MANSFIELD, Texas - Western Washington University women's golfer Kristen Hansen had a rough final round and tied for 36th at the NCAA Division II West Super Regional that ended Wednesday at the Walnut Creek Country Club.
Hansen, a sophomore from Spokane (graduate of Mead High School), shot 90 for a 54-hole total of 253 after rounds of 82 and 81, respectively, the first two days.
"She had a really, really rough start today," said WWU head coach Bo Stephan. "I was really proud of her for hanging in there and for the outstanding season she had."
Hansen was among 48 golfers competing in the tournament. The top three teams and the top three individuals not with an advancing team qualified for the NCAA Division II National Championships on May 14-17 at Conover, N.C.
Linda Brown (74) from Cal State East Bay and Isabell Jimenez Perea (71) from Tarleton State tied for medalist honors at 224. Alyssa Smith (79) from St. Edward's, who began the day in first place, finished third, three strokes behind, at 227.
Tarleton State, which began the final round trailing by six strokes, won the team title with a three-day total of 919 with a tourney-best round of 296. St. Edward's, which led the first two days, placed second at 936 (319) and host Dallas Baptist was third at 947 (308).
Hansen was the 2014 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year, helping the Vikings to their third straight conference title. She led the GNAC with a 78.6 scoring average, finishing among the top 10 in six of nine tournaments.
