Cougars Approach Spring Golf

Washington State University’s women’s golf team tees off their spring season by traveling to Peoria, Arizona to compete in the Westbrook Spring Invitational on Feb. 21-23.

Fifteen universities will be competing in the event, including Oregon and Oregon State from the Pac-12 conference. The remaining participating schools are College of Charleston, Illinois, Indiana State, Iowa, Kansas State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Tennessee, Tulsa and Wisconsin. The University of Wisconsin Badgers will be the hosts for the second consecutive year of the tournament.

WSU will be looking to improve on their showing from last year. They finished tied for ninth place with Kansas State, 38 strokes behind winner Ohio State.

The Cougars finished their fall season last November competing in the Pac-12 Preview where they placed eighth in the tournament, 39 strokes behind The University of Washington.

The team consists of freshmen Alivia Brown, Jamie Midkiff, BreeLin Wanderscheid, sophomore Cherokee Kim, and juniors Monica Huang, Rachel Lewis and Nani Yanagi. Seniors Lindsay Harmon and Kristen Rue round out the roster.

  1. I like how you talked about last season and compared talked about improving it for this year-since this will only be the second track meet so far this season. I also thought it was smart that you included the names of the players.

  2. I like this story. However, I think it would be nice if you added a few key indvidual players to the piece. I like the team aspect to the story but golf at the college level also involves individual performances. I think highlighting one or two individuals would help with the advance story.
