COLUMBUS, Ohio ?- The Arizona women’s golf teams carded a 304 (+16) in the fourth and final round of the 2006 NCAA National Championships and finished the tournament in 17th place with a tournament score of 64-over-par 1216. 


“It was tough out there today,” head coach Greg Allen said.  “The conditions were tougher and we had a rain delay with a few holes left which took us out of any rhyme we had going.”


Playing in her final collegiate golf tournament, senior Cassandra Kirkland posted a four-day score of 299 (+11) and finished in a tie for 29th place to lead Arizona.


“We had two good days and a decent day today, the second round just totally took us out of the tournament,” explained Allen. 


Duke posted a three-over-par 291 in round four and won the 2006 NCAA National Championship with an 1167 (+15).  This is the fourth national championship for the Blue Devils in the last six years, including the 2005 national championship. 


Winning the individual title was USC sophomore Dewi Schreefel with a combined four-day score of two-under-par 286.  Schreefel was the only individual to shoot a tournament score under-par and helped her team to a second place finish.


Freshmen teammates Sommer Scholl and Adriana Zwanck finished in a tie for 43rd place, posting a 302 (+14).  Fellow Classmate Amanda Wilson carded an 86 (+14) in round four and finished the tournament in a tie for 116th place.


Rounding out the Arizona squad was junior Rachel Gavin who shaved six strokes off her round three score of 86 (+14) today and finished with a tournament score of 42-over-par 330. 


“This tournament was a great learning experience for our younger players,” Allen said.  They need to work real hard over the summer and come out ready to play next year.”
