Women's Golf Earns Second Place Finish At Heather Farr
Oct. 7, 2003
BROOMFIELD, Colo. - San Diego State women's golf team earned a second place finish at the Colorado/Heather Farr Memorial Invitational after shooting 298-299 for a 36-hole total of 597. The Aztecs were edged by Portland State, who finished at 593 as they shot a final round 290, the best round of the tournament. SDSU entered Tuesday's second round in first place with a two-stroke lead over Denver. The Aztecs were led by freshman Jenna Wilson who fired a four-under 68 on Tuesday to finish the tournament in second place at one-over 145.
"I am very happy with the way we played," said head coach Felicia Brown. "Breaking 300 both days is a good start. But right now we are just prepping ourselves to make a run at the end of the season. We want to peak at the NCAA Regionals in the spring, and we are definately moving in the right direction."
Wilson recorded six birdies in her career round. Jenna is the first Aztec to break 70 since Joanne Clingan shot a 69 at the Heather Farr in the fall of 2000. Wilson opened the tournament with a round of five-over 77 to finish at 145, which ties for the second best 36-hole score in SDSU history.
After shooting an even-par 72 yesterday, Heather MacRae posted a four-over 76, while Sandy Kim shot 77 (+5). MacRae finished tied for sixth at four-over for the tournament, and Kim placed 11th. Shayna Miyajima and Megan Mulhaupt both shot 78 (+6) to finish the final round scoring for SDSU.
SDSU entered the tournament ranked No. 51 in the country according to Golfweek. The Aztecs are now looking foward to hosting the Lady Aztec Invitational on Oct. 20-21 in Chula Vista.
