Sept. 15, 2012

OREM, Utah -- The Utah Valley University women's golf team placed third in its first tournament of the year, and second (after losing in a play-off) in its second tournament.

What will tournament No. 3 bring?

The Wolverines tee off at the Oregon State Invitational Monday and Tuesday at the par-72, 6,141-yard Trysting Tree Golf Club in Corvallis, Ore.

The tournament calls for 36 holes on Monday and it will conclude with 18 holes on Tuesday. Monday's opening round tees off with a shot gun start at 9 a.m. PT.

In addition to Utah Valley and host Oregon State, Cal State Northridge, Eastern Washington, Gonzaga, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Northern Arizona, Portland State, San Francisco, Texas A&M -Corpus Christi, Washington, Washington State and Weber State will participate in the event.

At the Montana State Invitational two weeks ago, the Wolverines tied for first, but lost in a sudden-death playoff to the University of Montana.

The Wolverines were in fourth place at the Bobcat Invitational after the first day, but shot themselves into contention on moving day with all five players shooting in the 70s for the first time in school history.

For the tournament, UVU had three players in the top 7: Lynn-Marie Nagel (4th, 75-76-73); Jordyn Dougal (T5th, 80-74-73) and Morgan Workman (T7th, 80-75-74). Behind that trio, Cassandra Lesa (76-78-81) finished in a tie for 13th and Brooke Bliss (80-76-84) finished 22nd.
