Women’s Golf To Play A Pair Of Tournaments In Arizona
BOULDER — Due to a scheduling change, the Colorado women's golf team will compete in a pair of tournaments this week in Arizona, starting Monday, at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational in Tucson, Ariz.
The Wildcat Invite (March 8-9) is a two-day event featuring two rounds (36-holes) on the first day and the final round on the second day. The 16-team field will play at the 6,627-yard, par 72 Sewailo Golf Club in Tucson. CU will compete against several Pac-12 schools, including the host, Arizona, as well as Oregon, Oregon State and Southern California. The other teams competing are Denver, Iowa, Iowa State, Long Beach State, Northern Arizona, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Oklahoma State, Texas, New Mexico and UNLV. Live scoring can be found here.
The Buffaloes will have just a few days to rest before heading to their next competition as head coach Anne Kelly added the Clover Cup, March 12-14, at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Ariz. to replace the Bruin Wave Invitational, March 1-3, in Somis, Calif. Notre Dame is the host of the three-day tournament which will see the Buffs playing 18 holes each day.
Through the first two tournaments, junior Malak Bouraeda leads CU with a 73.67 stroke average, while Hodgkins is second (74.50). Bouraeda led CU at the Lamkin Invitational as she tied for fifth (220) and Hodgkins was the team's individual leader at the Talking Stick Invitational with her 10th-place finish (218).
Colorado's line-up for the Wildcat Invitational will be Hodgkins, Bouraeda, junior Alisha Lau, sophomore Ellie Gower and junior Kelsey Webster.
