Menlo's Bowie named GSAC Women's Basketball Player of Week


Menlo College's Destinee Bowie earned Golden State Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors, the ninth such recognition for the Oaks. Bowie wins her second weekly honor.

Bowie got conference play rolling in a big way for the 16th-ranked Oaks, posting back-to-back career-bests in wins against Hope International and Life Pacific.

In the 88-82 overtime win over the Royals, Bowie matched a career-best with 27 points, while adding 10 rebounds and three blocks. She followed Saturday by posting 30 points on 14 of 16 shooting. For the week, she shot 85.7 percent (24-28). She leads the Oaks with 20.7 points per game, is averaging nearly seven rebounds a game and is shooting an impressive 70.8 percent.

Menlo (6-1) has one game on tap this weekend, a conference tilt against William Jessup University on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. Menlo is 21-8 lifetime against the Warriors.

Women's golf

Menlo College added Santa Barbara CC's Stephanie Farouze to its roster for next season Menlo Director of Golf Mike Givens announced.

Farouze has a wide range of success after spending time in southern California at Santa Barbara City College.

She will be graduating in communications in 2019 after receiving her GED from Santa Barbara in 2016. She has competed on courses that the Oaks see on a regular basis, including Tahquitz Creek, where Menlo will compete in the Marymount Spring Invitational in March.

Among her impressive finishes is a round of 69 during the Western State Conference finals at Alisal River, where she placed second.

Farouze has a pair of first-place finishes this year and a tournament win in 2017 at the Bakersfield Golf Tournament at Rio Bravo.

"I am really excited Stephanie is going to be a member of the Women's Golf team for the fall of 2019," Givens said. "Stephanie is a fierce competitor and her passion for the game of golf, her work ethic, and her academic prowess are attributes that will make her a great teammate and an asset to Menlo and the women's golf team."

Menlo resumes its golf schedule March 4-5, 2019 in Palm Springs for the Marymount Spring Invite.
