Eagles Back on the Links for WSU Cougar Cup
Eastern’s lineup in Pullman will include all three freshmen, as well as one individual competitor
For the fourth year in a row, the Eastern Washington University women’s golf team will head down to the Palouse for the WSU Cougar Cup. This familiar event held at the Palouse Ridge Golf Course in Pullman, Wash., will take place Sept. 24-25, with an 8 a.m. shotgun start both days.
The Eagles will play 36 holes on Monday, and a final 18 on Tuesday. The Palouse Ridge course will play at par 73, 6,200 yards.
This year’s tournament will feature a 14-team field, including five Big Sky Conference schools. In addition to EWU, Montana, Montana State, Portland State and Sac State will all be playing next week in Pullman.
Several California schools will make the trip to the Palouse as well, including UC Irvine, Cal State Fullerton, Santa Clara and Cal. BYU, Nevada, Idaho, Gonzaga, and host-Washington State round out the field.
Eastern will enjoy a complete lineup at this event, with six of its seven members making the trip. Senior Jayme Carbon will play in the No. 1 spot, with freshman Marissa Borja at No. 2 and junior Sara Callagy at No. 3.
The final two scoring spots will be filled by two more rookies, both with local ties. Maddie Dodge, a native of Post Falls, Idaho, will play in the No. 4 spot, while Taylor Anderson will suit up for her first collegiate event at No. 5. As a product of Moscow, Idaho, Anderson probably has more experience on this course than anyone on the Eagle roster.
Sophomore Caitilin Rice will also compete in the Cougar Cup as an individual.
