Cougars take second spot at Jim West Challenge
The Cougars had a great final showing of their fall season as they finished in second at the Jim West Challenge this past weekend, posting three individual finishers among the tournament’s top ten.
Sophomore Emily Gilbreth topped her previous career-best finish of 12th as she finished in fourth place at the Jim West Challenge. Gilbreth ended the tournament with a score of 220 and never shot higher than 74 in each of the three rounds.
Junior Raegan Bremer and freshman Megan Thothong also aided in the Cougars’ second place finish, as they tied for seventh place individually with scores of 223. Bremer closed out the final round of the tournament with a 71, 1 shot under par, and earned her second top-10 finish in the last three tournaments.
Thothong shot the lowest score of the entire competition for the Cougars as she posted a 70 in the final round. Thothong put herself in good standing as she shot birdies on three of her final seven holes to come back from three bogeys.
The Cougars’ second place finish marks the best finish in team history, a strong closing to the fall season. The Cougars look to return to play at the Texas State Spring Challenge in February.
