Isagawa wins first college title in season's first event
September 18, 2012 - Robert Collias
In my opinion, it is the first of many, but an elusive collegiate win is now in the hands of 2011 Baldwin graduate Cassy Isagawa, who earned first-team All-American honors for the University of Oregon last year as a freshman.
Here is a copy of the press release on Isagawa's first win, which landed in my in-box this afternoon:

EUGENE, Ore. - Sophomore Cassy Isagawa took individual medalist honors and the University of Oregon women¹s golf team finished third-place overall at the 2012 Topy Cup played at the Tanagura Country Club in Tanagura, Japan.
