TUCSON, Ariz. -- Jennifer Brumbaugh knocked in consecutive pars on two playoff holes to secure San Jose State's second individual win in as many weeks at the Mountain View Collegiate on March 24.
Brumbaugh (Scotts Valley HS) on her final hole, the par-four sixth, drove the green in one and two-putted for her second birdie in a row forcing a playoff with Northwestern's Lauren Weaver. Both players finished regulation play at seven-under par 209.
The final round playing partners each parred the first playoff hole, but after a tee shot in the water on the second hole, Weaver bogeyed and Brumbaugh rolled in a par to win the tournament.
"My confidence was definitely in my driver," said Brumbaugh, a junior from Scotts Valley, Calif., who won for the first time with her first 54-hole college tournament score under par. "I knew I needed the birdie on my last hole and I hit a great drive to the green. Then again on the second playoff hole I hit it right down the middle."
Freshman Kathleen Rojas shot a one-under 71 in the final-round and shot 215 (-1) for the tournament finishing in a tie for 7th place.
"More players on our team are starting to show that they can step up and perform at a high level," said San Jose State head coach John Dormann. "It's a great thing for our team."
The Spartans as a team shot 293-295-299-887 (+23) on the 6,227-yard par 72 Mountain View Course, finishing in eighth place out of 15 teams. Texas Tech was even par as a team in the final round and won the tournament at 858 (-6).
Madeleine Ziegert who won the Fresno State Lexus Classic on March 12-13 finished in a tie for 55th place at 229 (+13) while Jordanne Barr shot 235 (+19). Also competing for San Jose State, Rachelle Reali who shot 76-82-81-239 (+23) and finished in 82nd.
