Oxy Women Tie Record, Men in 4th at SCIAC 2

VENTURA — The Occidental women's golf team had four scores in the 70s as it tied its school record with a 311 at SCIAC No. 2 at Olivas Links GC over the weekend.

Brianna Kim led the way with a 76, Samantha Rocha shot a 78, and Nicole Henderson and Katy Uchiyama each shot 79s during Round 2 on Sunday.

Oxy shot 311 earlier this Fall at the California State Intercollegiate Championship.

"This was even more impressive that our round earlier this season because the conditions were challenging," Oxy head coach Will Morris said. "The wind was up and the rough was long."

Anna Lundquist led the way with a 77 during Round 1 on Saturday.

Kim had Oxy's best overall two-day score at 156.

Oxy has improved its team score by 37 shots since Round 1 of SCIAC 1. The Tigers currently sit in seventh place in the nationally competitive SCIAC with an opportunity to improve their position.

The Tigers are back in action at the SCIAC Championships on April 18-20 at Brookside.

"Our team is peaking at the right time and I'm excited to see what we can do at the SCIAC Championship," Morris said. 

The Oxy men were solidified their fourth-place standing headed into the SCIAC Championships. 

Tanay Srivastav shot a 75-77-152 to lead the Tigers with the team's best score. 

Oxy was remarkably consistent, scoring 307 as a group each day on the very challenging Babe Course at the Pacific Palms Resort.

Jack Moeller was Oxy's low player on Sunday with his collegiate-best 74 to help the Tigers beat national top-10 La Verne. 

"The golf course is one where each shot is significant and our players had to maintain focus for the entire 36 holes," Morris said. "I'm proud of how well we did."

Both Oxy men's and women's teams have room for improvement as a handful of their top players did not post their usual scores.
