USC Eighth After Arizona Wildcat Invitational First Round

Feb. 25, 2008

Freshman Lizette Salas is tied for 14th and sophomore Stefanie Endstrasser is tied for 19th as they led the No. 4 USC women's golf team on the first day of the 2008 Wildcat Invitational at the Arizona National G.C. in Tucson on Monday (Feb. 25).

USC is in eighth at 12-over 296, nine shots back of first-place No. 3 Arizona State (287). The highly competitive field includes No. 1 UCLA, No. 2 Duke, No. 7 Auburn, host No. 8 Arizona, No. 12 Cal, No. 18 Pepperdine and No. 19 Vanderbilt.

Salas' 1-over 72 included three birdies. She was 2-under with five holes to go during a first round that started on the 10th hole, but lost a bit of ground with a triple bogey on the par 5 5th hole. She is five shots off the lead.

Endstrasser's 2-over 73 opened with a 2-over on the front 9, but was even on the back 9, thanks in part to a pair of birdies.

Sophomore Belen Mozo is tied for 30th at 3-over 74. She battled back from a 4-over front 9 to go 1-under on the back 9.

Senior Dewi Claire Schreefel is tied for 50th at 6-over 77 and senior Paola Moreno is tied for 64th at 7-over 78.

Playing individually (and not counting toward the team totals), freshman Joanne Lee is tied for 39th at 4-over 75 and junior Victoria Alimonda is tied for 64th at 7-over 78.

USC is seeking its fifth consecutive top 3 finish. It has finished no lower than sixth in any event this season.
