Warrior Women’s Golf Holds Commanding Lead After First Round at Puget Sound

Randy Isbelle | LC State Sports Information Intern

LAKEWOOD, Wash. – The Lewis-Clark State Women’s Golf team jumped out to a 29-stroke advantage and the men are five strokes off the lead in third after the first round of the Logger Invite at the Oakbrook Golf Club on Saturday.

THE WOMEN

The No. 23 Warriors lapped the four-team field in the opening round with a team score of 26-over, 314. NCAA Division III Pacific is the closest competitor, 29 strokes behind.

“The women had a great comeback today,” Head Coach Zach Anderson said. “I am very proud of their resilience after a tough event last week. Still some things to clean up, but a lot better all around in some tough conditions with wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.”

Senior Kyla Currie carded five birdies including one on No. 18 and finished the day in second place. She is two-strokes behind the leader Bead Boonta of Pacific.

Sophomore Dallis Shockey bounced back from a triple-bogey on the opening hole and earned an eagle on the No. 12 par-4 and concluded play in third place after a 7-over 79. Senior Deana Caruso finished one stroke behind Shockey alone in fourth place. Freshmen Isabella Barquet and Natalia Gomez are in a three-way tie for fifth place after both shooting a round of 81.

THE MEN

LC State finds themselves in contention after an opening team round of 302. The Warriors are currently five strokes behind the co-leaders Whitworth and Pacific Lutheran.

“The men flashed their potential at times, but overall, a very mediocre day,” Anderson said. “We have got to be better mentally on the course.”

Sophomore Bryden Brown sat in a tie for the lead before bogies on Nos. 17 and 18. He concluded the opening round in a tie for third place with a 3-over, 74. Junior Alex Navarro recorded three birdies to tie his teammate with a 74.

Freshman Luke West was unable to shoot a hole under par, but played cleanly enough to finish with a round of 76 in a tie for 13th. Fellow first-year Hunter Milsap snuck into the top-20 with a round of 77.

“Work to be done tomorrow if we want to bring home any sort of hardware,” Anderson added.

The Warriors conclude action with round two tomorrow.
