Kim Leads Golf to Seventh Place Finish

PALM DESERT, Calif. – The Northern Arizona women's golf team posted a 311 Sunday in the third round of the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate to finish seventh overall in the 19-school field. The Lumberjacks were the top finishing Big Sky Conference school, placing ahead of Montana by three strokes.

Northern Colorado, Southern Utah, Montana State, Weber State and Eastern Washington also participated in the event. Fresno State won the event by 13 strokes over the College of Charleston. Cal-State Fullerton, UC Riverside and San Francisco rounded out the top five teams.

Senior Stephanie Kim tied for fifth overall in a tie for fifth with Vanessa Koechli of College of Charleston at six-over par 222. Kim posted a one-over par 73 in the final round, tying for the third lowest score of the day. She finished six strokes back of medalist Kathy Boehm of College of Charleston.

"She played very well," said Head Coach Brad Bedortha. "She hit it well and made a lot of birdies, especially on the par threes. She was very consistent and steady."

Freshman Savana Bezdicek tied for 31st overall after an 82 in the final round. Junior Kaitlen Parsons carded a three-over par 75, improving her score for the third consecutive round. She was 33rd overall in the individual standings at 232.

Sophomore Laura Jabczenski posted an 81 on Sunday, while Susana Mejia recorded an 88. Playing as an individual, sophomore Melissa Olson had an 82 in the final round.

"I thought we could have finished a few places higher," said Bedortha. "We were close again but we could not finish it off to finish a few spots higher. We are competing and staying competitive."

The Lumberjacks finish the fall campaign at the Cal Poly Lady Mustang Invitational Oct 29-30.
