Beavers Finish Up Season At Pac-10 Championships
April 21, 2004
SOMIS, Calif.- - The Oregon State women's golf team concluded its season Wednesday, finishing tenth at the Pac-10 Championships with a team total of 989 at the Saticoy Country Club.
Senior Laura Skinner, playing in her last collegiate tournament, fired a 78 in her final round and finished tied for 43rd with a 246. Skinner closed out the final nine holes in fine fashion with two birdies and three pars on her last five holes.
Sophomore Leah Whiting posted a final-round 80 and a three-round total of 244, leading the Beavers in a tie for 41st.
Freshman Lindsay Eide, playing in her first Pac-10 Championships, finished just one stroke behind Whiting in 45th.
'We were not prepared enough for this golf course,' said head coach Risï¿½ Lakowske, referring to the speedy greens.
'Laura played well today in her final round as a Beaver. She had a lot of putts, which accounted for a lot of her score, but she did a good job.
'The other teams just got better as the tournament went on and we weren't able to keep up, which is too bad.'
Second-ranked UCLA (Golfweek) led wire-to-wire to win the team title by 18 strokes over California, winner of last year's Pac-10s. Arizona came in third.
Second-round co-leaders and teammates Charlotte Mayorkas and Hannah Jun of UCLA flipped spots on the final day as Mayorkas carded a 1-over 73 to take home individual medalist honors. Jun finished two strokes back. Mayorkas is UCLA's first individual medalist in 13 years.
Lakowske's final thoughts for the season:
'We have a lot of work to do before next season.'
