COD Women’s Golf takes 3rd at PCAC Finals, 3 named All-Conference & Liu named Athlete of the Year

COD Women's Golf participated in their final Conference event of the 2017 season, as the team finished 3rd at the tournament, but 2nd overall, three were named All-Conference and sophomore Li Chi Liu (Palm Desert H.S.) was named Conference Athlete of the Year.

The Roadrunners sent four participants to its final event on the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference (PCAC) calendar, which was hosted at the par-72 St. Mark Golf Club in San Marcos.

Although Liu was unable to participate in the PCAC Finals due to a family emergency in her native Taiwan, she still had enough points to win the Conference Athlete of the Year award in back-to-back seasons. Liu was also added to the All-Conference team as well.

All four PCAC teams participated in this event, with the Roadrunners hitting 1 stroke ahead of their nearest competition, Mt. San Jacinto College. Desert would finish with a total of 799 points in the two day event.

Freshman Zoe Walker (Palm Desert Xavier Prep.) struggled on day one of the PCAC Finals, shooting a 20-over 92, but regrouped and dropped 8-strokes from her previous effort, shooting an 84 on day two for a total of 176 to lead the team and win an All-Conference selection.

Freshman Natalie Brugler (Santa Cruz Soquel) shot a 19-over 91 on day one and an 18-over 90 on day two, for a total of 181 in the two day Conference Finals, finishing second on the team and winning an All-Conference selection.

Shooting a 109 on day one and a 112 on day two was freshman Vivica Garcia (Thermal Coachella Valley). Sophomore Alexa Perez (Indio Shadow Hills) shot a 108 on day one and a 113 on day two, to wrap up the PCAC Finals for the Roadrunners.
