BELLINGHAM, Wash. - The Western Washington University women's golf team closed out the fall portion of its schedule finishing in 6th place at the 2017 WWU Invitational played Monday and Tuesday at Bellingham Golf & Country Club.
The Vikings had a 15-stoke improvement from Monday's first round, turning in a 21-over-par 313 on Tuesday to move up two spots on the leaderboard and finish the tournament at 57-over-par (641). WWU started play Tuesday in 8th place in the 13-team tournament, but had a strong final round to complete the fall season.
Senior Jenn Paul (Bellingham, WA) turned in her best performance of the season, carding a 1-over-par 74 to tie for 16th place in the 72-player field. Paul recorded 4 birdies and 9 pars in her final round to move up from 35th place to open the round.
"We had one of our best rounds of the fall, and that is a positive way to head into the offseason," said head coach Bo Stephan. "I thought Jenn Paul played really well and proud of how she battled out there. She was smart on the course and had a tremendous round to finish at 1-over-par."
Junior Stephanie Sewell (Kent, WA/Kentridge) turned in another top 25 performance tying for 23rd place at 13-over-par (159), shooting a 4-over-par 77 in the final round.
Hannah Drake (T32nd, +16) and Annie Leete (T37th, +18) rounded out the Western players to finish in the top 40 of the tournament.
California Baptist recorded a five-stroke victory over the University of British Columbia to earn team medalist honors, finishing the 36-hole tournament at 14-over-par 598. Yu Ling Lee shot a 3-under-par 70 in the final round to finish at -1 for the tournament (145) to take home individual medalist honors.
The spring season is scheduled to open Feb. 26-27, 2018 at the Lancer Shootout hosted by California Baptist at Goose Creek Golf Club in Mira Loma, Calif.
