The Lady Cardinal squad sailed home with an 11-stroke lead over the 2nd-place Washington Huskies, 878 to 889, largely on the strength of a sterling performance by last month’s PAC-12 Player of the Month, freshman Mariah Stackhouse, of Riverdale, GA. Stackhouse carded three rounds under par, 70-70-71 – 212, to take individual honors, and was the only player in the tourney to put up more than one under-par round. Stanford’s Danielle Frasier, a junior from Encinitas, CA, also placed in the Top 10 in the individual results, posting 73-71-78 – 222 to tie for ninth.
The second-place Washington Huskies also had two players in the Top 10; Charlotte Thomas, a freshman from Surrey, England, was T-5 at 221, Husky sophomore SooBin Kim, of DongHae, South Korea, finished T-9.
Northern California teams dominated the top five places on the leaderboard; besides Stanford in the number 1 position, the Cal Bears squad tied for 3rd place with the NC State Wolfpack with a final score of 897, and the UC Davis Lady Aggies rounded out the Top 5 in solo fifth place with a score of 903.
Regan De Guzman, a freshman on the San José State University squad who is from Quezon City in the Phillipines, brought home 2nd-place individual honors with rounds of 74-72-72 – 218; the host team placed 9th in the 14-team tournament with a score of 920, one stroke behind Fresno State.
