Bruins Travel to Wildcat Invitational

Feb. 22, 2004

The second-ranked UCLA women's golf team travels to the Wildcat Invitational, hosted by the University of Arizona at Arizona National Golf Club at Sabino Springs, Feb. 23-25.

The Wildcat Invitational features several of the nation's top teams, including third-ranked Arizona, sixth-ranked California and defending champion Pepperdine.

At their last tournament, the Bruins won the Regional Challenge by 32 shots at the Palos Verdes Golf Club. In addition, junior All-American Charlotte Mayorkas won her second collegiate event, posting a six-under par score of 207 over 54 holes.

"We're very excited to have started off our spring season with a victory at the Regional Challenge," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "It gives our team a lot of confidence.

"We're looking forward to the tournament in Arizona," she continued. "We have prepared and practiced for it, and we are ready to play."

UCLA will send six players to the Wildcat Invitational, one of whom will compete as an individual. Five of those six players - Mayorkas, sophomore Susie Mathews, freshman Hannah Jun, and seniors Hana Kim and Bridget Dwyer - are ranked among the nation's Top 100 players. Senior Krystal Shearer, who tied for 13th place at the Regional Challenge is unranked because she has not played the minimum amount of rounds.

On Feb. 18, Mayorkas was named GolfWeek Magazine's inaugural Player of the Week after her victory at the Regional Challenge.

"We're very proud of Charlotte and all that she has accomplished," said Forsyth. "Every team needs a great leader and Charlotte has been our leader for the past two seasons."

Mathews, who tied for second place at the Regional Challenge, ranks 12th nationally and second on the team with a stroke average of 73.4 and three rounds under par.

Jun ranks 72nd in the country and boasts one Top 20 finish in four events. Dwyer, who tied for 34th place at the Regional Challenge, ranks 88th nationally with one Top 10 finish and three rounds under par. Kim, who will compete in Arizona as an individual, ranks 73rd and third on the team with a stroke average of 75.1. Shearer has a stroke average of 75.3 after one event.
