No. 15 Pepperdine Wins 13th Consecutive West Coast Conference Women's Golf Championship

April 16, 2014


BREMERTON, Wash. - Cold and soggy conditions did little to deter No. 15 Pepperdine as it marched to its 13th consecutive West Coast Conference Women's Golf Championship Wednesday at the Gold Mountain Golf Club. The Waves posted a 17-shot lead and never trailed, nor did Gonzaga's Alice Kim, who fired an even-par 216 for individual medalist honors.

Kim posted a three-stroke lead over Pepperdine teammates Liv Cheng (70, 75, 74) and Marissa Chow (74, 72, 73) and BYU's Alex White (70, 77, 72) in second at 3-over 219. Four Waves finished in the top-seven.

Pepperdine's Grace Na collected her record fourth WCC Player of the Year honor. The All-American shared fifth place at 4-over with BYU's Lea Garner. Santa Clara's Annie Freman captured Freshman of the Year honors after finishing 10th at 12-over.

Gonzaga head coach Brad Rickel earned WCC Coach of the Year for the third straight year and fourth overall.
