Women's Golf Team Prepares for Peg Barnard Invitational

April 12, 2002

The UCLA women's golf team, boasting five top 10 finishes this season, will play in the Peg Barnard Collegiate tournament hosted by Stanford this weekend at the Stanford Golf Course.

The Bruins will field a team of three freshmen, two sophomores and a senior for an event in which they finished third in 2000.

In their last appearance, the Bruins finished fourth at the ASU/Ping Invitational with a score of 883, 19-over par. That 54-hole score was the lowest team total in Coach Carrie Leary's three-year UCLA career.

In the ASU event, sophomore Gina Umeck tied for sixth place after posting a final round, two-under par score of 70. Umeck has finished in the top 10 in her last two tournaments, placing fourth at the Pioneer Bruin Classic last month. She ranks third on the team with a scoring average of 75.5.

Sophomore Yvonne Choe leads the Bruins with a scoring average of 75.1. She posted a three-under par score of 69 in the final round of the ASU tournament and has placed among the top 20 in her last three events.

Senior Alicia Um ranks second on the team with a 75.3 scoring average. She tied for 24th place at the ASU tournament. At the Stanford/Pepsi Invitational in October, Um fired a final round, three-under par score of 69 to tie for 11th place.

Sophomore Melissa Martin boasts one top 10 finish and two other top 20 finishes this season. She is averaging 75.7 strokes per round and a team-leading 91 percent of her scores have counted in team scoring.

Redshirt Freshman Kristin Thompson recorded her best collegiate finish by tying for 10th place at the Pioneer Bruin Classic. She is expected to compete as an individual at Arizona State.
