ISU Second, On-iam First at Hurricane Invite
CORAL GABLES, Fla.- The No. 21 Iowa State women’s golf team fired a final-round 294 this afternoon to finish second at the Hurricane Invitational.
Iowa State’s quest for its first tournament title since 2012 fell just one stroke short, as Northwestern nipped the Cyclones in the team race 864-865. ISU entered the final round with a three-shot lead over the Wildcats, but NU shot a 290 today to take home the team title.
It marks the second time in the last three events where the Cyclones finished runner-up.
Senior Sasikarn On-iam became the first Cyclone golfer to capture medalist honors since Victoria Stefansen did it in the 2008, tying for first in the medalist race. On-iam shot a 73 today to close out the 54-hole tournament at 211 (69-69-73), tying with Miami’s Daniela Darquea, who fired rounds of 68-72-71.
On-iam’s 211 tally ranks as the second-best 54-hole score in school history. It is the sixth top-10 finish of her career.
Junior Chonlada Chayanun also picked up a top-10 finish (T7th) this week, recording rounds of 73-70-72 for a 54-hole tally of 215, her second top-10 finish this season and the fourth of her career.
Senior Prima Thammaraks finished strong for the Cyclones by carding a 3-over 74 this afternoon, finishing just outside the top-10 in a tie for 16th (71-73-74) at 218.
The Cyclones will be back in competitive action on Apr. 4 at the 2014 Liz Murphey Invitational in Athens, Ga.
