 OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City University took its first tournament title of the season in the Oklahoma Baptist Spring Invitational on Monday at the Lincoln Park East Course.

The Stars, ranked fourth in NAIA women’s golf, posted a 303-304-607 to win by six strokes. Caroline Goodin grabbed runner-up to lead three OCU individuals in the top five.

Goodin, a sophomore from Oklahoma City, carded a 74-73-147 to end four shots off the pace set by Anna Arrese Cortadellas of Oklahoma Christian. Goodin tied with Arrese Cortadellas for the tournament lead with six birdies on the par-71, 5,912-yard course.

"I’m very proud of the way the girls played this week," OCU coach Marty McCauley said. "All nine of them represented our university very well. They have been working extremely hard, and it’s nice to see them be rewarded for that."

Oklahoma City pulled away from a tie with Oklahoma Christian after the first round. Fifth-ranked Houston-Victoria finished third, while 24th-ranked Oklahoma Baptist came in fourth.

"Both Oklahoma Christian and Houston-Victoria have wonderful teams and it was fun to compete against them the past few days," McCauley said. "We will look forward to our conference championship in two weeks."

Emma Allen of the Stars finished third with a 75-75-150. Allen, a freshman from Tulsa,  sank four birdies during the tournament. OCU’s Raegan Barnes tied for fourth with a 75-76-151 playing unattached. Barnes, a sophomore from Choctaw, converted two birdies and made par 23 times to tie for the tournament lead.

Oklahoma City’s Kailey Campbell produced an eight-place 77-76-153. Campbell, a sophomore from Oktaha, buried two birdies and 22 pars. Anna Mikish finished knotted for ninth at 77-80-157 for the Stars. Mikish, a sophomore from Choctaw, had three birdies and 22 pars.

Katie-Lee Wilson supplied OCU with an 85-82-167. Stars playing as individuals were Abby Thompson, who tied for 12th with a 79-80-159; Claudia Chemin, who shot 81-83-164; and Taylor Cusack, who had an 82-87-169.

Conditions included 58-degree temperatures at the start of the day with temperatures rising to 70 by mid-day. Winds started at 15 mph, grew to 22 mph and gusted up to 28 mph.
The Stars take aim at their fourth consecutive conference championship in the Sooner Athletic Conference Championships on April 20-21 at Twin Hills Golf & Country Club in Oklahoma City.

Arrese Cortadellas will enter the Heartland Conference Championship on a serious roll.

Arrese Cortadellas finished off her third win in five events with a 3-over-par 75 at Lincoln Park Golf Club’s East Course to take top honors. Her two-round score of 143 was four shots better than runner-up Goodin of Oklahoma City University and helped lift the Lady Eagles to a second-place team finish.

Arrese Cortadellas now has finished in the top two individually in six straight tournaments, dating back to the National Christian College Athletic Association Championship last October in Panama City Beach, Fla. During the spring season, she won the Las Vegas Desert Classic at Paiute Golf Club, then took top honors in the Diffee Ford-Lincoln Invitational at Kickingbird Golf Course in Edmond.

The senior from Barcelona, Spain, entered the week ranked second in NCAA Division II in stroke average at 73.75, a number that will drop after her scores from her latest win are figured in.

OC’s other four starters all finished in the top 16 in the 55-woman field. Junior Audrey Meisch shot a 75 and tied for sixth at 152, while sophomore India Matthews shot a 78 and tied for ninth at 157.

Senior Catherine Odgers finished 15th at 161 after an 82 and sophomore Allison Sell was another shot back, tied for 16th after shooting an 82.

Four Lady Eagles played as individuals. Of that group, sophomore Dana Todd led the way, tying for 25th at 169 after a final-round 82. Sophomore Mindy Stafford tied for 33rd at 175, shooting a final-round 87. Freshman Chaise Lucero shot an 86 and tied for 39th at 177 while junior Alyssa Schneider shot an 89 and tied for 43rd at 180.

The Lady Eagles will take next week off before making their inaugural trip to the Heartland Conference Championship, which is set for April 20-21 at Apple Rock Golf Course in Horseshoe Bay, Texas.
