Morgan Leads UW to Second-Place Start at Pac-10 Golf

April 19, 2004

Somis, CA - Led by senior Lindsay Morgan's opening round 3-over 75, the 13th-ranked Washington women's golf team is in second place after the first 18 holes of competition at the Pac-10 Championships. Despite shooting 21-over 309, the Huskies trail second-ranked UCLA by just one stroke on the leaderboard. This year's championship is being held at the par-72, 6,405-yard Saticoy Country Club in Somis, Calif.

Stanford shot 310 to stand in third place while USC, Arizona State and California each posted scores of 312 to tie for fourth. Arizona is seventh at 314 while Oregon is eighth at 320. Oregon State is ninth at 332 and Washington State is 10th at 334.

Morgan's 75 puts her in a three-way tie for sixth place. Arizona's Erica Blasberg was the only golfer in the field who managed to better par. She leads the individual stroke play championship with a 1-under 71. Stanford's Angela Rho is second at 73.

'The greens are treacherous and it was windy, so it was pretty tough conditions,' said Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur. ' They had some pins cut three paces from the edge and it was just the first day of the tournament. You have to be patient. Sometimes it is not going to go your way. Our players did a good job of not getting rattled today. They played pretty well all things considered.'

Husky sophomore Sung Ea Lee carded a 5-over 77 to finish 11th while freshman Amber Prange shot 78 and is tied for 12th. Paige Mackenzie finished at 79 and is tied for 20th while Ashley Bickerton shot 84.

The second round of the championship will take place Tuesday and the final 18 holes will be played Wednesday. Washington's best finish at the event was a third-place showing in 1988. Last season the Huskies placed eighth in the 10-team field, led by Lee's eighth-place finish.
