BYU women’s golf finished 11th at its first invitational of the season last week.

A strong performance from senior Kendra Dalton was a highlight for the Cougars coming out of a deeply talented field of competitors.

“This is one of the stronger fields that we will face this season,” said coach Carrie Roberts. “The Minnesota Invitational is one of the strongest of all college events.”

The teams five par scoring pleased Roberts, who noted they were able to make a lot of birdies.

Dalton and sophomore Anna Kennedy led the Cougars shooting +1 and +2, respectively, good enough to finish 26th and 31st overall.

Senior Annie Yang, junior Rose Huang and freshman Noami Soifua all placed in the top 60.

Competing individually, sophomore Aiko Leong finished at three above par, placing 36th overall.

The Cougars started the season as the defending West Coast Conference champions.

Their season continues this week as they participate in the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate in Knoxville, Tenessee.
