Huskies Finish Seventh at Sun Devil Winter Classic
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The University of Washington women's golf team finished seventh at the Sun Devil Winter Classic on Wednesday and saw three of their players post top 30 efforts. The Huskies recorded a 34-over 898 (307-295-296) and were led by senior Rino Sasaki who tied for 19th.
"We hung tough out there again today in the wind, which made us struggle a little bit at the finish but I was really pleased with the progress we made this week and we will continue to work hard," said head coach Mary Lou Mulflur.
Sasaki carded a 6-over 222 (80-70-72) to finish tied for 19th and closed out the event with an even-par 72 in the final round. She opened the day with six-straight pars and then balanced three birdies to three bogeys to wrap up at 72.
Freshman Stefanie Deng recorded her best showing in her first campaign with the Dawgs as she tied for 22nd at 7-over 223. After posting a 7-over 79 in her first round, Deng turned in back-to-back scorecards of even-par 72 and closed the event with a team best four birdies in the final round. Junior Martha Lewis also placed in the top 30 as she tied for 28th with a 9-over 225 (72-77-76).
Competing as an individual, sophomore Winnie Ng finished with a 12-over 228 to place tied for 34th while freshman Camille Boyd was just behind her at 14-over 230 (78-76-76) which put her in 40th place. Rounding out the UW crew was sophomore Brittany Kwon who finished 51st at 22-over 238 (78-81-79).
