DOVE CANYON, Calif. - Cal State Northridge carded a final round 332 and slipped to 13th place at the conclusion of the Anteater Invitational at Dove Canyon C.C. Lady Samson and Katrina Sutton tied for 57th to lead the Matadors.

Northridge had its roughest tournament in four Spring outings as the Matadors posted rounds of 338-329-332 to finish 13th with a team score of 999.

Long Beach State (891) shot a tournament low 289 on the final round to capture the team title while UC Davis (903) was second and San Francisco (904) was third among the 14-team field.

"Two of our top scorers weren't able to play, so that hurt us," said head coach Bonnie Murphy. "It was a tough course and we certainly had a tough time keeping the ball in play. We'll just put this tournament behind us and try to get ready for confernce in two weeks."
