A record performance yesterday lifted the Ohio State women’s golf team to its first tournament title since 2012.
The Buckeyes finished with a total of 26-under-par 838 to shatter the school record for 54 holes and freshman Jessica Porvasnik won the individual title at the Westbrook Spring Invitational in Peoria, Ariz.
It was the Buckeyes’ first tournament victory since the 2012 Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational. Their total broke the school 54-hole record of 8-under 856 set at the 2005 NCAA East Regional. The Buckeyes finished 10 strokes better than runner-up Oregon and 21 strokes better than third-place Wisconsin, the tournament host.
Porvasnik led after 36 holes with a total of 12-under 132 and shot a 71 yesterday for a 13-under 203 total. Her teammate, Zoe-Beth Brake, tied for second at 9 under with Oregon’s Cassy Isagawa and Cathleen Santoso.
Two other Buckeyes finished in the top 10: Allison Harper of Upper Arlington (fifth, 5 under); and Katja Pogacar (10th, 2 under).
