Cougars finish season at NCAA West Regionals

CORVALLIS, Ore.--BYU ended its season with an 18th place finish at the NCAA West Regional on Saturday at Trysting Tree Golf Course.

The Cougars faced strong afternoon winds which drove scores up and made it difficult to gain ground on the other schools. BYU shot a final round

Individually, BYU was led by Carrie Summerhays who was only Cougar to shoot in the 70s on the final day. Lisa Dernick struggled with the windy conditions and shot her highest round of the season while Adrianne Gibby shot the second-best final round for BYU.

Arizona's Natalie Gulbis capped off her first-ever NCAA West Regional women's golf tournament with a 1-under 71 on Saturday to help her Wildcats to the team title and claim medalist honors in the process. The freshman shot a total of 9-under 207 at the par-72, 6,089-yard Trysting Tree Golf Club over the 54-hole tournament, while Arizona put up a team total of 4-over-par 868 to win by 20 strokes.

Six of the eight schools who qualified for the NCAA West Regional were from the PAC-10 Conference. Ohio State and Michigan State joined Arizona, Stanford, UCLA, Arizona State, Washington and USC as qualifiers for the national championships in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida May 22-25.
