Updated: November 1, 2010

The Husky women’s golf team saved their best for last, shooting a combined 2-under 286 during the final round of the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational to finish third behind dueling California and USC.

California entered the final round at Tacoma Country & Golf Club leading by seven strokes but had to hold off a hard-charging USC squad to win by two. The Golden Bears combined to shoot an impressive 8-under 280 at the Par 72, 6,078-yard track, but USC recorded a blistering 13-under 275 during final day action.

Washington’s “A” team had three golfers finish under par on to help the Huskies run away with third at their home tournament. Although the Huskies finished at +17 overall and were 28 strokes behind second-place USC, they were 17 strokes better than fourth-place Stanford and Pepperdine.
