Stanford women on the rise after finishing seventh in golf event


Senior Ziyi Wang improved her score for the second straight round and the Stanford women’s golf team moved up a spot to finish seventh at the Northup Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verde Estates on Tuesday.

Wang shot a 2-under 69 over her final round on the Palos Verde Golf Club course to record a 2-under 211 for the tournament. She finished a career-best seventh and her fifth Top 10 result.

The Cardinal, which competes in the Guadalajara International Invitational beginning Sunday in Mexico, was seventh with a score of 869 in a field that included five teams ranked in the top 20.

"To finish seventh in the toughest field of the year is a huge boost of confidence for the players on this team," Stanford coach Anne Walker said. "The last two days were especially strong and showed that we have the players to continue to compete on the national stage. We will keep working hard and I am sure we will see some more great finishes ahead."

Sophomore Aline Krauter also shot a 2-under 69 on Tuesday to move up to a tie for 16th. Freshman Angelina Ye finished 20th, her fourth consecutive Top-20 finish to begin her career.
