HENDERSON, Nev. — BYU women's golf sits in second after shooting 15-over-par on a windy first day at the West Coast Conference Championship at Reflection Bay Golf Club.

The Cougars trail Pepperdine by four shots entering the second round after the Waves posted an 11-over par 303 in round one. San Francisco holds the third spot shooting a 17-over 305 during their opening 18.

Santa Clara sits in fourth at 21-over par while the defending champion Gonzaga Bulldogs round out the first-round scoring with a 36-over-par 324.

Annick Haczkiewicz and Allysha Mae Mateo led the Cougars on day one posting matching 75's. Their 3-over-par rounds gives them a share of second place with Santa Clara's Borina Sutikto and San Francisco's Toni Sottile. The four are five shots off the pace set by Pepperdine's Lauren Gomez who fired a 2-under-par 70.

BYU freshman Addie Anderson is one back of her senior teammates after a 4-over 76 in her first round at the conference championship. Anderson sits in a tie for sixth, six shots off the first round lead.

Lila Galeai and Kerstin Fotu are seven shots off the pace after carding a pair of 77's on the opening day. 

The Cougars will tee off at 7:50 a.m. PDT Friday and will again be paired with San Francisco and Pepperdine. Live scoring will be available at golfstat.com. Also follow BYU women's golf on Instagram for live updates, photos and videos.

HENDERSON, Nev. — BYU women's golf heads to Nevada, April 22-24, in search of its fourth West Coast Conference title in the past six years.

The 2022 version of the WCC Championship will be hosted by Reflection Bay Golf Club, a par-72 championship course that will measure 6,347-yards for the tournament.

BYU will be paired with Pepperdine and San Francisco on Thursday, with tee times beginning at 7:50 a.m. PDT.

Annick Haczkiewicz, Allysha Mae Mateo, Lila Galeai, Adeline Anderson and Kerstin Fotu will compete for the Cougars in the 54-hole championship. The BYU five has combined for 21 top-25 finishes and six top-10's in nine events during the 2021-22 season.

The Cougars enter the conference championship having won three times during the year. BYU took home back-to-back team championships in the fall at the Dick McGuire Invitational (Sept. 13-14) and the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championship (Sept. 20-21) to kick off the season.

BYU also won the team title at the Texas State Invitational (Feb. 7-8) and completed the sweep with Haczkiewicz taking home the individual crown.

Since joining the WCC in 2011-12, the Cougars have won the women's golf championships three times—2016, 2017 and 2018. BYU enters the 2022 event ranked No. 39 in the country, the highest ranked team in the conference. 

Live scoring of the championship will be available at golfstat.com.
