Wednesday, September 14, 2011
Alan Bratton’s first tournament as head coach of the Oklahoma State women’s team was an unqualified success. The former OSU men’s assistant and player led the Cowgirls to a shocking come-from-behind victory Sept. 14 at the Dale McNamara Invitational at The Patriot Golf Club in Owasso, Okla.
Oklahoma State shot a scorching 13-under 275 in the final round to finish with a 4-over 868 total, five shots better than Arizona State (301), which had led OSU by 21 shots going into the final round. Four Cowgirls finished in the top 10.
An 8-under 64 from sophomore Jayde Panos led the way for the Cowgirls, who also got a 68 from Josephine Janson, a 71 from Kelsey Vines and a 72 from Hillary Wood. Panos finished second individually at 2-under 214, four shots behind individual medalist Giulia Molinaro of Arizona State.
Northwestern finished third at 19-over 883, followed by Iowa State (888) and host Tulsa (901).
