STANFORD, Calif. -
The Washington State women's golf team concluded the fall portion of the 2001-02 golf schedule, Sunday at the Stanford/Pepsi Intercollegiate at the par-72, 6,154 yard Stanford Golf Course.
Freshman Kim Welch posted three top 14 efforts through the course of the fall season. The Sacramento, Calif., native captured a victory at the Lady Vandal Fall Invitational, Oct. 2., and a sixth place finish at the Ram Fall Classic, Sept. 11. In addition, Welch completed the Oregon State Shanico Golf Invitational in a tie for 14th place, Oct. 10. The win at the Lady Vandal Invite marked the first triumph by a Cougar in a tournament since Kelly Wilson achieved the feat at the Lady Lumberjack Invitational in 1998.
In addition, senior Tasha Browner became WSU's all-time leader in career top 10 finishes with nine. Browner entered the fall season sharing the record, which stood at seven, with Jill A. Johnson (1988-91) and Erin Johnsrud (1989-90). Browner staked her claim to solo possession of the record with a third place effort at the Ram Fall Classic, Sept. 11 and a fourth place finish at the Lady Vandal Classic, Oct. 2.
The Cougars set a team scoring record in their first tournament of the fall season. The team's final round score of 297 at the Ram Fall Classic, Sept. 11 set the school record for lowest single round team score. The Cougars broke the previous record of 298 set a year ago to the day at the same tournament. The record breaking final round gave the Cougars a three-round total of 898, setting the mark for the lowest three-round team score. The previous mark was 900 set at the Ram Fall Classic, Sept. 12.
