FRESNO, Calif. – (March 6) The Seattle University women’s golf team competed in the Fresno State Classic on Monday and Tuesday and finished tied for 10th place at the Copper River Country Club.
Kimberlee Tottori was leading the Redhawks after the first round with a terrific round of 72, but due to a technical mishap, her score was disqualified for her individual score, and also didn’t count towards the team score.
“Had an unfortunate learning experience for Kimmy and me,” head coach Marc Chandonnet said. “We accidentally missed a second signature prior to turning in the scorecard.”
Tottori then shot a 71 in round two and a 75 in round three, which would have given her a top 6 finish.
It was a difficult course, but Chandonnet is still optimistic about the season.
“Overall, I’m still feeling very encouraged about this groups potential,” he said. “The golf course exploited some of our weaknesses which will provide us an opportunity to reflect and improve those areas particularly around the green with some of our shorter shots. We are looking forward to our trip to Arizona where we will be traveling 6 players for 3 consecutive events during spring break and it will give us the chance to work diligently in some nice weather on our short game in preparation for our championship experiences at the end of this year. “
The Redhawks will play three tournaments in a 10-day span, starting with the Red Rocks Invitational in Sedona, Ariz. March 23-25.
