Isagawa finishes third at Stanford Intercollegiate
October 17, 2011 - Robert Collias
University of Oregon freshman Cassy Isagawa, a Baldwin High Scool graduate, finished third in the prestigious Stanford Intercollegiate tournament that finished Sunday.
Isagawa's 9-under 204 total (67-67-70) is the second best under-par score in Oregon history — and this is just her third tournament. She started classes three weeks ago.
She led the 29th-ranked Ducks for the sixth straight round and her total was just three off of the school record, behind Kendra Little’s 12-under total from the 2009 Branch Law Firm Invitational.
“I played pretty steady,” Isagawa told goducks.com, the school's athletic website. “And today made some good putts for par. I wasn’t too stressed out coming into today, and wanted to go out and play the best I could since each day is a different day. I’m really happy with the way I’ve been playing this fall. I was in a little rut as a senior, but told myself there was no pressure on me now that I’m a freshman, and just do the best I can.”
In her three college tournaments, Isagawa, the 2010 Hawaii high school champion and Junior PGA Championship winner, has finished 11th, second and third.
And make no mistake, the Stanford event was loaded. The Ducks set a team record of 4-under (282-281-285-848) for the tournament, nine strokes better than ever before, and their fourth-place finish was two strokes ahead of No. 2-ranked Oklahoma State. They finished just six strokes behind No. 1 UCLA.
