under score of 211. Washington was led by Louise Friberg, who finished fourth at 4-over 220.

The Huskies hope to improve on their first outing this year when they placed ninth at their own Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational. Washington junior Paige Mackenzie was the Huskies' top finisher at 17th. Sophomore Sung Ea Lee was 42nd at 238 while senior Lindsay Morgan placed 56th at 245. UW freshmen Ashley Bickerton and Amber Prange were 21st and 34th, respectively.

'We will take those five and also travel Amy Wang to play as an individual,' says Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'It was nice the see the freshman have solid starts, but we need to get better, more consistent play from our veterans if we are going to content for championships.'
