By Eric Stephens, Director of Athletic Communications and Events at Westminster College
ROHNERT PARK, Cali.–The women's golf team scored 314 in round two, a 12 stroke improvement from the first round, but were unable to move up the leader board against a strong West Coast field. The team finished ninth on the 6016 yard Par 72 course at the Foxtail Golf Club in Rohnert Park, Cali., which played long and fast.
“I am happy with two rounds in the 70's,” Head Coach Denise Larson said. “”The Ladies played well all day, but faultered in the last three holes, dropping 11 shots to par. This was a good reminder that there is still work to be done over the winter.”
Karen Valcarce, Jobi Einerson and Cassie Campos finished one stroke behind each other respectively. Valcarce shot two rounds of 78 to finish tied 22nd. Einerson recorded her best performance this season and carded 79 and 78 to finish tied 26th. Campos shot 81 in the first round and improved her second round by four strokes to finish tied 30th.
Jesella de Jesues carded 81 in round two, an eight stroke improvement from round one, and finished 54th. Kalle Lunsford shot 88 both rounds and finished tied 59th.
Westminster was without their number three player, Kanna Crosland, who suffered an elbow fracture.
“Team Moral is high and we are committed to improving so we are ready to challenge for the RMAC Title in April,” Larson concluded.
The team will enter winter training and resume competition in the Spring.
