Cougars End Pepperdine’s 14-Year Conference Winning Streak

By Joe Watts

For the first time in 15 years, the Pepperdine women’s golf team is going home without the conference trophy. Yes, it’s true, Pepperdine women won the conference golf championship for 14 consecutive years. This year that remarkable streak came to an end, and instead, BYU went home with its first West Coast Conference championship. The Cougars shot 884 and edged Gonzaga by three shots, and Pepperdine finished in third place. There were only five teams in the women’s tournament.

Individual medalist honor was won by Ciera Min of Gonzaga with a final round of 66 that gave her a three-shot victory over four players, including two from BYU, Rose Huang and Lea Garner. Huang shot three straight 73's. Garner shot 70 and 72 and closed with a 77.

Other Cougars on the championship winning team were Kendra Dalton, Alex White, and Brooklyn Hocker.

The tournament was held at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, California.
