Pioneer women repeat as Shootout champions
Submitted By Steve Connolly
It was an afternoon of repeats at Hiddenbrooke Country Club on Sunday, March 2nd. The Cal State East Bay women's golf team repeated as champions of the Tim Tierney Pioneer Shootout, shooting a collective score of 310 (+22) in the second round to finish at 633 (+57). They bested second-place Chico State by 14 strokes on a wet and chilly day on the par-72 course.Ê
Junior Linda Brown played a remarkable bogey-free round of 70 (-2) to run away with the individual championship by eight strokes over the next closest golfer. She finished at 146 (+2) overall and was the only player in the field of 63 to shoot a round under par.
"Linda's success is so well deserved," said head coach Alan Sue. "I said the same thing last week, but I wasn't surprised to see her shoot two under par to win the individual championship today."
Senior Andrea Castellanos finished in a tie for second place with a total of 154 (+10).
Junior Arielle Swan-Smith ended up in the top-10 overall after firing her second straight 81 (+9) to finish at 162 (+18) overall. The fourth Pioneer team score came from sophomore Melissa Hosman, whose second-round 84 (+12) gave her a tournament total of 171 (+27), good for 27th place individually.
Ysabel Cabreira shaved two strokes off her Monday score and turned in a 92 (+20) to finish at 186 (+42) in 43rd place. Competing individually, Jackie Ang carded a 90 on Tuesday and took 47th place with a total of 192 (+48). Iris San Juan shot 103 (+31) to finish at 226 (+82), and Tasha Coleman posted a 111 (+39) for a total of 235 (+91). The pair ended up in 55th and 57th place, respectively.
