Wildcats Finish Sixth at Hobble Creek Classic

SPRINGVILLE, Utah — The Weber State women's golf team returned to Hobble Creek Golf Course on Tuesday morning for a few holes to wrap up the Hobble Creek Fall Classic with a sixth place finish after play was suspended on Monday evening.

The Wildcats shot 302 in the tournament's opening round Monday morning, but rain and lightning delays in the afternoon final round pushed play back and the field was unable to finish the 36 holes due to darkness. After concluding the round on Tuesday morning, the Wildcats had shot 304 over the final 18 holes for a tournament total of 606.

Kaceelyn Pouttu earned her second top-20 finish of the year in as many outings, shooting 74-76 for an eight-over-par total of 150 to tie for 17th.

Hawaii earned the team title, shooting 293-290 for a total of 583. The Rainbow Wahine finished eight shots clear of second-place New Mexico State. Cal Poly finished third at 598.

Hawaii scored the top two places on the individual leaderboard, with Eimi Koga earning medalist honors after shooting 70-71 for a one-under-par 141. Koga finished two shots clear of her teammate, Raquel Ek and New Mexico State's Viviana Macias, who both shot 143.

Emily Podlesny and Xena Motes joined Pouttu inside the top-30, with Podlesny shooting 75-76 for a total of 151 to tie for 24th, and Motes shooting 77-75 to tie for 28th at 152. Haylee Chugg was another shot back at 153 to tie for 35th, while Sierra Harr shot 157 to tie for 52nd.

The Wildcats finished first among a strong group of Big Sky schools in the 16-team field. Defending conference champion Northern Arizona finished seventh, five shots back of Weber State, and the 'Cats also finished ahead of Montana State, Eastern Washington, North Dakota, Southern Utah, Montana and Idaho State.
