Trailing by two strokes after Monday, the Cal Poly women’s golf team shot a tournament-best 295 Tuesday to edge runner-up and host Cal State Northridge by seven in the nine-team Matador Spring Invitational at the Tierra Rejada Golf Course in Moorpark.

The Mustangs finished with a 36-hole, 607 total on the 6,018-yard, par-72 layout to capture their 10th tournament championship in the eight-year history of the program, and their second this season.

Earning top individual honors was Cal Poly junior Hannah Brabb, who carded a two-under-par 70 Tuesday for a one-over-par 145 total, three strokes better than UC Riverside junior Jennifer Bermingham.

Mustangs sophomore Julia Heath came in seventh with a 73 for a 152 total, while sophomore Stephanie Yocum’s final-round 81 and 157 total were good enough for a 14th-place tie.

Sophomore Maddy Fletcher, whose final-round 77 and 159 total left her in a 19th-place draw, and fellow sophomore Miquela Pendleton, who came in 23rd with a final round of 75 and a total of 162, completed Cal Poly’s scoring.

Cal State Northridge shot a final-round 300 for a 614 total, followed by UC Riverside’s final-round 309 and 621 total.

Cal Poly will travel next to the Big West Conference Championships, held April 21-22 at the Tijeras Creek Golf Course in Rancho Santa Margarita.
