Mary Lou Baker Open Champ gets First Collegiate Win at Coeur d’Alene
By Josh Carter
Allysha Mae Mateo captured medalist honors, winning the Coeur d’Alene Collegiate Tuesday, leading BYU women’s golf to a second-place finish overall.
“I am incredibly proud of Allysha,” BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. “Her round today was solid to get her first win. I’m also proud of how we played the last two rounds. It was a really solid round today in the wind.”
The Cougars shot a combined (+20) 872 through three rounds of play to claim second place. Their second-round (+2) 286 and third-round (+3) 287 proved to be the lowest team scores in each of the final two rounds. Tournament host and West Coast Conference foe Gonzaga held off BYU’s late push, finishing four strokes ahead of the Cougars.
Mateo fired a team-low 3-under 68 in Tuesday’s final round after shooting rounds of 70 and 74 Monday to earn the first tournament win of her BYU career. The sophomore finished three strokes ahead of Nevada’s Katy Rutherford, who placed second.
Three other Cougars recorded top-20 finishes at Coeur d’Alene. Annick Haczkiewicz finished tied for 10th at (+1) after carding back-to-back 72’s in the second and third rounds, followed by Naomi Soifua and Kerstin Fotu, who both tied for 15th.
