Wong, UC Davis win Big West titles

Andrea Wong of UC Davis captured the individual title and the Aggies put four players in the top five while coasting their sixth consecutive Big West Conference Women’s Championship at El Macero Country Club near Sacramento.

The Aggies posted a score of 288-281-289–858, six-under-par, with Hawaii a distant second at 291-290-306–887.

“I think the improvement we’re seeing every week is awesome and I think going into NCAA regionals, this is a good place to start,” said coach Anna Temple of UC Davis, who was selected Big West Coach of the Year.

“We still have a lot of work but I think it’s great for the team to see their hard work in some specific areas is paying off.”

Long Beach State totaled 304-301-301–906 and tied for third with UC Riverside, which wound up at 299-301-306–906.

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo was fifth at 293-315-306–914, followed by Cal State Fullerton at 313-299-305–917, UC Irvine at 313-301-312–926 and Cal State Northridge at 307-315-317–939.

Wong, a junior from San Francisco, claimed her third victory of the season at 71-68-69–208, 8-under, followed by Raquel Ek of Hawaii at 72-68-73–213, Paige Lee of UC Davis at 74-70-72–216, Betty Chen of UC Davis at 75-69-73–217 and Blair Lewis, also of UC Davis, at 68-75-75–218.

“I was hitting my driver pretty well,” Wong said. “I was putting myself in really good positions. I think the key for this tournament was I played the par-5s really well. I took advantage of my length and scored really well on those.

“I stayed patient the whole time and had some really good looks. Overall, I just had a really consistent tournament.”

Savannah Vilaubi of UC Riverside shot 71-70-78–219, followed by Nicole Cruz of Hawaii at 70-74-77–221, Kassidy Teare of Long Beach State at 75-74-73–222 and Hannah Facchini of UC Riverside at 76-75-72–223.
