Oklahoma State wins inaugural Schooner Classic
Monday, October 7, 2013
After two close calls to start the season, Oklahoma State claimed the elusive team victory Monday at the Schooner Fall Classic.
Oklahoma State posted a final-round 1-under 279 at Belmar Golf Club in Norman, Okla., to overtake LSU and Arizona State. The Cowgirls won the inaugural event, hosted by the Toby Keith Foundation, with a 54-hole total of 28-over 868. They were six shots ahead of Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma State effort was led by senior Jayde Panos, who had the individual lead after Round 1 and at 4-over 214 (67-73-74), finished the event in solo seventh. Teammates Casie Cathrea and Isabella Dellert tied for 12th with 7-over 217 totals. The Cowgirls played without sophomore Julie Yang, who stepped away from the lineup for the second stage of LPGA Q-School, to be played 8-10 in Venice, Fla.
So far this season, Oklahoma State had finished third at the Dale McNamara Fall Preview and runner-up at the Windy City Invitational.
Oklahoma completed the biggest comeback of the tournament after climbing from 12th at the end of Round 1 to second at the end of Round 3. Second-round leader LSU tied for third with Arizona State at 36-over 876.
LSU junior Madelene Sagstrom won the individual medal at 4-over 206 (70-70-66) and Kentucky’s Liz Breed was runner-up, two shots back.
