SDSU Opens Spring Campaign in Riverside
Aztec Line-Up For This Week
Senior Heather MacRae (Dunblane, Scotland) led all Aztecs for the fall with a 75.46 stroke average. Redshirt freshman Megan McLeod (Fallbrook, Calif.) didn't finish far behind MacRae, with a 76.38 average, while Wilson and Kamimura also finished in the top five among SDSU players with averages of 77.50 and 78.27.
A look back at Fall `05
In the La Quinta Shootout, the team title wasn't the only first-place finish for the Aztecs. Megan McLeod also won the individual crown as well. McLeod dominated the tournament, as she led all golfers on the first day of action and was the daily leader after two rounds of play. McLeod wasn't alone in posting low scores during fall competition.
MacRae had three, top-10 finishes this fall and MacRae was also the top golfer for SDSU in three tournaments. The leader for the Aztecs came into this fall with some momentum. This past summer, MacRae won the Ladies' British Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship in Narin, England.
In the Lady Aztec, junior Jamie Oliver (Los Alamitos, Calif.) finished with the third-best Aztec score, while finishing 13th overall. It was one of only two fall tournaments that she competed in. This spring, Oliver is looking to have a repeat performance from her spring campaign a year ago.
Wilson and Kamimura got their tenure with the Aztecs off on the right foot, as they both finished third and fourth respectively overall for SDSU in the fall in stroke average. Wilson and Kamimura are two Aztecs Brown was pleased to see play so well in the fall. There's no doubt that Brown hopes for a repeat performance in the spring.
Freshmen Making an Impact
SDSU ended the fall ranked 73rd by Golfstat and 85th by Golfweek. The Aztecs were 26th out of 45 teams in the west region according to Golfweek/Sagarin.
