(BELLINGHAM, Wash. – October 9, 2018) Dixie State’s women’s golf team posted an eighth-place finish at the Western Washington Invitational, which concluded play on Tuesday at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club.

On a day that saw very little movement on the team leaderboard, the Trailblazers (325-325-650; +66) posted their second-straight team score of 33-over 325 to finish four shots back of seventh place Holy Names (322-324-646; +62) and 40 strokes behind Sonoma State (298-312-610; +26), which led wire-to-wire to take home the team trophy. Western Washington (304-314-618; +34) claimed runner-up honors, while Concordia-Oregon (313-306-619; +35) vaulted over British Columbia (310-315-625; +41) for third place.

Sophomore Kaitlynn Deeble (79-76-155) and junior Ashley Fernandez (78-83-161) paced the Trailblazers in the tourney, with Deeble carding DSU low round of the event with a second-round 3-over 76 to finish tied for 14th at plus-9 155. Fernandez posted a 10-over 83 on her second loop to place t-25th at plus-15 161, followed by sophomore Cailyn Cardall (81-84-165; +19) in t-40th, freshman Madison Moss (87-82-169; +23) in t-53rd, and freshman Cayla Clark (88-84-172; +26) in t-59th.

Dixie State concludes its 2018 fall schedule at the Fort Lewis Skyhawk Intercollegiate this Oct. 22-23, which will be played at the UNM Championship Golf Course in Albuquerque, N.M.
