CU women’s golf: Buffs earn split at SDSU match play event

The Colorado women’s golf team earned a split Monday after two rounds of match play in San Diego State’s March Mayhem at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.

Seeded as the No. 9 team, the Buffaloes fell to No. 8 seed Oregon, 3-2-0 in their opening round, which moved them into the consolation bracket of the tournament. Colorado bounced back in the afternoon with a strong performance, beating No. 16 seed UC Irvine, 4-0-1.

Colorado senior Alexis Keating won her match against Oregon’s Marcella Pranovla 4 and 2 to begin the day. The match remained all-square through the first seven holes. Keating gradually built her lead to secure the win. The Elma, Wash., native followed that by winning 3 and 1 against UC Irvine’s Samantha Chan.

Sophomore Brittany Fan joined Keating as the only Buffs to win both of their matches. In her first match against Oregon, Fan defeated Petra Salko, 2-up and closed out the day with a 4 and 3 victory over UC Irvine’s Joy Kim.
