Huskies Look Forward To Final Fall Event After Finishing 10th At Stanford
PALO ALTO, Calif. – The Husky women's golf team shot a final round 294 on Sunday at Stanford Golf Course to finish 10th out of 18 teams at the Stanford Intercollegiate.
The Huskies were consistent, shooting a 292 on Friday and a 293 on Saturday, leading up to the final round 294. They had a three-round total of 879 (+27). Afterwards, Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur felt her team could have even scored lower.
"It was a frustrating day out there for us," she said. "We made some poor decisions that cost us several opportunities."
The Huskies were nine shots behind California, who finished ninth at +17, and were seven shots ahead of 11th-place Iowa State (+34).
Despite some missed opportunities in California, Mulflur is excited to get her troops right back into action. The Huskies wrap up fall with the Pac-12 Preview at Nanea Golf Club from Nov. 1-3 on the Big Island of Hawai'i.
"We continue to grow and are looking forward to one more event before we head to our off-season work," Mulflur said.
One team the Huskies will see in Hawai'i at the start of November is Stanford, who ran away from the field for both the team and individual victories this weekend. The Cardinal tallied a three-day total of 28-under 824.
San Jose State was second at -6 and UCLA was third (-1).
Rose Zhang took home medalist honors with a four-shot win, finishing -16 overall.
The Huskies' five golfers were all within three strokes of each other on Sunday, with Stefanie Deng leading the way with a final round 1-over 72.
Camille Boyd was the Huskies' top individual finisher, tying for 24th with a three-day total of 215 (+2). She shot a final round 73.
Deng was three shots back of Boyd and tied for 30th with a total of 218 (+5).
Jamie Hsieh shot a final round 75 and finished tied for 41st at 220 (+7), while fellow freshman Kennedy Knox tied for 59th with a three-round total of 226. Knox shot a final round 74.
