March 4, 2005
BOERNE, Tex. - The Western Washington University women's golf team struggled on the first day and is ninth among 16 teams heading into Tuesday's final round at the St. Mary's University Lady Rattlers Classic being played at the Tapatio Springs Golf and Country Club.
"We were just unable to stay away from the big numbers in each round individually," said Western coach Dean Russell, whose squad is ranked No.13 nationally in the latest Golfstat report. "We just made a few simple mistakes on some holes that we're going to have to re-strategize for tomorrow."
The Vikings shot 341 on Monday. Texas Christian holds a two-shot lead over Tarleton State, 319 to 321, with Chico State third (328), host St. Mary's fourth (329) and Central Oklahoma fifth (331).
Catherine Kim (Fr., Bellevue/Skyline) led Western with a 10-over par 82, which ties her for 17th place in medalist play.
"I was very pleased with Catherine's play," Russell said. "For a freshman, she is playing with a lot of poise."
Completing the Vikings' scores were Katie Bender (So., Tacoma/Bellarmine Prep) 85 (tie 28th), Katja Trygg (Jr., Bainbridge Island) 86 (tie 30th), Kate Menlove (Sr., Bellevue/Interlake) 88 (tie 39th) and Candice Wagner (Milton/Fife) 91 (tie 54th).
Texas Christian's Carrie Morris tops the medalist standings at 2-over 74, two strokes better than Meredith Easley from West Texas A&M.
