    Best day not good enough for w-golf

    The Arizona women’s golf team definitely saved its best for last, but it wasn’t enough as the No. 9 Wildcats fell in the third and final round of the Northrop Grumman tournament in Palos Verdes, Calif.

    The Wildcats shot 13-over-par yesterday, enough to move them up four spots to take an eighth-place tie.

    “”We’re obviously all disappointed,”” said UA senior Alison Walshe. “”We didn’t play as well as we thought we would.””

    Junior Amanda Wilson led the way yesterday for the team, finishing 1-under-par-70. She ended up with her first top-20 finish, shooting an 11-over 224 to finish in 11th place. Other notables were Walshe, who shot a 2-over-par 73 to finish tied for 23rd place and senior Mary Jacobs (5 over, tie for 45th). Freshman Alejandra Llaneza tied for 32nd (17 over) and Emily Mason, a sophomore in her first tournament, finished in 75th place shooting a 17-over-par 230.

    As far as the individual scoreboard, Wake Forest’s Natalie Sheary took first place overall with a 2-over-par-213.

    No. 2 UCLA was able to come back after a rough second round and win the tournament with a 5-over-par day that put it at 24-over-par overall, seven strokes ahead of No. 5 Florida.

    The Wildcats’ next tournament is the Wildcat Invitational.

    “”Next up is our home golf course,”” Walshe said. “”We will bounce back.””
