Oct. 19, 2009
SANTA ROSA, Calif. - Western Washington University is third, seven shots behind the leader, heading into Tuesday's final round at the Sonoma State University Women's Golf Invitational Tournament being played at the Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club.
The Vikings shot 318 on Monday. Cal State Monterey Bay leads at 311, with Academy of Art second at 316. Host Sonoma State and Grand Canyon are tied for fourth at 321.
"We're still right there, but I think everyone was a little disappointed because we threw a few shots away at the end," said Western coach Bo Stephan.
"We just need to be a little sharper tomorrow. This is definitely a course that you can score on."
Western's Katie Sharpe (Jr., Bellingham), a transfer from Santa Clara, shot a 5-over par 77 and is tied for sixth in medalist play, just three shots off the lead.
Sonoma State's Brittany Carrera is the medalist leader at 2-over 74. One shot back is Cicilia Chudivan from Cal State Monterey Bay, and three players are tied for third, two shots behind.
