The Eastern Washington University women's golf team played its
second tournament of the spring season - and second in just over a
week - at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic in Chandler, Ariz., tying for
15th in the 19-team event.
The best performance by an Eagle in the two-day event that concluded on Tuesday (April 7) came courtesy of Marli Mikulecky, as she had a 238 in three rounds of play (78-79-81). She tied for 35th in the 100-player field.
Kellie Holmstedt was just three strokes behind her teammate, shooting a 241 (76-82-83) to tie for the 48th slot. Next was Kristina Gargaro, who carded a 246 (87-78-81) and finished in a 62nd-place stalemate. Kylie Ray tied for 92nd with a 261 (86-87-88), and Ines Pantoli rounded out the Eagle quintet in 100th place (315, 100-95-120).
The tournament was hosted by Ocotillo Golf Club, which will also play host to the Big Sky Championship from April 20-22. All nine league schools also participated in this week's event, and Northern Arizona ended up taking home the team crown, outlasting Fresno State by one stroke. Montana State's Kelly Gillum was named the individual winner after earning a scorecard playoff decision over NAU's Bethany Leclair.
