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.
Washington's lineup for this year's event includes freshman Kim Shin, junior Paige Mackenzie, sophomores Ashley Bickerton and Amber Prange and junior Sung Ea Lee. Washington's Courtney McCracken and Amy Wang will compete as individuals.
