Mackenzie Finishes Fourth at Stanford
Oct. 23, 2005
Stanford, CA -
Washington senior Paige Mackenzie has always enjoyed playing the Stanford Golf Course and this weekend was no exception. Mackenzie equaled her career best tournament score, shooting 3-under 210 to place fourth at the Stanford/Pepsi Intercollegiate.
It was the only bright spot for the Huskies who faded during Sunday's final round, dropping back five spots on the leaderboard for an 11th-place finish. Washington finished the three-day, 54-hole affair at 894. Top-ranked Duke ran away with the team title, shooting 18-under 834 to compile a 27-shot victory over second-place UCLA.
The Huskies shot 21-over 305 during Sunday's final round after posting scores of 296 and 293 during the first two days of play.
Mackenzie's score marked the third consecutive season she has shot 210 at the Stanford Intercollegiate. It ties her other two marks as the second best tournament score in UW history.
Currently ranked the No. 1 collegiate player in the nation, Mackenzie has also turned in her all-time single-round scores at Stanford. She posted a 67 there at the 2004 NCAA West Regional and repeated that effort at last fall's invitational.
Mackenzie's finish was her 19th top-10 effort during her career. She now stands second on UW's all-time record list and needs one more top-10 showing to tie former Husky All-American Kelli Kamimura for the lead on that list.
Duke dominated the individual play at the tournament. Elizabeth Janangelo ran away with medalist honors, shooting 11-under 202, including final round 65. Blue Devil teammates Anna Grzebien and Amanda Blumenherst tied for second at 209, one shot ahead of Mackenzie.
Washington's finish marked the first time since April of 2003 the Huskies failed to finish in the top-10 during a regular-season tournament.
The Huskies will participate in the National Match Play Championships Nov. 11-13 in Orlando, Fla., in their final fall tournament.
