French Leads Beavers On Day One At Wildcat Invitational

Women's Golf TBD

Women's Golf Concludes Season At Pac-10 Championships

April 19, 2011

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Oregon State women's golf team finished ninth at the Pac-10 Championships with a final round of 27-over 315 on Tuesday at the par-72, 6,230-yard ASU Karsten Golf Course.

The Beavers concluded the 2011 conference championship with a 64-over 309-304-315--928. USC won the title with an even-par 282-291-291--864 to finish ahead of Arizona and UCLA. Tiffany Lua of UCLA and Sophia Popov tied for medalist honors with a 6-under 210.

"I was disappointed in our performance today," Oregon State head coach Risë Alexander said. "We need to continue to improve on our mental toughness. We started well today and finished very poorly with so many inappropriate decisions. What we need to do now is focus on what we can learn for the future and how we can make better choices under pressure. The only way to do that is for the players to continue to prepare over the summer on their own."

Freshman Seshia Telles continued her strong play with a 4-over 76 on Tuesday to finish tied for 22nd overall with a 9-over 76-73-76--225, while junior Whitney French fired her best round of the tournament with a 3-over 75 and finished tied for 37th with a 17-over 78-80-75--233.

Freshman Lauren Sewell finished tied for 42nd with a 19-over 75-76-84--235, sophomore Chelsey Lind was at 22-over 80-75-83--238 to finish in a tie for 44th and sophomore Rachael Fischer was 49th with a 34-over 85-84-81--250.

"The team definitely learned a lot this year and they are a very young team," Alexander added. "But we need to learn this and move on. Now that we have 10 players next year instead of seven, this will add so much more depth and talent so the future is bright for us."
