Wildcats finish fourth at Pac-12 Championship

Tucson, Ariz. -  The University of Arizona women's golf team completed play at the Pac-12 Championships on Wednesday in Tucson, Ariz. at Sewailo Golf Club. The Wildcats finished in fourth place at 23-over-par after shooting one-over during Wednesday's round.

 "Early on we were rocking it, until we had a rough patch on the back nine," said coach Laura Ianello. "We had a few bad holes down the stretch that cost us a few shots. Haley hadn't been feeling too good, but she came out on fire on the front nine. She has a heart of gold and gave it her best making the turn at five-under, but I think she got a little tired on the back nine. "
 
Sophomore Haley Moore earned a Top-5 finish at three-over par after she carded a 72 on the round. Junior Krystal Quihuis also tied for fifth place, finishing at three-over-par for the tournament. Senior Jessica Vasilic posted an even par round of 72, and earned a finish for 15
th place. Sophomore Gigi Stoll finished in a tie for 22nd place after shooting a 77 on the day. Senior Wanasa Zhou shot a 74 in her third round, and she finished in a tie for 44th place.
 
This was the ninth tournament so far this season that Moore has finished inside of the Top-12 as well as being her eighth Top-10 finish.
 
UCLA won the tournament shooting two-under par, and were 21 shots clear of second place Colorado. Lilia Vu of UCLA won the individual competition at seven-under-par.
 
"We are NCAA Regional bound and we will find out tomorrow where we will play," said Ianello. "We have a solid week to prepare for whatever course we are playing. Hopefully we will eventually be on our way to Chicago for the NCAA Championships."
 
Arizona will find out where they play in the NCAA Regionals on April 27 at 8 a.m. MST on the Golf Channel. The four regional sites are in Columbus, Ohio, hosted by Ohio State University; Lubbock, Texas, hosted by Texas Tech University; in Athens, Georgia, hosted by the University of Georgia; and in Albuquerque, New Mexico, hosted by the University of New Mexico.
