167

The BYU women’s golf team finished 12th in Nevada at Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Intercollegiate this week.

“I thought there were a lot of positives,” coach Carrie Roberts said. “We played really well in the beginning, some of our best golf of the year, and we put a decent round together.”

After the first round, BYU held ninth place with 16-over-par but dropped to 12th during the final round of the three-day tournament.

Fourteen teams competed in the tournament, including UVU, which placed 14th with 67-over-par. Portland took first with 3-over-par, followed by University of California-Irvine, with 8-over-par.

BYU’s top player Lea Garner tied for 22nd after holing nine birdies total in the tournament and registering 73 strokes in her final round.

Freshman Brooklyn Anderson finished in 26th place with 8-over-par, registering three birdies in her final round and five birdies total.

“I’m very proud of both (Lea and Brooklyn),” Roberts said. “This was Brooklyn’s first tournament playing in the top five, and she did a good job. Lea was solid again and did a good job.”

Other Cougars competing in the tournament were Annika A. Kahaialii, with 11-over-par for a 37th place tie; Selu Fotu, with 19-over-par for a 62nd place tie; and Carly Olroyd, with 30-over-par for a 75th place finish.

The Cougars play their final tournament of the fall season at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational in Wahiawa, Hawaii, on Oct. 29–31.
