SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Santa Clara University women's golfer, Jennifer Sun finished in second place at the Santa Cruz City Amateur this past weekend. Sun finished the tournament, which was hosted at the DeLaveaga Golf Club, with scores of 78 and 74.

"I am very proud of the way Jenn stay composed when she faced some difficulties," said head coach Polly Schulze. "She is definitely ready to start the fall season.

The Santa Clara senior played strong throughout the tournament, especially in the first nine holes. She did have some trouble at points, but was able to bounce back to birdie on her last hole to beat Bryana Gregory of UC Davis by one shot, to earn a second place finish.

"I had some difficulties at points in the tournament, but was able to fight my way through it," Sun said. "Participating in this tournament makes me more confident going into this season, and I know that Corey (Utsurogi) and Erin (Sullivan) won their tournaments too. Overall I think that we all are getting good practice to be successful this season."
