Sammamish, Wash.-Megan Osland and Madeleine Ziegert each finished in the top-20 of the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational Wednesday as the San Jose State women's golf team was sixth in the 12-team tournament at the Sahalee Country Club.
Osland recorded her first collegiate top-10 finish with her eighth-place showing. She shot a 77 for her final round and finished the day with six consecutive pars.
Ziegert tied for 12th, her best finish of the year, with a 228. She shot a 76 on Wednesday and finished her last seven holes with two birdies and five pars.
Rachelle Reali shot the team's best score of the day with a 75. She played the back-nine holes one-under par with a birdie on #10 and pars for the next eight holes. Reali finished the tournament in 43rd place at 239.
Tiffany Nichols shot a 79 in her third round to finish 32nd at 234, her best finish of the year, while Jordanne Barr shot an 83 to end 56th at 247.
"Today we started pretty good and somewhere in the middle things went a little haywire," said Spartan head coach John Dormann. "I am happy that Rachelle had a good score for us and stepped up today. I am also happy for Megan and her first top-10 finish.
"Overall this was a good experience for us playing a challenging golf course in challenging conditions and against good competition. We should learn from this experience and grow from it."
San Jose State next competes at the Stanford Intercollegiate, October 14-16, at the Stanford Golf Course.
