Lea Garner leads BYU women’s golf team to 6th-place finish


BYU women’s golf finished in a tie for sixth place at the NM Aggie Invitational on Wednesday. Junior Lea Garner took fourth place to lead the team in the tournament.

“I played solid today but have room to improve,” Garner said. “Overall this was a great tournament for the team. It really boosted our confidence.”

Garner was tied for first place after the second round, then dropped to fourth place in the final. She finished shooting 6-under-par.

The team tied for sixth place, with Washington State shooting 13-over-par. Idaho came in first place with 14-under-par.

“It was an all-around team effort,” said BYU coach Carrie Roberts. “We need to work on saving a couple shots each girl per round so we can have a shot at the end.”

Freshman Kendra Dalton and junior Carly Oldroyd tied for 25th place at 5-over-par.

Senior Maria Yacaman finished in a tie for 39th place, shooting 9-over-par. Freshman Sierra Harr shot 17-over-par and finished in a tie for 64th place.

Sophomore Brooklyn Anderson Hocker completed individually and finished in a tie for 44th place, shooting 11-over-par.
The next tournament for the Cougars will be Oct. 21–23 in Hawaii for the Rainbow Wahine Invitational.
