Long Beach State Sets Single Round Record At Arizona Wildcat Invitational
Long Beach State shot a 6-under 282, besting the old record by two strokes.
Tucson, Ariz. - Led by Holland Shourds’ 4-under par 68 in the first round of the Wildcat Invitational, Long Beach State combined to shoot a 6-under par 282, the best single round in school history. The Beach ended the day after two rounds in fourth place, in front of four ranked programs. In the 17-team field.
Sophomore Holland Shourds had six birdies in the first round to finish with a career-low round of 68, 4-under par to pace Long Beach State on the way to the record round. Shourds shot an even-par 72 in the second round, and is tied for third place in the tournament at 4-under par.
Haley Tygret and Jennifer Yu were also both under-par in the first round for the Beach, each shooting one-under 71, and Maria Davis and Cara Barker were both even in the first half of the day to complete the round and break the previous record, set back in 2006.
Tygret had a 74 in the second round to close the day tied for 20th place at +1, while Yu and Davis were both two strokes back of that mark at +3, as Long Beach State finished the day at 3-over par as a team in fourth place overall.
Top-ranked UCLA leads the field after two rounds, with hosts Arizona and Texas the other two schools in front of the Beach entering the final round Tuesday. Follow the action live tomorrow at www.golfstat.com.
