UCLA hangs on to win Stanford Intercollegiate
Monday, October 17, 2011
STANFORD, Calif. – UCLA showed once again why it is the top-ranked team in women’s golf, winning the Stanford Intercollegiate on Oct. 16 by three strokes over Vanderbilt.
The Bruins, who last month won their season-opening Mason Rudolph Fall Preview, shot 10-under 842 at Stanford Golf Course. UCLA returned the same five players from the Preview, which left seniors Stephanie Kono and Brianna Do competing as individuals. Kono paced the Bruins, finishing second at 11-under 202, even though her score didn't count for the team. Four of the players on the UCLA team finished inside the top 25.
UCLA is on a four-tournament winning streak dating back to last season after winning the Central Regional and NCAA Championship.
Washington was third at 5-under 847, while Oregon finished another shot back at 4 under, a new school record for the Ducks. It's the first time Oregon has broken par in a three-round event. Oklahoma State, undefeated at the start of the week, was fifth.
Washington’s SooBin Kim won the individual title, shooting 13-under 200 (66-68-66) to beat Kono by two strokes. Oregon freshman Cassy Isagawa was third.
