Huskies In 7th After Day One At The Show At Spanish Trail
LAS VEGAS – After 36 holes on day one of The Show at Spanish Trail, the Washington women's golf team is tied for seventh-place, at 10-over par for the tournament.
Host UNLV leads the 16-team field at Spanish Trail Country Club. The final round of the two-day tournament will be played Tuesday morning. Washington shot a 291 in the first round and a 295 in the second.
"It was a frustrating day for us and certainly not what we anticipated," said head coach Mary Lou Mulflur. "We had too many unforced errors that lead to some tough outcomes. I'm very proud of the resilience, though as they fought until the bitter end. We will regroup and hope to play better tomorrow."
The Huskies finished the first round 3-over, led by sophomore Stefanie Deng, who shot a 1-under 71, thanks to four birdies, a bogey and a double, good for a tie for 12th at that point. Freshman teammate Kennedy Knox made even par in the opening round, leaving her in a tie for 14th after 18 holes.
After a brief break, the Huskies were back at it for round two of the three-round tournament. In the latter round, the UW's top golfer was sophomore Camille Boyd. She carded three birdies and twobogies to finish with an 1-under 71. Added to the 73 she scored in the first round, she finished the day even and tied for 18th place, tops on the team.
Deng shot a 3-over 75 for her second round, leaving her 2-over for the tournament, tied for 25th place.
Brittany Kwon made a 3-over 75 in her first round and a 2-over 74 in the second, placing her in a tie for 44th overall, at 5-over. Jamie Hsieh shot 5-over in the first round and 4-over in the second. She's tied for 69th at 9-over. Knox (+10 for the tournament) is tied for 76th as the teams head to Tuesday's final round.
