Cowgirl Golf Finishes 17th at BYU Dixie Classic

April 6, 1999

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The Wyoming Cowgirls placed 17th out of 24 teams at the BYU Dixie Classic on Tuesday. The tournament was played on the Sunbrook Golf Course in St. George, Utah. Wyoming junior Jordan Lintz finished 35th out of 127 golfers. Lintz shot a 54-hole total of 237, 21 over par.

As a team the Cowgirls shot a 54-hole total of 986. Oklahoma State won the team title with a 912. The individual champion was Carrie Summerhays of Brigham Young. She shot a six-over par total of 222.

"We had a solid individual performance by Jordan (Lintz)," said Wyoming women's golf coach Jill Johnson. "Jordan has been amazingly consistent all season, and has really had only one bad tournament this year.

"Katherine (Crowley) had two good rounds the first 36 holes of this tournament, but she didn't have the kind of final round I know she was looking for on Tuesday. Katherine has played some good golf this spring. She finished 11th at the Campbell University Tournament in North Carolina in early March.

"This was our final regular-season tournament of the season. Now we start preparing for the WAC Championships later this month in California."

This year's Dixie Classic was played Monday and Tuesday, April 5-6 on the Sunbrook Golf Course in St. George, Utah. The Sunbrook course measured 6,015 yards and played to a par of 72.

The final tournament of the season for the Cowgirls will be April 19-21, 1999, at the Western Athletic Conference Championships in Livermore, Calif. The '99 WAC Championships will be played on the Poppy Ridge, Golf Course.
