Despite a 10th place finish, Minnesota happy with its team score in Oregon tournament

first_imgSpeaking of low scores, junior Young Na Lee fired the Gophers’ low round of the tournament for the second time in a row, carding a 1-under par 71 in the final round to help Minnesota solidify its finish.Lee’s 71 was also a career best, one stroke better than her previous mark which she set a year ago at the Indiana Invitational and tied last week at the Diablo Grande.Final rounds seem to be Lee’s specialty, as all three of her best scores have all come on the last day.Unfortunately, those numbers have always followed rounds in the 80s.“She does a good job of finishing with good rounds,” associate head coach Kristine Wessinger said. “Now we just need to get her to start off with those 71s and 72s.“But I was proud that she came back and finished very well.”In her brilliant round yesterday, Lee didn’t think she necessarily hit the ball a lot better, but her mindset allowed her to be successful.“I was a little bit more aggressive on my shots and more decisive,” she said. “I didn’t hit the ball bad the first rounds so it’s the mental side that I have to improve on, but it’ll come.” Despite a 10th place finish, Minnesota happy with its team score in Oregon tournamentMarch 26, 2008Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThe Minnesota women’s golf team’s version of the West Coast Swing has come to a close, but the Gophers have some solid play to show for it.Minnesota finished off its trip yesterday, firing a 54-hole total of 944 at Eugene Country Club to finish 10th out of 15 teams in the Oregon Duck Invitational.Though it was a significantly lower finish than the Gophers’ victory last week at the Diablo Grande Invitational, they managed to best that winning score by 10 in Oregon.And similar to Diablo Grande, Minnesota showed steady improvement over all three rounds.A final round 307 kept the Gophers firmly in the 10 spot and bettered their first round 323 and second round 314.Individually, Minnesota was led by Teresa Puga, who was a model of consistency, shooting a 77-78-77-232 to tie for 24th.Puga, a freshman from A Coruña, Spain, has played just four collegiate tournaments and has been a dependable anchor in each, but Director of Golf Brad James sees potential for much lower rounds from her.“She’s obviously very consistent but she’s also capable of shooting some scores in the 60s,” he said. “I think once she gets more comfortable in her environment you’ll start seeing some low scores for her.”last_img read more

The Edgewood Academy foreign exchange student from Nigeria played football for the first time four months ago and is now being offered scholarships from Division I schools all over the country.AUBURN — All but one of Auburn’s 2015 signees have enrolled in summer classes, a team spokesman confirmed.Edgewood Academy defensive end Prince Tega Wanogho is the lone recruit from last year’s signing class yet to enroll, according to school records. Former Michigan cornerback Blake Countess has also enrolled, leaving the transfers of former Texas offensive lineman Darius James and former Ohio State cornerback signee Jamel Dean outstanding as of Auburn’s first summer mini-mester, as first reported by AL.com.Wanogho is expected to arrive in the coming weeks.“He’s taking a little while but he’s going to be fine and everything,” defensive line coach Rodney Garner said. “Spoke with him (Monday) night.” Wanogho is well on his road to recovery from a broken left fibula and tibia he suffered playing basketball in January.“He’s come off the broken leg very well,” defensive coordinator Will Muschamp said last month. “When he was on campus for A-Day, his body is completing filling out exactly what we felt like would take off.”Though a redshirt is anticipated for Wanogho, a native of Nigeria with just one year of football experience, he is expected to be able to participate in fall camp at or near 100 percent.“The learning curve, he’s only played football one year, it’ll be interesting to see how he adjusts,” Garner said. “He’s got to get off of that injury and I’m sure same thing, based on what the medical staff says, we’ve probably got to pace him a little bit to get him through camp too, just from the wear and tear and pounding on that leg.”Auburn’s early enrollees:Tyler Carr, Chander Cox, Tim, Irvin, Tyler Queen, Jovon Robinson, Bailey Sharp, Jason Smith, Maurice SwainAuburn’s first mini-mester enrollees:Montavious Arkinson, Jordan Colbert, Blake Countess, Byron Cowart, Carlton Davis, Javarius Davis, Ryan Davis, Jeremiah Dinson, Marquel Harrell, Jalen Harris, Jeff Holland, Mike Horton, Jaunta’vius Johnson, Kerryon Johnson, Kaleb Kim, Richard McBryde, Ian Shannon, Darius Slayton, Darrell WilliamsYet to enroll:Jamel Dean, Darius James, Prince Tega Wanogholast_img read more
