SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Washington women’s golf team earned a team win at the abbreviated Causeway Invitational, which was cut down to just 18 holes due to poor weather at Del Paso Country Club.
Nearly halfway through the second round Tuesday, the tournament was suspended with the Huskies six strokes ahead of second-place California. However, since the second round was not completed, the final standings were based on the final first-round totals, where UW posted the low team score with a 4-over 292.
Three Huskies finished in the top-10 on the individual leaderboard. Camille Boyd tied for second place with first-round total of 1-under 71, one stroke behind the individual medalist, Abigail Leighton of UC Davis (2-under 70).
Husky Kennedy Knox was one more stroke back, tied for fifth with an even-par round of 72, while UW’s Stefanie Deng was one of five players tied for eighth place with a 1-over 73.
Additionally, UW’s Brittany Kwon recorded a 76 in the first round, while senior Winnie Ng carded an 80.
“The good news was that we were playing better than other teams today as well,” said Husky head coach Mary Lou Mulflur. “I’m super proud of their grit and toughness through some big-time adversity.”
Originally, the tournament called for 36 holes on Monday and 18 more on Tuesday. But Monday’s play was delayed multiple times and teams were only two or three holes into their second rounds before darkness fell.
Tuesday morning, hoping to complete the second round, the teams returned to the course. UW’s five golfers had call completed seven or eight holes when play was halted again. The Huskies were just 1-over as a team for the day when the tournament came to an end, increasing their team lead over the end of round one.
Next Monday and Tuesday, the Huskies will return to action at the Juli Inkster Invitational at the Meadow Club in Fairfax, Calif.
