ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. – CSU Bakersfield’s Tori Peers shot low again to lead the Roadrunner women’s golf team in the second and final round of the Cal Poly Lady Mustang Invitational. The junior’s second-round 76 on Sunday helped Peers tie for CSUB’s all-time 36-hole individual score (73-76-149, +5).
“The team struggled today,” said Meghan Thomason, Director of Golf at CSUB. “The bright spot was Tori’s play this weekend. She’s an awesome representative of the program, on and off the course. I’m happy to see her hard work paying off. There’s a lot to work on before our final tournament of the fall next week.”
Peers, a native of Grand Island, Neb., finished the tournament at 149, good enough to place sixth in the 53-woman field. Freshman Macey Mills shot another 83 on Sunday to finish second for the ‘Runners at 166. Junior April Chang was one stroke behind Mills in Round 2 while freshman Misha Vega improved two strokes to 84 to round out the ‘Runner scoring four. Vega and junior Deedra Dollesin finished tied at 170 on the tournament.
As a squad, the ‘Runners wrapped up Cal Poly’s invitational ninth of nine teams with a two-round score of 649 (+73). The mark is the seventh-best 36-hole score for the ‘Runners all-time. Santa Clara held off host Cal Poly to win the team title at 582. The Broncos’ Kristin Le took the individual crown at an impressive seven-under 137.
The Roadrunners have one more tournament on their fall schedule. CSUB will head to Santa Clara’s Colby Invitational, Oct. 31-Nov. 1, in San Jose, Calif. before taking the winter off. The ‘Runners will return to spring competition Feb. 7 with a dual at CSUN.
