Leander Ties For Fifth, Women's Golf Finishes Fourth At Peg Barnard Invitational

Feb. 12, 2017

Stanford, Calif.— Spartan women’s golfer My Leander recorded her third top-five finish of the season on Sunday as she finished the Peg Barnard Invitational tied for fifth at 144. San José State finished fourth at 594 after shooting a 300 during the final round at the Stanford Golf Course.

Leander shot a two-over 73 in round two Sunday to go with her even-par 71 in the first round on Saturday. She tied at two-over with Esther Lee of Colorado. For her final round, Leander made one birdie (#10, par 4), 14 pars and three bogeys. For the tournament, she made 26 pars over the 36 holes and four birdies.

Elizabeth Schultz had her second top-20 finish of the year as she tied for 18th at seven-over 149. She made two birdies and 11 pars during her round on Sunday.

Alexandra Cooper shot another 75 in the final round and finished tied for 24th at eight-over 150, while Abegail Arevalo tied for 20th at nine-over 151, after shooting a 76 on Sunday.  Cooper made three birdies during the final round, while Arevalo had one birdie and 11 pars. Franziska Friedrich rounded out the scoring with a 79 to tie for 53rd at 159, and had 11 pars during her round.

Only one team moved in the standings on Sunday, as the top-five teams remained the same. The Spartans shot a 300 en route to a 594 and fourth-place finish. Host Stanford won the tournament by 10 shots over Oregon. The Ducks were six shots better that Colorado, and the Buffaloes were seven shots better than the Spartans. SJSU made just seven birdies during the final round.



“It was a bit of struggle today for us,” said Spartan head coach John Dormann. “We were just missing a lot of the fairways and ending up the rough which made scoring difficult. Hopefully, we got the rust off at this weekend and are getting better for our next tournament.”

The Spartans next compete at The Gold Rush February 27 and 28, hosted by Long Beach State at the Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach, Calif.
