On March 10-11 the Eagles hosted the Biola Invitational against seven teams at the Grand Country Club in San Diego. Redshirt junior Sami Penor performed at a high-caliber level, shooting 75-74-149. 


Penor was an instrumental player for Biola this weekend. She led the Eagles with an impressive long tee shot on hole eight. Stuck in a fairway bunker 140 yards out from the hole, Penor lifted it neatly off of the sand where it proceeded to roll onto the green and straight into the hole. She finished the tournament fifth out of 44.

Aiding Penor’s efforts to lower the team’s scores, sophomore Brady Turnquist played strong both days earning 78-78-156 overall and nabbing a 10th place standing. 


The rest of the team played substantially, creating a solid foundation for Biola’s standing. Biola earned third place overall with an impressive score of 313-311-624.

 Freshman Lauren Lee had 10 strokes over the course of the tournament, earning an overall score of 87-77-164 and tied for 21st place. Her efforts were supported by sophomore Mary Grace Davidson who also placed 21st overall with a score of 82-82-164. 

Women’s golf will return to the course on March 21 for a two-day tournament at Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach, California. Stats from today’s tournament are located on the Biola Athletics website.
