Wyoming's Jordan Lintz Finishes Ninth at 1999 WAC Women's Golf Championship:Wyoming junior Jordan Lintz closed out an outstanding week of golf, shootinga final round 78 to finish ninth out of 55 golfers at the 1999 WesternAthletic Conference Women's Golf Championship held April 19-21 at PoppyRidge Golf Course in Livermore, Calif. Lintz completed the 54-hole eventwith a three-round total 233.

The Cowgirls finished 11th out of 11 teams in the team competition.Niina Laitinen of Tulsa successfully defended her individual title from1998, as she captured the individual crown with a 54-hole total 222.Laitinen led her Tulsa Golden Hurricane squad to a one-shot victory over1998 WAC Champion TCU.

"This was a great individual accomplishment for Jordan (Lintz),"said UW women's golf coach Jill Johnson. "She has worked extremely hardthis year. To finish in the Top 10 in this league is as good as it gets. Ican't say enough about the way Jordan has handled herself all season.

"Jordan hit the ball as good this week as she had all year. Sheplayed solid from tee to green which was critical, because the conditionswere very windy with extremely deep rough. If you missed the fairway onthis golf course, you were in serious trouble.

"We didn't play as well as we would have liked to, but we're still avery young team. I was really pleased with the way the girls hung in there.The course was a difficult one, but even when our girls had a bad hole theydid a good job of refocusing and concentrating on the next hole."

The five individuals that competed for the Wyoming at this year'sWAC Championship included one junior, Lintz; three sophomores, KatherineCrowley, Jana Johnson and Jessi Santesson; and one freshman Tara Ludwig.
