Women's Golf Begins WAC Championship Quest

San Jose State University, ranked 38th nationally in the latest GolfStat rankings, seeks its second Western Athletic Conference women’s golf championship in the last three years. The quest for the 2008 conference championship begins Monday, April 21, at the Sunnyside Country Club in Fresno, Calif.

The Spartans have seven top-five team finishes in nine tournaments and have finished ahead of several top-25 nationally-ranked teams in various events this season. San Jose State last won the WAC Championship in 2006 at the Coyote Creek Golf Course in San Jose.

Hawaii (#71), Idaho (#73), host Fresno State (#80), Boise State (#100), New Mexico State (#107) and Nevada (#116) also have their sights set on a conference championship and an automatic berth into the NCAA Regional Championships that goes to the winner.

San Jose State is the only team with three golfers ranked in the top-250 by GolfStat. Erica Moston, who has three top-10 and three more top-20 finishes this season, is ranked 83rd. Cristina Corpus, with three op-10 and two more top-20 placings, is 182nd. Katrina Delen Briones, with three top-20 finishes in her freshman season, is 242nd.

Each team will play 18 holes through Wednesday, April 23. Play begins at 8:00 a.m. each morning. San Jose State and Hawaii have the first set of tee times from 8:00 a.m. through 8:32 a.m. on April 21.

There is no admission charge to watch the WAC Championship. Free parking is available at the golf course. Live scoring will be available at www.wacsports.com.
