Wildcat’s JV golf team finishes tournament in sixth place

The UA women’s golf junior varsity squad carded a final round 300 to wrap up a three-round 899, 35-over-par at Price’s Give ‘Em Five Intercollegiate in Las Cruces, N.M.

The Wildcats ended day three in the same place they started — sixth. The Wildcats were only four strokes behind third at the end of day two, but a final-round 300 kept them at a standstill.

Sophomore Nikki Koller was a bright spot for the ‘Cats, finishing the tournament tied for sixth place — her highest finish in her brief Wildcat career. She carded a final-round 72 and a three-round total of 219, 3-over-par.

Freshman Kyndall Ardoin tied for 14th, firing a 223, 7-over-par in her second career collegiate event. Fellow freshman Marie Tschida competed in her first event as a Wildcat, but it was not a memorable one. The German native placed 64th and ended the tournament at 234, 18-over-par.

Senior Emily Mason finished in 32nd, firing a 226, 10-over-par. Sophomore Ashley Malaska struggled to an 81st place finish with a total of 240, 24-over-par.

The first-place finish went to the University of Idaho by way of an 871, 7-over-par. Individual honors went to San Diego State’s Christine Wong, who destroyed the field with a 206, 10-under-par.
