    Playing through damp conditions Sept. 20 and 21, sophomore Katie Kilborn and freshman Sophie Corr led the ÕCats to a third-place finish at the Pacific Invitational hosted at Quail Valley Golf Course.
    George Fox University held on for its second tournament win of the fall season. The Bruins improved  their first round score by six strokes and were unmatched on the day. Sophomore Brianna Nap finished with a team-best total of 169 strokes over
the weekend.
   George Fox, which finished just one stroke ahead of Linfield at the Willamette Five-Way Invitational the previous week, has proven itself to be a dominant force in the Northwest
Conference.
   Willamette University senior Whitney Ueno comfortably topped the competition with a final score of 154, eight strokes better than the runner-up.
   For the Cats, Kilborn and Corr tied for ninth overall, scoring 185 during two days of play.
   Also golfing for Linfield, junior Brittany Johnston finished with 186 strokes and freshman Lydia Sith
with 199.
The Cats host the Linfield Invitational on Sept. 27 and 28 at Michelbook
Country Club.
