The season has officially wrapped up for the CSU Bakersfield women’s golf team after finishing seventh in the Western Athletic Conference Tournament in Phoenix, Arizona, April 16-18.

After day one of play, the Roadrunners were in sixth place and senior Ariel Lee was tied for 17th overall after the first round. Lee shot a 74 (+3) in her first round of play and fellow senior Tori Peers finished several spots behind Lee in the overall standings, Peers shot a 75 (+4) to finish tied for 22nd overall. Senior Julia Stewart also had good first round, shooting a 78 (+7) to finish tied 32nd place.

Sophomore Macey Mills had a strong showing during the second round of the WAC championships. She began her day tied for 29th place, posting a score of 77 (+6) after the first round. She finished in 22nd place after two rounds of play, shooting a 74 (+2).

The Roadrunners were lead by the play of Lee in the third round, she shot a 71 (E) for her final round, giving her a overall finish tied for 11th place. Lee shot 221 (+8) for the entire tournament. Sophomore Macey Mills had the second best finish for the team, finishing tied for 28th overall.

The 2017-18 season will be one to remember for the Roadrunners, breaking both team and individual records throughout the entire season.

The showing at the WAC tournament wasn’t the one the Roadrunners were hoping to get but it didn’t deter CSUB Director of Golf Meghan Thomason from the strong season the team had, “It definitely wasn’t our best this week, which is disappointing,” Thomason said to gorunners.com.

“Our season can’t be judged based on one tournament, though. We did a lot of really great things and I’m incredibly proud of all nine players, who poured their hearts into our team this year.”

For several seniors, the WAC tournament was their last tournament as a member of the CSU Bakersfield women’s golf team. They played a huge part of the Roadrunners historical record-breaking season and leave their legacy in the record books.

“I can’t say enough about our three seniors,” said Thomason said to gorunners.com.

“Everything we have accomplished these last four years has been because of the hard work they have put in day after day, week after week, year after year. Anything this program accomplishes in the future will be because of the path that was paved by Tori, Ariel, and Julia.”
