The Seattle University women’s golf team wrapped up their first tournament of the 2012-13 season Tuesday, taking third place after a tough final round at the Rose City Collegiate at Langdon Farms Golf Club in Aurora, Ore.
Two Redhawks tied for third place, with Monica Keo (Oahu, Hawaii) and Clare Sorensen (Roseville, Calif.) both taking 224 strokes (+8) over the three rounds. Keo, who carded the second-most birdies throughout the tournament with nine, shot a 4-over-par 76 in Tuesday’s final round, while Sorensen shot 81, nine strokes over par, to finish out her first collegiate tournament.
Lori Pearson (Seattle, Wash.) finished in a tie for 24th after shooting 12-over-par 84 during the final round. She ended the tournament with a cumulative score of 234, 18 strokes above par.
Nicole Gaddie (Salt Lake City, Utah) claimed sole possession of 38th after taking 239 (+23) strokes over the three rounds. She shot a 12-over 83 to end the tournament, and Juhee Lee (Manhattan, Ore.) rounded up the Redhawks’ scoring lineup with a three-round total of 241 strokes, 25 shots over par. Lee finished her first collegiate tournament in 44th place after carding a 12-over-par 83 as well Tuesday.
Christine Cook (Yakima, Wash.) also played in the tournament, firing a 9-over-par 81 Tuesday to finish the tournament in a tie for 51st at 244 strokes (+28). Cook played as an individual, however, and her score did not count towards team’s score.
Overall, the Redhawks combined for a team score of 917, 53 strokes above par. Cal State Fullerton won the team title with a score of 48-over-par 912, five strokes ahead of Seattle U, and A Ram Choi of host Portland State took medalist honors with a three-day total of 218, two shots above par.
The Seattle U women’s golf team will next play at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational at Sahalee Country Club in Redmond, Wash., Monday Oct. 8 through Wednesday, Oct. 10. Monday’s tee times will begin at 9:00 a.m.
