WSU women’s golf finished in 10th out of the 11 Pac-12 schools that participated in the Pac-12 Championship, April 17–19 in Phoenix, at the Papago Golf Club.

The only school in the Pac-12 that did not participate was University of Utah. 

WSU sophomore Madelyn Gamble finished the Women’s Golf Championship in a tie for third place. This was an incredible finish for the Cougs as Gamble tied WSU Hall of Famer Kim Welch for the best Pac-12 Championship finish in Cougs history.

Gamble’s 212 finish had her tied with Minori Nagano out of University of Oregon, and Catherine Park and Amari Avery, both from University of Southern California. To make matters even more impressive, Gamble is the first ever WSU women’s golfer to card under par in each of the three rounds in the Pac-12 Championship. 

The next best performance out of WSU came from Lily McCauley. McCauley golfed a 227 and tied for 39th place with Annabel Wilson from UCLA and Haylin Harris from University of Colorado.

The winner of the Women’s Golf Pac-12 Championship was University of Southern California as the Trojans put up an impressive score of 15-under 849. University of Oregon was a close second, putting up a total of 856. 

The overall loser of the tournament was Colorado, as they finished with a poor 897 and came in 11th place.

WSU’s women’s golf season has come to an end with the conclusion of this tournament. WSU will be one of six schools to host the NCAA Regionals this season. The NCAA Regionals will take place May 8–10 at Palouse Ridge Golf Club.
