Most recently, the Aztecs competed at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Sammamish, Wash., from Oct. 8-10, and finished in 11th place.
At the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invite, Henrikson turned in SDSU's top performance over 54 holes, shooting an 11-over 227 to finish in a tie for 13th place. Henrikson also carded the low round of the tournament for the Aztecs as she fired a 1-over 73 during second-round action. Wong, meanwhile, finished tied for 34th place, after turning in a 19-over 235.
