Guce Takes Third, Matadors Finish Sixth at SCU Colby Classic

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Junior Clariss Guce posted her second top-five finish in three fall tournaments while the Cal State Northridge women's golf team finished sixth at the SCU Colby Classic at Silver Creek Valley C.C. on Tuesday.

Guce, who led the tournament by two shots following an opening round 70 on Monday, finished with a round of 76 on Tuesday and was overtaken by Ball State's Jenna Hague and IUPUI's Lauren Kass. Guce's two-round score of two over-par 146 was one shot out of second (Kass - 145) and four behind Hague who was the lone player to finish under par at two under 142.

Guce, who missed the entire 2011-12 season due to injury, now has a second and third place finish in three starts this fall.

Junior Remylee Molyneux narrowly missed her second top-20 finish this fall as her final round 75 moved her into a tie for 21st. Combined with her opening round 82, Molyneux finished at (+13) 157. Margo Dionisio and Stephanie Bush were the second and third CSUN players to post a final round score in the 70's after opening in the 80's. Dionisio finished 34th at (+17) 161 after rounds of 83-78 and Bush tied for 35th at (+18) 162 following rounds of 83-79.

Alana Loyd wrapped up the Matador five by finishing 61st at (+28) 172 after carding rounds of 87-85.

CSUN's two round score of 626 matches its season-low for 36 holes and the Matadors' second round 308 is a season-low for 18 holes.

Ball State won the team title by four shots over IUPUI and 10 over the host Broncos as 11 teams competed.

Cal State Northridge concludes the fall season Oct. 29-30 at the Lamkin Cup/Cal Poly Invitational at Cypress Ridge G.C. in Arroyo Grande.
