Women's golf finishes in second at Cal Poly match-play competition
ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. - The Northern Colorado women’s golf team had an impressive showing at the 2010 Cal Poly/Lamkin Grip Women’s Match Play Championship at the Cypress Ridge Golf Course.
Over two days, the Bears competed in three matches, going 2-1 and finishing in second place out of eight teams. In the championship round, the Cal Poly Mustangs defeated the Bears 4 & 1. The University of British Columbia finished in third.
“This was a fun event because there are not many collegiate match-play events," said Bears head coach Brandon White. "It’s a fun format for team play because you have head-to-head matches that really bring team camaraderie together."
On day one, the Bears defeated the Utah Valley Wolverines 3 & 2. They defeated the Wolverines again 3 & 2 in their second match of the tournament, earning the right to compete in the championship match.
“This was a great experience for us to play a good team like Cal Poly in the championship match," White said. "The girls played hard and never gave up and gained some valuable experience playing in pressure situations with the chance to win. It should give them some confidence going into our last two events of the season.”
The Bears will compete next in the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic on April 5 and 6 in Chandler, Ariz.
