Cardinal women move up to finish second in golf tournament


The Stanford women's golf team moved up one spot from its opening round at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational to finish second, wrapping up the fog-shortened event Wednesday in Sammamish, Wash.

The Cardinal went 296-294 to finish at 14-over, eight shots clear of third-place UC Davis and 19 shots behind tournament champion and host Washington.

At the par-72 Sahalee Country Club, Stanford placed three performers in the top 10, highlighted by Lauren Kim's final-round 2-under 70 to finish fourth. Kim, who was tied for 30th after Tuesday's round, knocked in four birdies in her final stretch to secure a 2-over (76-70) for the event.

Stanford's Casey Danielson and defending individual champion Mariah Stackhouse tied for eighth with identical rounds of 72-75, 3-over par for the 36 holes.

Shannon Aubert (76-74) tied for 18th and Quirine Eijkenboom (77-77) tied for 27th.

Washington's SooBin Kim picked up medalist honors, finishing at 8-under to win by nine strokes over teammates Jennifer Yang and Eimi Koga.

The Cardinal returns home to play host to the Stanford Intercollegiate (Oct. 17-19) at Stanford Golf Course.

Hall of Fame

Eight new members of the Stanford Athletics Hall of Fame will be inducted Saturday, adding to a long and distinguished list of individuals honored at the school known as the Home of Champions.

The inductees will be Nicole Barnhart '04 (women's soccer), Notah Begay, III '95 (men's golf), Toi Cook '87 (baseball and football), Laura Granville '02 (women's tennis), A.J. Hinch '96 (baseball), Skip Kenney (men's swimming and diving coach), Anika Leerssen '00 (sailing) and Heather Olson '99 (synchronized swimming).

All of the inductees will be honored at a private reception and dinner at the Bing Concert Hall on Saturday, beginning at 6 p.m. The class also will be introduced at halftime of Stanford's football game against Washington State Friday. Kickoff for that is 6 p.m.

The emcee and master of ceremonies will be Rosalyn Gold-Onwude ('09, MA '10), a familiar face to Cardinal fans. A former standout on the Stanford women's basketball team, Gold-Onwude currently works as a sideline reporter for the Golden State Warriors, a color commentator for the New York Liberty and as an on-camera commentator with the Pac-12 Networks.
