The Eagles excelled in the PacWest Championship at Litchfield Park, Arizona over the past few days. The team ended the three-day tournament in second place right behind the Academy of Art, shooting 305 collectively. Four Eagles earned spots on the All-Tournament Team.

Biola’s second place on the scoreboard is an improvement from last season’s NCAA National Championship. The Eagles finished 36 strokes better than their 2018 score.

Freshman Sami Penor shot 76 in the third round, placing fourth and granting her a score of 223 overall. Her best score of the season was good enough to be Biola’s top finisher of the tournament.

Sophomore Marcel Manalo shot three birdies resulting in a 72 on Wednesday, her best single round score of her collegiate career. Junior Jules Loibl ended the tournament with a score of 228 after all three rounds, earning her a top-10 finish. Junior Alexis Gopfert placed in ninth, earning her second straight All-Tournament team honor.

The Eagles will return to action on the green next season.
