15th-Place Finish for CSUN at Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate

PALM DESERT, Calif. - After climbing as high as eighth-place on Saturday, the Cal State Northridge women's golf team wound up 15th after the final round of the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate Sunday at The Classic Club.

The Matadors were seeking a top-10 finish for the second straight tournament but instead carded a final round 325 to slip from 12th to 15th place. CSUN stood 12th after posting rounds of 313-315 on Saturday but more importantly were just one shot out of 10th place.

Individually, only sophomore Sharon Shin was able to post a final round score better than either of the first two rounds. 

After an opening round 79, Clariss Guce had put herself in position for a second straight top-10 finish with a second round of two under-par 70. But the junior, who was second at Cal Poly earlier in the week, finished with a round of 79 on Sunday to drop from 12th into a tie for 21st at (+12) 228.

Senior Margo Dionisio posted rounds of 78-79 on Saturday but finished at (+11) 83 on Sunday to slip into a tie for 55th at (+24) 240. Remylee Molyneux finished in a tie for 73rd at (+28) 244 after posting rounds of 77-84-83, Stephanie Bush finished tied for 83rd at (+30) 246 after rounds of 79-82-85 and Shin finished in a tie for 88th at (+32) 248 after rounds of 82-86-80.

Fresno State led from start to finish as the Bulldogs won going away with a three round score of 885. Kathy Boehm of the College of Charleston finished at even par 216 to claim individual medalist honors by one shot over Fresno State's Madchen Ly.

Cal State Northridge returns to play Oct. 22-23 as the Matadors travel to San Jose to compete at the Santa Clara Colby Classic.
