Cal golf’s win streak ends 

MENIFEE – No. 16 California saw its tournament win streak end at two with its seventh-place finish at the Pioneer Electronics Bruin Classic, which concluded Tuesday at Menifee Lakes Country Club. The Golden Bears fired a final round of 310 to finish the 54-hole tournament with a 917.  

Pepperdine won the 16-tournament with a score of 876, including a tournament low of 284 in the final round. The Wave's Katherine Hull, the defending champion, won by seven strokes with a nine-under 207, highlighted by a course record round of 64 over the final 18.  

Host UCLA posted a 901 (299, 297, 305) for runner-up honors, while New Mexico (305, 301, 302) and Oklahoma (303, 295, 310) tied for third with 908, three strokes in front of San Francisco to round out the top-five in the elite field.  

Sophomores Sarah Huarte and Anna Temple led the Bears, tying for 10th with scores of 225. Huarte led Cal with a 73 in the final round. Unfortunately for Cal, Temple's scores didn't count towards the team score as she was competing as an individual.
