Women's Golf: Sophia Hui Leads Sagehens To Third Place In Season Debut

VENTURA, CA. – The Pomona-Pitzer Women's Golf program kicked off the 2018-19 season with an impressive debut at the California State Intercollegiate in Olivas Links Golf Course, taking third overall behind Division II Point Loma and No. 3 George Fox. The Sagehens shot 601 total as a team, shooting 298 in the first round and 303 in the second. They were a stroke behind second-place George Fox.

"The women's team had a good showing by finishing one shot behind a top-5 D3 school and a D2," said Head Coach John Wurzer. "Sophia Hui's performance was right where she left off from the 2018 1st Team All-SCIAC season and combine that with great debuts by both first year players, Stephanie Yu & Annabelle Huether, we have a lot to look forward to this season."

Sophia Hui was phenomenal in the opening round, shooting 70 (-2), but shot 76 in the second round to finish the tournament at 146. She finished tied for third. First year Stephanie Yu impressed in her collegiate debut, shooting 73 (+1) in the first round and 75 in the second for a total of 148, enough to be tied for fifth place. Her classmate Annabelle Huether finished tied for 14th after shooting 77 in the first round and improving to 74 in the final round for a score of 151. To round up the team scores, sophomore Gabrielle Herzig ended up tied for 24th after shooting 78 in both rounds for a score of 156.

Up Next: The Sagehens will take a break until winter when they compete at the Poet Challenge on Friday, February 15 in Industry, California.
