VERONA, WISC. - The University of California women's golf team continued its impressive 2008 fall season as the Golden Bears won their second tournament in a row, capturing the Badger Invitational Sunday, Sept. 28 in Verona, Wisconsin with a 54-hole score of 889 (296, 297, 296 +25), topping host Wisconsin (296, 306, 300 - 902 +38) and third-place finisher Minnesota (314, 290, 304 - 908, +44). Cal's winning 889 had the second best 54-hole Badger Invitational score in history. Purdue owns the record of 879 set in 2005. Cal's team score also tied the fifth best 54-hole score at University Ridge Golf Course (women's college scores).

Individually, the Bears' top competitor was sophomore Pia Halbig, who finished the 6,216-yard, par-72 University Ridge Golf Course in fourth place with a 219 (73, 70, 76 +3). Senior Allison Goodman (75, 75, 73) and freshman Angela Villela (72, 75, 76) tied for 10th with + 7 scores of 223. Senior Shannon Yocum, who had Cal's best round of the tournament with a 71 on Sunday, tied for 14th with a +8 224 (76, 77, 71), while freshman Diane Kwon was tied for 26th with a +17 233 (76, 78, 79).

"We played solidly from start to finish in this tournament," said Cal coach Nancy McDaniel. "I am really proud of my team to be able to stay under 300 for all three rounds. The key for the week was our team effort. Our scores showed we are a well-rounded squad and we are happy to be able to build on that."

The Bears were fresh off of winning their opening fall tournament, the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins, Colo., back on Sept. 8-9, when the team shot an 18-under 846 (284-273-289). This fall is the first time the Cal women's golf team has won two straight tournaments since the 2003 season when the Bears had three straight fall tournament victories and seven tournament wins total. Cal will next compete at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational, Oct. 6-8 in Sahalee, Wash.
