March 25, 2019 (Rancho Santa Fe) - The San Diego State women's golf team finished in third place during the medal round at the Lamkin Invitational on Monday, firing a collective 13-over-par 301 at The Farms Golf Club. With their total, the Aztecs secured a berth in the championship bracket of match play, advancing in the draw with a 5-0 triumph over UC Irvine in their first-round duel later in the afternoon.

Fresh off her victory at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational, Gioia Carpinelli (Bopplesen, Switzerland) continued her strong spring campaign, leading all 64 golfers in the medal round with a 2-under-par 70.

With her total, the SDSU sophomore was the only player to post a red figure in the round, finishing two shots in front of Pepperdine’s Momoka Kabori and Hannah Haythorne, as well as San José State’s Andrea Oon and Abegail Arevalo, who all tied for second at even-par 72.

In addition, junior Fernanda Escauriza (Asunción, Paraguay) landed in the seventh spot with a 2-over 74, three strokes in front of freshman April Ranches (San Diego, Calif.), who tied for 15th at 5-over 77, while senior Kitty Tam (Hong Kong, China) wound up in the 31st position after carding an 8-over 80.

Rounding out the Aztec contingent was sophomore Sara Kjellker (Hollviken, Sweden), who fired an uncharacteristic 11-over 83 to tie for 47th, while senior Daniela Anastasi (La Jolla, Calif.) (+7) and freshman Tatum Mahon (San Diego, Calif.) (+23) competed as individuals.

After completing a third-place standing, SDSU squared off against UC Irvine in their first match of tournament, winning all five individual encounters.

Tam was the Aztecs’ biggest winner of the round, wasting no time in dispatching Cameron Lee by a count of 8&6, while Escauriza took care of business as well with a 4&3 conquest of Maddie Riggs.

SDSU’s final three participants posted come-from-behind wins, including Carpinelli, who slipped past Sabrina Li, 3&1, while Ranches and Kjellker outlasted their respective Anteater opponents, Janet Yeo and Sienna Lyford, by narrow 1-up margins.

San Diego State will square off against California in the second round of the championship bracket on Tuesday, beginning with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. on holes 4-6.
