Tournament Results

ROHNERT PARK, Calif. –
 Sophomore Stephanie Sewell recorded her third consecutive top 10 finish to lead the Western Washington University women’s golf team to a 7th-place finish at the Sonoma State Fall Invitational played Monday and Tuesday at the Foxtail Golf Club North Course.

Sewell (Kent, WA/Kentridge) finished in a tie for 7th place in the 53-player field with a 36-hole score of 9-over-par 153. The sophomore carded a 1-over-par 73 in Tuesday’s final round to move up from 26th place into the top 10. Sewell was tied for 5th at last week’s WWU Invitational and tied for 6th in the Saint Martin’s Invitational.

The Vikings moved up one spot into 7th place with a final-round team score of 311, a 16-shot improvement from Monday’s first round, and the fourth-best team round on Tuesday. Arkansas Tech won the team title at 26-over-par (602) for the tournament.

Senior Jenn Paul (Bellingham, WA) tied for 29th (+16, 160) and senior Brooke Branigan (Bellingham, WA) tied for 33rd place (+17, 161).

Arkansas Tech’s Avery Struck led wire-to-wire to win individual medalist honors with a two-round total of 1-over-par 145.

The Vikings stand at 39-over-par after shooting a team score of 327 Monday. Arkansas Tech (+8, 296) and Chico State (+9, 297) hold the top two spots in the nine-team tournament leading into Tuesday’s final 18 holes.

“We played better today, but it is frustrating because this has been the story of our fall,” said head coach Bo Stephan. “We have been close, but just not there yet. There hasn't been much time to practice with all the tournaments stacked up, and when you are not playing your best, that’s tough. We'll regroup and hopefully play better in Hawaii to close out the fall schedule.”

The Vikings close out the fall schedule October 24-25 at the Dennis Rose Intercollegiate in Waikoloa, HI (Waikoloa Kings Course).
