KANE’OHE, HAWAI’I – Although they had traveled to the warm climate of Hawai’i, Seattle U women’s golf had no time to relax as they competed in the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational, their second tournament of the spring season, at the par-72 Kane’ohe Klipper Golf Course in Kane’ohe, Hawai’i. The Redhawks finished in 11th place at the end of the two-day tournament, which finished on Wednesday. Texas A&M’s Courtney Dow took first place overall among the competitors, while no. 2 Texas and Southern Methodist shared the team championship.
Sophomore Kimberlee Tottori tied for 19th place overall, posting two rounds of 77 before finishing strong with a round of 73 to lead Seattle U. Classmate Nicole Foster had the biggest bounce-back of the roster – after shooting 86 and 78 on Tuesday, she had an incredible one-under 71 on Wednesday morning to finish in second place for the Redhawks. Junior Krystal Hu (78-78-80) and sophomores Keisha Lugito (80-81-78) and Vendela From (78-78-85) fleshed out the team roster.
Three Redhawk women competed as individuals. Junior Linette Chua (76-81-80) started out strong, while senior Yen Ting Wong (78-79-84) followed close behind and sophomore Anne Transier (85-82-87) gained more competitive experience in her first outing of the spring.
For now, Seattle U will have a week and a half to practice before heading to Sedona, Ariz., for the Red Rocks Invitational, lasting from March 23-24.
