Cal Baptist wins 4th straight PacWest title

Anahi Servin of the Academy of Art in San Francisco took the individual crown and Cal Baptist of Riverside grabbed the next five places en route to winning a fourth straight team title in the PacWest Women’s Golf Championships at Wigwam Golf Course in Litchfield Park, Ariz.

The Lancers carded a tournament-record score of 292-288-295—875, 11-over-par, followed by the Academy of Art at 296-299-312—907, Biola of La Mirada 325-310-310—945, Holy Names of Oakland at 308-315-324–947 and Dixie State at 318-311-319—948.

Hawaii Pacific was sixth at 325-328-324—977, followed by Dominican of San Rafael at 343-331-324—998, Point Loma Nazarene in San Diego at 328-338- 337—1003 and Hawaii-Hilo at 351-357-353—1061.

“It was just a total team effort from start to finish,” Coach Marc Machado of Cal Baptist said. “It’s a program-best for a 54-hole tournament and a conference best for anybody. I am just overwhelmed, it’s such a great stepping stone heading into regionals.

“They rose to the occasion and they dominated. All the records all the long way, they killed it. I am so happy. We have just been staying in the present. We have our long-term goals but we have to focus on the here and now. We want to take it one step at a time and build off everything, we’ve been gaining a lot of momentum and confidence. This young team is playing like a veteran team.”

Servin, a freshman from Paraguay, posted a score of 64-72-70—206 to outdistance five Lancers for the individual title. She led virtually from wire-to-wire thanks to her opening 64, and when things tightened up a bit in the final round, she recorded birdies on the first four holes of the back nine.

Erica Want led California Baptist in second at 73-66-76—215, followed by teammates Jocelyn Chee Yi Min at 71-77-71—219, Kristyna Abrahamova at 76-73-73— 222, Samantha Martirez at 75-72-76—223 and Yifei Wang at 73-77-75—225.

Vicky Kuo of Academy of Art was seventh at 77-72-78—227, while Jamie Lopez of Holy Names shot 76-77-76—229 to tie for eighth with Alexis Gopfert of Biola, who wound up at 81-76-72—229, and Mint Chimsuti of Hawaii Pacific, who came in at 79-74-76—229.

Christine Perez led Point Loma Nazarene with a score of 77-82-81—240 to finish in a tie for 18th that included Madison Beckett of Dominican at 77-82-81—240.
