SAMMAMISH — After 31 years of hosting the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational, Washington finally won its home women's golf tournament Wednesday.
After waiting out a two-hour fog to start the final round, the Huskies shot 22-over 886 to claim a 14-shot victory over UC Davis at Sahalee Country Club.
Sophomore SooBin Kim established a tournament record with an 11-under 205, winning by 12 strokes over teammate Charlotte Thomas, who shot a 1-over 217. Surprisingly, Kim was not part of the five-person squad for the Huskies after shooting an 82 in a team qualifier Saturday. She competed as an individual and ran away with the tournament.
"It was really devastating to shoot 82 and not make the team," said Kim, the third Husky to win the tournament and first since Dodie Mazzuca in 1996.
"The coaches were with me after the round comforting me," Kim said. "They still gave me the courage to play — more like more like they believed in me. They wanted me to learn from this experience and turn it around and just work on my game. (The whole week) made me stronger, and I can never exchange this experience for anything."
Seattle University was 15th at 125-over 989. Gonzaga shot 933, tying for seventh with San Jose State
• The Washington State women's golf team placed second at the Price's "Give 'Em Five" Intercollegiate in Las Cruces, N.M. The Cougars shot a 17-over 881. Mallory Kent tied for third at 1-over 217.
• Wildfires have forced the Central Washington football team on the road for six weeks. But the Wildcats (4-2) will finally make their Tomlinson Stadium debut Saturday against Simon Fraser (3-3) at 1 p.m.
