    Women’s golf takes 7th at Stanford Intercollegiate

    The Stanford Fall Intercollegiate came to a close yesterday with the No. 8 Arizona women’s golf team suffering its worst finish of the season.

    After an up-and-down tournament, the Wildcats placed seventh with a season-high score of 45-over 897.

    “”We didn’t play that great,”” said UA head coach Shelly Haywood. “”We had some good play from a couple of our players, but overall it was a little bit disappointing because of the way we played here last year.””

    Arizona was tied for fourth after the first day of play Friday, shooting 12-over 296 in round one. But on day two, the squad shot 22-over 306 and fell to seventh place.

    “”The conditions were really tough,”” Haywood said. “”It was really windy. No teams had good scores (in the round).””

    Senior Alison Walshe, who was as low as 21st place in the first round, finished in eighth place at 4-over 217 with an even-par final round.

    “”I’m pleased,”” Walshe said, “”but I didn’t do as well as I would’ve liked.””

    Walshe has finished in the top 10 in all four tournaments this season.

    “”I’m happy about that,”” she said. “”The hard work is paying off.””

    Freshman Alejandra Llaneza placed 16th, the best finish of her young collegiate career.

    Llaneza was in 11th place after day one, but the following two days were not as good to her. A 2-over 73 final round brought her final score to 7-over 220.

    “”I’m really proud of Alejandra,”” Haywood said.

    The Wildcats will have one more shot this calendar year to earn their first victory of the season at the Las Vegas Intercollegiate Showdown beginning Oct. 29.

    “”We have to be more consistent,”” Haywood said. “”Mary (Jacobs) came around this tournament and Adriana (Zwanck) has played well all fall. We have to keep doing what we’ve been doing.””
