Holmstedt leads way for Eastern Washington, places in top 25 of 80-player field
The Eastern Washington University women's golf team wrapped up its second tournament of the 2009-10 season with a 13th-place finish at the Inland Cup. The three-round tournament ran from Monday-Wednesday (Sept. 21-23) and was hosted by Palouse Ridge in Pullman, Wash.
Leading the way for the Eagles was Kellie Holmstedt, who finished 23rd with a 236 (79-77-80). She was also Eastern's best golfer at the season-opening Bulldog/Eagle Challenge, tying for 32nd at that event, also with a 236 (78-82-76).
Next for Eastern this week was Kylie Ray, who finished in a 63rd-place stalemate with a 251 (86-83-82). Morgan Lee was 67th after carding a 253 (81-90-82). Dana Stapleton tied for the 69th slot with a 256 (87-86-83), and Neddy Martinez placed 79th after recording a 274 (92-91-91).
As a team, the Eagles shot a 996 (333-336-327).
Taking the team crown was Idaho (903), while the Big Sky Conference was represented by Sacramento State (third, 918), Montana (seventh, 936), Portland State (ninth, 963) and Weber State (11th, 991). Idaho player Kayla Mortellaro was the individual champion with a 219.
The Eagles will get back to the links in less than two weeks, playing in the Heather Farr/CU Memorial in Erie, Colo., from Oct. 5-6. Colorado will play host to the event.
