Much like in round one, the Seattle University women's golf team saw consistent scores again in Sunday's final round of the Red Rocks Invitational at Oakcreek Country Club in Sedona, Ariz., as the Redhawks finished 12th out of 21 teams.
Only five strokes separated SU's highest and lowest scores on the day. Lori Pearson (Seattle, Wash.) led the way with a 5-over-par 77 on day two and finished the tournament with a total of 155 strokes, 11 shots above par. She tied for 26th overall in the tournament but carded the third-most pars of all 126 players with 25 in two rounds.
One stroke behind Pearson, Clare Sorensen (Roseville, Calif.) finished the tournament with 156 strokes (+12) and tied for 31st after firing a 7-over-par 79 Sunday. Two other Redhawks also shot 79 (+7) Sunday, as Amanda Beyke (Federal Way, Wash.) shot her second round of 79 of the tournament to end in a tie for 42nd with a score of 158 (+14). Meanwhile, Nicole Gaddie (Salt Lake City, Utah) improved her first-round score by three strokes, carding a 79 to end with 161 strokes (+17) and a share of 50th place for the tournament.
Shannon Quinn (Shoreline, Wash.) also improved on her first-round score, cutting one stroke en route to a final-round 82 (+10). Quinn ended up tied for 76th after taking 165 strokes (+21) over two rounds.
As a team, the Redhawks claimed 12th place in the 21-team tournament with a two-day total of 630 strokes, 54 strokes above par. Toledo won the tournament with a team score of 29-over-par 605, while CSU-Northridge's Clariss Guce took medalist honors after shooting 2-over-par 146 for the tournament.
Seattle U's next tournament sends the squad to Kane'ohe, Hawaii, for the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational at the Kane'hoe Klipper Golf Course. That tournament will run Tuesday, March 12 through Wednesday, March 13.
