Oregon women’s golf beats Oregon State in Silverado Showdown
At the end of the Silverado Showdown tournament last year, the Ducks walked away in fifth place. In state rival Oregon State University finished three strokes ahead of the Ducks.
This year, the Ducks beat the Beavers by one stroke at 889-890 to take first place overall.
“It is easy to win when your game is on and the team is firing on all cylinders, but it takes heart to win you’re not at the top of your game,” Coach Ria Scott told GoDucks.com.
Caroline Inglis led the way for the Ducks on both days of the tournament scoring 147 her first day after two rounds and 221 after three rounds.
Inglis was one stroke shy of tying for third place along with Suchaya Tangkamolprasert of Northwestern who shot a 220 on the final day. Inglis (+2) was the top golfer for the Ducks with a score of 74.
Cathleen Santoso (+5) finished second in individual scoring at 77. Santoso tied for 17th overall out of 78 total golfers with a score of 224.
Cassy Isagawa (+4) rounded out the top three for the team by scoring 76 on the day. Isagawa tied for 26th in the tournament with a Tuesday score of 224.
In individual competition, Cali Hipp (+4) finished with a solo score of 75 making her score for the day 230. Marcella Pranovia (+11) gave herself a solo score of 83 tying for 66th place at 240.
This win gives the Ducks the second championship of the spring, this is the first time the Ducks have won twice in the spring since 2000.
“Every score, every shot mattered out there – and it is great to reinforce that headed into the postseason,” Scott said.
The Ducks will be heading back to Eugene to prepare for the Pac-12 Championships in Boulder, Colo., on April 20-22.
