SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara women's golf will spend part of its spring break in Maui competing in the 13-team Anuenue Spring Break Classic, which opens play Monday at the 6,022-yard, par-72 Kapalua Bay Course. The field will play a single 18-hole round over three days.
"We are so excited to be here," head coach Krystal Kelly said. "It's beautiful. I think everyone is excited to play at Kapalua, It's a good golf course and we know it well."
The Broncos are coming off a ninth-place finish at the BYU Entrada Classic two weeks ago in what was the most difficult field they played in this season. Freshman Emily Sumner led the way with a 23rd-place finish on the individual leaderboard. Sumner carded a career-low score of 71 in the final round of that event.
Senior Kristin Le has played every round this season and leads the team with a 74.70 stroke average. Sumner and Le will be joined by senior Kyleigh Moreno, sophomore Chloe Wong and freshman Sarah Busey to form the Broncos team. Click here to view 2017-18 Santa Clara team and individual stats.
