Pebble Beach, Calif.-- The San José State women's golf team shot a 295 in the final round of the Stanford Intercollegiate hosted by Dr. Condoleezza Rice to finish in fifth place at 884 (+32) at the Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach, Calif.
The Spartans had the fourth-best team score on the day on the par-71 course. The team made 14 birdies during the round and finished the tournament with 35 birdies and 159 pars made.
Two Spartans finished in the top-20 individually. Franziska Friedrich shot a two-over 73 and finished tied for 15th at 218 at five-over par 218. She made three birdies and 11 pars during the round. Alexandra Cooper shot a three-over 74 to finish 20th at seven-over 220. She made four birdies and eight pars during the final round.

"I thought we showed great heart and grit today. It was a tough golf course under difficult conditions. Other than a few big numbers, we played well. Fifth place at this tournament is a very strong showing," said San José State head coach John Dormann.
UCLA won the team title after shooting a nine-under 275 in the final round to finish at three-under par, three shots better than host Stanford. Northwestern was third at +13, followed by California at +28.
