Oberiano Finishes 3rd Against Division II Competition

WAIKALOA, Hawaii — Occidental women's golfer Kristin Oberiano finished Round 3 strong despite windy conditions on Tuesday, taking third place overall against NCAA Division II Competition.

The senior from Guam, who has been named All-SCIAC in each of her three seasons on top of winning the conference's Freshman of the Year Award, had rounds of 7-over 77, 75 and 80 for a three-round score of 232.

Samantha Rocha had Oxy's second-best total and finished 17th overall at 253. Katy Uchiyama was third for the Tigers and 19th overall at 255.

Oberiano's individual standout performance comes one day after the Tigers set a program record for an 18-hole score, shooting 325 in Round 1 at the Dennis Rose Invitational on Monday. Oberiano, Rocha, Uchiyama and Hana Mizuno were Oxy's four scorers.

The Tigers competed against scholarship schools Cal St. Monterey Bay, Hawaii-Hilo, Hawaii Pacific, St. Martin's and Concordia (OR).

Cal St. Monterey Bay and Hawaii-Hilo tied for first. Saint Martins Jennifer Leides was the low medalist at 225.

Next Round: The Tigers are done with the Fall portion of their season. Oxy returns to the course officially on Feb. 20 for SCIAC No. 1 at the Morongo Golf Club.
