One year after setting course records, sophomore Mariah Stackhouse and the Stanford Cardinal return to the Stanford (Calif.) Golf Course to host the Peg Barnard Invitational Saturday and Sunday.
Stackhouse shot a 10-under 61 in her final round last season as she took medalist honors and led Stanford to the win.
This year, the Cardinal will host 13 additional teams, including: California, Colorado, Denver, Fresno State, Long Beach State, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Francisco, San Jose State, UC Davis, UC Irvine and UNLV.
