Tran Tied For Eighth After One Round
FAIRFAX – The California women’s golf team began the Julie Inkster at Meadow Club Invitational on Monday, playing through difficult weather conditions for the second straight week. After over an hour-long delay, the Bears finished the first round with the tenth-best team score of 11-over 299. With the second round currently in progress, Cal has moved into a tie for eighth.
It was the Bears’ second consecutive Monday that was shortened due to rainy conditions. Competing as an individual, Kristine Tran got out to a good start, carding a first-round even-72 to tie for eighth overall. Just one stroke behind her in a tie for 16th was fellow senior Tzu-Yi Chang.
Returning to Cal’s top-five lineup following a second-place finish at last week’s Causeway Invitational, freshman Adora Liu closed the opening round tied for 27th alongside junior Cristina Ochoa with a 3-over 75. Junior Mika Jin shot a 4-over 76 and senior Jasmine Lew carded a 5-over 77 to round out the Bears’ main lineup.
Freshman Kaylyn Noh and graduate student Annika Borrelli joined Tran as Cal’s individual competitors. Borrelli finished the opening round one stroke behind Noh, who tied for 42nd at 4-over 76.
Tomorrow, the Bears will look to inch further up the 13-team field as they close out the second round. All teams are set to tee off at 8:30 a.m.
