STANFORD, Calif. – The Oregon State women’s golf team concluded the three-day, 54-hole Stanford Intercollegiate in 14th place on Sunday.
The Beavers shot a 48-over 304-294-302--900 at the par-71, 6,130-yard Stanford Golf Course to finish 14th in the 16-team field, which featured 10 teams ranked in the top 25, including five of the nation’s top 10.
Oregon State got off to a hot start in the final round but struggled coming in and were unable to make any ground on the rest of the field.
“Today we really had a great first nine holes and were 1-under par,” Oregon State head coach Risë Alexander said. “The back nine was night and day from the front, however, and they really struggled coming in. They showed some great promise this week. They just have to take the positive from the experience and learn from the situation. We will definitely be talking about our mental discipline and focus as we prepare for the Pac-12 Preview.”
Senior Seshia Telles had four birdies and two bogeys going out to get her to 2 under through nine holes but was unable to get a bird on her back nine. She finished the tournament with a team-best 6-over 73-72-74--219 to put her in a tie for 35th place.
Junior Anica Yoo finished in a tie for 61st with a 13-over 77-74-75--226, senior Lauren Sewell was tied for 67th with a 15-over 77-75-76--228, sophomore Ashlee Pickerell was a stroke back with a 16-over 77-73-79--229 for a tie for 73rd and sophomore Chelsea Saelee finished in sole 83rd with a 23-over 80-79-77--236.
No. 2 USC edged No. 1 UCLA for the team title and the Bruins Alison Lee came back to claim medalist honors with a 7-under 206, just ahead of a trio of Trojans’ golfers.
The Beavers will compete in their final tournament of the fall season on Monday, Nov. 4 and Tuesday Nov. 5 at the Pac-12 Preview in Kona, Hawai’i.
