Tulsa holds on to win WAC championship

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) -- Tulsa got an eagle and birdie on the final hole Wednesday to slip past Texas Christian and win the Western Athletic Conference women's golf championship.

Dani Mallon rolled in the eagle putt and Maiko Senda made the birdie to give the Golden Hurricane a three-stroke margin.

"This is a sweet victory," said coach Dale McNamara, who is retiring this season after 26 years. "Today I was hoping to seethe tenacity that I've seen in these kids at times this year. Sure enough, the birdie-eagle finish was indicative of sheer guts."

Tulsa finished with a 54-hole total of 911. TCU carded a 914 and San Jose State had the day's best round, 305, to finish third at 927. Hawaii (957), Texas-El Paso (961) and SMU (965) rounded out the field.

The individual title went to TCU senior Angela Stanford, who led from the start. She shot a 4-over-par 76 Wednesday and wound up at 218, 2 over. Senda and Tulsa teammate Stacy Prammanasudh tied for second at 223. Prammanasudh had the day's best round, a 72, and Senda shot 74.

The WAC title was Tulsa's second straight. The tournament was played at Forest Ridge Golf Club.
