NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma State’s women’s golf team rolled to a 9.5-2.5 victory over Oklahoma on Saturday in Bedlam Cup action at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club.
“We just keep learning every day. Even from the morning to the afternoon. I hope they took a little bit away from the morning and used it in the afternoon. They did a great job and kept fighting to the end, every one of them,” OSU head coach Courtney Jones said.
“It has been really special. This is our third time in the last four years to do (Bedlam Cup) and something we want to keep trying to do. It is pride and wanting to be the best in the state. I am so proud of the girls. It was a lot of fun.”
The Cowgirls opened up a large lead during the morning’s singles play, claiming five of the six matches.
Sophomore Isabella Deilert led OSU off with a 6-and-5 win over Rylee Pedigo before the Sooners evened the match with a 5-and-4 win from Valerie Tanguay over freshman Alexis Sadeghy.
However, the Cowgirls reeled off victories in the final four matches of the session to take command.
Freshman Emma Broze posted a 1-up win over Ana Ruiz, while sophomore Linnea Johansson got on the board with a 2-and-1 victory over Alexandra Kaui.
Freshman Kenzie Neisen rolled to a 6-and-5 triumph over Maggie Neece and classmate Maddie McCrary added a point for OSU, winning 3 and 2 over Hannah Wood.
During the afternoon session, Sadeghy got on the board with a 1-up win over Neece, while Deilert once again rolled in her match, winning 8 and 6 over Kaui.
“I started off with a focus on winning every hole. I was just determined to win and it worked out well. I need to bring this to stroke play too,” Deilert said. “It was Bedlam and that is important.”
Broze cruised to a 5-and-4 victory over Pedigo and Johansson added a 1-up victory over Wood.
Neisen earned a half point after halving her match with Ruiz, while McCrary closed out the scoring with a 2-and-1 win over Tanguay.
The Cowgirls will be back in action on April 10 when they begin play at the SMU/DAC Invitational.
