Maricopa, Ariz. – The Eastern Washington women's golf team finished ahead of three Big Sky foes and tied with a fourth at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic, held at the Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club from Monday, Apr. 7, to Tuesday, Apr. 8.
The Eagles shot a +97 as a team to finish tied for fifteenth in a field of 20 schools.
"This was a course that needed accuracy with our shots into the greens and we struggled with hitting greens," head coach Brenda Howe said. "We were reminded that every shot matters and we cannot abandon our edge at any time. I'm confident we will put this behind us as we prepare for the Big Sky Championships."
EWU was in 19th after the opening round but improved its team score over the next two rounds to shoot a 961 (323-320-318).
New Mexico State claimed first place, shooting +23 while Santa Clara and Tulsa rounded out the top three. Montana recorded the highest finish among Big Sky schools, tying BYU for sixth place. Sacramento State finished eighth while Portland State came in 10th.
The Eagles will have two weeks to prepare for the Big Sky Championships, which kick off on Sunday, Apr. 20, at the Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler, Ariz.
