Minnesota Wins Entrada Classic; Cougars Finish Second
Minnesota edged BYU by eight shots to win the Entrada Classic Tuesday at Entrada Country Club in St. George.
“Second place is a great finish and we beat a couple of ranked teams,” BYU women’s golf coach Carrie Roberts said. “They battled and pulled through in the final round.”
Wisconsin and California, two nationally ranked teams, played in the tournament.
Minnesota’s Anna Laorr finished in first place individually and BYU”s Lea Garner finished in third plaee with three birdies on her last five holes.
BYU’s Alexandra White trailed Garner by two strokes for a fourth place finish at 12-over with two birdies and an eagle in the seventh hole.
“Lea and Alex were great,” Roberts said. “They were awesome. We needed them to have a great round and that’s exactly what they did for us. We’re going to see if our four and five players can do better, because we just need one more scorer.”
Maria Yacaman tied in 25th place with a single birdie in the final round to go 24-over-par in the 54-hole tournament. Freshman Annie Yang tied in 41st place at 29-over-par with a birdie to start the final round, while Selu Fotu finished in 81st place at 53-over-par and a single birdie.
