Women's Golf Finishes Second, Brumbaugh Third

Tucson, Ariz.-The San Jose State women's golf team set a tournament record on Saturday as the team shot a tournament-best six-under 282 in the final round of the MountainView Collegiate.  The Spartans finished second at 859, one shot behind #14 Texas Tech.

San Jose State shot its best round in nine years behind a pair of 69s from Jennifer Brumbaugh and Regan De Guzman.  Brumbaugh recorded her second under-par score of the season and ended the tournament tied for third at three-under 213.  De Guzman returned to the course on Saturday after withdrawing from the second round Friday with a left knee injury.  She shot a five-under 139 for her two-round total.

Only twice since 2000 have two Spartan players recorded scores in the 60s in the same round - 2004 Heather Farr Memorial Invitational with Carmina Calle (68) and Jenelle Gomez (69); and the 2000 NCAA West Regional at Tempe Ariz., with Rebecka Heinmert (68) and Jessica Krantz (69).

Kathleen Rojas recorded her third under-par round of the year with a two-under 70 to finish the tournament at even-par 216 and tie for sixth place, her first top-10 placing of the year.

Rachelle Reali had her best tournament of the year, finishing tied for 23rd at 221, after shooting a 77 on Saturday.

Megan Osland rounded out the Spartan scoring with a 74 and tied for 34th with a three-round total of 223.

Saturday's round was the first time the Spartans had shot under-par team scores since the 2008-09 season.  That year, the team recorded four scores under par including two en route to the MountainView Collegiate Championship with a 284 and 287.

"Everyone played well today, and it was nice to have Regan back on the course with us," said Spartan head coach John Dormann.  "Having Regan on the course gave everyone confidence to go out and do their best.  With everyone playing their best, our confidence showed on the course.

"We are encouraged by our performance at this tournament but are disappointed at losing by one stroke."

San Jose State next competes at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Maui on March 25-27.
