Husky Women Seventh After Day 1
April 24, 2009
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The first day of the Pac-10 Championship didn't go as well as the Huskies had hoped on Friday, as they finished in seventh place, shooting a 21-over 305.
'Today we grinded,' said UW head coach Mary Lou Mulflur. 'Some of the girls grinded even though they didn't hit the ball as well as they could. Molly Aronsson and Anya in particular, finished pretty good and didn't really have their top game.
Leading the three-day event is UCLA, which ended Day 1 at 5-over JKL and there is a three-way tie for first place between Arizona State's Carlota Ciganda, Southern California's Jennifer Song and UCLA's Stephanie Kono.
Leading the way for the Huskies is junior Molly Aronsson, who is tied for 13th place with a 3-over performance. She is followed by Anya Alvarez and Christina Yoon, who are 4-over and tied for 21st place. Karinn Dickinson is in a tie for 45th (+10) and Sadena Parks is 50th (+21).
'I just feel like if we can get everybody to gut it out like those two, we'll be fine because we started out really well. When we hit the turn, we had a hard time and couldn't really recover,' Mulflur said.
The Huskies resume Pac-10 Championship play Saturday, teeing off at 8:46 a.m. from hole 10. Parks will start for the Huskies, followed by Dickinson, Yoon, Alvarez and Aronsson. Live scoring will be available on Golfstat.com.
