Bezdicek Wins First Collegiate Tournament; Women’s Golf Finishes Third

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Freshman Savana Bezdicek shot an even-par 73 for the second consecutive day to win the Lamkin Grip/Cal Poly Invitational by one stroke over three players tied at one-over par 147.

"She played great today," said Head Coach Brad Bedortha. "She looked comfortable all day long. I had no idea what she shot."

Bedortha and Bezdicek were forced to leave the course at the completion of play and found out about the win via phone at the airport.

"It went good and I had my ups and downs today," said Bezdicek, who birdied the final hole to win the event. "Coach called me over at the airport and I thought I was in trouble. He told me I had just won my college tournament and my jaw dropped open. I was pretty excited."

The Lumberjacks finished third overall in the team standings, six strokes back of Gonzaga and three behind Southern Utah.

Senior Stephanie Kim posted a four-over par 77 to tie for 15th overall at 152, while Darian Spivey carded a five-over 78 to finish 18th overall at 153. Junior Kaitlen Parsons posted an 86 in the final round, while sophomore Laura Jabczenski recorded an 87.

The Lumberjacks return to action in the spring.
