Women’s golfer denied back-to-back wins

Long Beach State senior All-American Kay Hoey was denied a second consecutive tournament win on Wednesday, finishing in a four-way tie for third place.

Hoey, who started the day as the leader at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational, shot 9-over-par 81 in the final round to finish the event 10-over 226. Stanford’s Mari Chun, who started the round in second place, maintained her pace and shot even-par 72 for the round to win the tournament with a 2-over 218 score.

After sinking five birdies in the previous round, Hoey started the front nine with bogeys on the third and fourth holes and things didn’t get any better.

Hoey finished the round with five bogeys and two double bogeys to fall in the standings.

As a team, the 49ers started the round tied for fifth but dropped to sixth after falling 15 shots off the pace from the previous day and shot 30-over 318 for the round. LBSU fired a 73-over 937 score for the tournament.

Freshman Lee Lopez carded the best score of the round for LBSU, finishing 5-over 77 to end the tournament in a four-way for eighth place with an 11-over 227 total.
