Women's Golf 4th At Peg Barnard; Corpus, A Career Best

Stanford, Calif.-----Cristina Corpus completed her best tournament of her college career for San Jose State University tying for third and leading the Spartans to a fourth place finish at the Peg Barnard California Collegiate women’s golf tournament.

Corpus, a sophomore from San Leandro, Calif., posted a 36-hole total of 146 on the par 71, 6,117-yard Stanford University Golf Course after a final round 74. She opened the Spartans; final regular-season tournament with a 72 and finished four shots back of medalist Karinn Dickinson of Washington who finished at even par 142.

Stanford’s Angela King was second at one-over par 143.

“This was a real good bounce-back tournament for Cristina. Her practice time at Castlewood Country Club paid off,” said San Jose State coach John Dormann about Corpus who shot a 234 at the Ping/ASU Invitational in Tempe, Ariz., that concluded on April 6.

“I relaxed, enjoyed myself and was able to play my game,” said Corpus, who now has six top-10 in 19 college tournaments. She also has a fourth and a third place finish at the last two Ladies’ Philippine Open championships while playing for San Jose State.

As a team, San Jose State moved up one spot to fourth on the final day. The Spartans’ scoring range was a tight 74 to 76 and was accomplished without the benefit of discarding a fifth player score since Katrina Delen Briones was unavailable due to back problems. Erica Moston and Kanika Minocha posted 75’s and Kimberly Punyasavatsut matched her opening-round 76. Moston finished tied for 11th place at 150.

“This was a good, solid team effort. Everybody contributed,” added the San Jose State coach.

Stanford was one of two teams with the day’s low team score, a 291, and vaulted into the team championship with a 591 total. Washington was second at 595 and Oregon State was third at 599. For the second tournament in a row, San Jose State finished ahead of at least one top-25 team since #17 California tied for fifth at 609.

San Jose State returns to action Monday, April 21, seeking its second Western Athletic Conference championship in the last three seasons. The 54-hole championship takes place at the Sunnyside Country Club in Fresno, Calif.
