Eneroth Wins Regional Preview

April 1, 2008

LINCOLN, Calif. - Junior Amy Eneroth finished in first place at the Regional Preview Tuesday, and fired the only sub-par score of the tournament to lead the Washington State University women's golf team.

Eneroth, a native of Spokane, Wash., cruised to a two-shot victory at the par-72, 6,018-yard Lincoln Hills Golf Club with the help of her second round score of 68, the lowest score of both the tournament and her career. Eneroth also finished with a 1-under par 215, the lowest three-round total of her career.

'Eneroth is really getting better as the season progresses,' Head Coach Walt Williams said. 'She has been improving over the last three years so it's really no surprise. She is a hard worker and a very determined competitor.'

As a team the Cougars combined for a total score of 907 and finished in sixth place at the future site of the NCAA West Regional, hosted by Sacramento State. WSU was only six strokes from cracking the top two teams overall.

'If the women make it back to the NCAA West Regional, this preview tournament will be a tremendous benefit,' Williams said. 'We got some good confidence rounds in this week and also got a taste for how difficult this golf course can be.'

Eneroth earned her second victory of the season and the third of her career. With her dominant performance, Eneroth now sits in a tie for third on the tournament wins in a season list (two) and is tied for second with former Cougar and All-American Anastasia Kostina on the career wins list with three.

Thus far, Eneroth has amassed 16 career top 10 and 25 career top 25 finishes which moves her into sole possession of third on the all-time top 25 list.

Junior Jessica Black also fared well for the Cougars and fired a three-round total of 224 (+6), good for 20th overall. With the top 25 finish, Black now has 12 in her career and is only one away from cracking the all-time top 10.

Seniors Tracy Broders and Brooke Henderson fired two-day totals of 233 and 236, respectively. Sophomore Diana Hong ended the tournament with 240 and rounded out the Cougar contingent.

The women are back in action April 11-12, when they travel back to California for the Barnard Intercollegiate, hosted by Stanford University.
