SEAL BEACH, Calif. – BYU women’s golf earned its best finish of the season with a tie for fifth after a final round of 295 at The Gold Rush on Tuesday. 

“It feels good to finish strong,” said head coach Carrie Roberts. “I’m glad we came out and played much better today.”

While difficult conditions and inconsistency plagued BYU in Monday’s opening 36 holes, Tuesday’s final 18-holes saw the Cougars improve 21 shots over its second-round score to finish the tournament with a total of 309-316-295—920.

No. 21 USC won The Gold Rush Tournament with a three-round total of 864, for its third-consecutive title of the spring. The Trojans were led by individual winner Allisen Corpuz, who shot 6-under 66 in the final round and 206 for the tournament. Rounding out the top five teams were UNLV and Cal Poly at 898, Fresno State at 899, followed by Sacrament State and BYU at 920.

BYU finished 18 shots ahead of WCC-foe Santa Clara, and were one of just four teams to score under 300 in the final round.

The Cougars also posted three top-20 individual finishers. Allysha Mae Mateo led BYU on Tuesday with a team-best, third-round score of 2-under 70. Her three-round total of 223 was good for ninth place and Mateo’s fifth top-10 finish of the season as well as the 10th of her career.  

“Allysha Mae played really well today,” said Roberts.  “She understands and was in real control of herself and her game.”

Joining Mateo in the top 20 was Kerstin Fotu who shot 228 to finish T16 and Cythia Tu who finished at 229 to tie for 20th.

Next up for the Cougars is the Julie Inkster Invitational on March 8-9, hosted by San Jose State and San Francisco at the The Meadow Club in Fairfax, California.
