Freshman Golfer Bezdicek Posts 69, Leads Team at Rose City Collegiate

PORTLAND, Ore. – Freshman Savana Bezdicek carded a three-under par 69 in the first round and enters the final day tied for third overall in the team standings after the first day of action at the Rose City Collegiate. Bezdicek led the team to a tie for third after 36 holes.

"It was a very good day," said Head Coach Brad Bedortha. "They competed hard and I was very happy with it today. There are some pretty good teams in the field that are rated ahead of us. We are competing with them and we would like to beat a few of them tomorrow."

Bezdicek's round of 69 tied for the third best round in school history and she became only the second freshman in school history post a score below 70. Teammate Stephanie Kim accomplished the feat twice during her freshman season.

"She played solid the whole first round," said Bedortha. "She hit a lot of good shots and putted fabulous."

Bezdicek posted a 78 in the second round for a three-over par 147 total.
