Mira Yoo Shoots Even-Par 72 as CMS Women's Golf Finishes Second at SCIAC No. 1

Mira Yoo putts on the 9th hole of SCIAC Tournament No. 1

CLAREMONT, Calif. - Junior Mira Yoo shot an even-par 72 on Sunday's second round of the first SCIAC regular season tournament, but Claremont-Mudd-Scripps ended up finishing second to a hot-shooting Redlands team in the first league event of the 2020 season.

Redlands shot a 293 on Sunday to finish with a two-day 596, defeating the Athenas by 15 strokes, led by Hannah Jugar, who shot -6 with two straight 69s on Saturday and Sunday. CMS improved from a 310 on Saturday to a 301 on Sunday, and ended up pulling away from Pomona-Pitzer (631) in third place by 20 strokes. 

Yoo had a stellar front nine, taking the turn with a 34 (-2) after a birdie on eight and an up-and-down par save on the ninth from in front of the green. She ended up the low round of the weekend for CMS by reaching the clubhouse with a par score. 

Yoo was nine shots better than her score on Saturday, and wasn't the only Athena to improve her score on Sunday, as senior Emma Kang had a 75 to shoot eight strokes better.  First-year Grace Lu ended up with the top score for CMS with a 75-77-152 (+8) to come in sixth place on the individual leaderboard.

First-year Noelle Song had a consistent two days with a 78-77-155, while junior Emily Attiyeh was one stroke behind with a 78-78-156. 

CMS will be back in action in March for two out-of-state tournaments, heading to Phoenix, Arizona for the George Fox Invitational on March 14-15, and to Jekyll Island, Georgia for the Collegiate Invitational from March 20-22.
