Santa Clara wins Pat Harbottle

santa Clara women's golf carded a season-low 291 in Tuesday's final-round to overcome a three-shot deficit and claim their first team title of the season by four-shots at the Pat Lesser-Harbottle Invitational with an 891 total.

LAKEWOOD, Washington — Sarah Busey recorded her second straight collegiate top-10 finish Tuesday and, this time, it helped the Santa Clara women's golf team come away with a victory.

Thre Racine native shot 3-over-par 75 and tied for ninth place at 5-over 221 as the Broncos shot a season-low 291 and won the Pat Lesser-Harbottle Invitational with an 891 total.

The Broncos moved past second-round leaders Houston Baptist and Grand Canyon with the tournament's second-lowest round and the team's best since scoring a 286 at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic in April. The victory also kept alive a streak of at least one tournament win in each of the last six seasons.

"They played so well this tournament," Santa Clara coach Krystal Kelly said of her team. "They were making putts from all over the place, it was really fun to watch. We also had a hole out from the bunker and several great chip-ins. Both Houston Baptist and Grand Canyon had eagles in the first two holes so we had to play well right out of the gate."

Emily Sumner carded a career-best and tournament-low tying 3-under 69  to pace the Broncos. She climbed 11 spots on the leaderboard to earn her second straight top-10 with a share of sixth-place at 4-over 220. Two other Broncos placed among the top-20 with junior Marni Murez and freshman Claire Choi taking a share of 19th place with a 225 total.

"I'm so proud of this team, they played so well," Kelly added. "It was fun watching Emily shoot her best college round."

The Broncos earned the 23rd team title in program history and the 15th under Kelly, who took over the program in the spring of 2011.

The team returns to the links for its final event of the fall season on October 28 competing in the UC Irvine Invitational at the Santa Ana CC.
