St. Catherine’s High School graduate Sarah Busey helped the Santa Clara University women’s golf team finish third Tuesday at the Battle at the Rock Tournament at Riverside, Calif.
Busey, a sophomore, shot a collegiate-best 54-hole total of 218 (76-70-72) and tied with four other players for fifth place, matching her best college tournament finish. Her teammates Marni Murez (tied for 15th, 221) and Claire Choi (tied for 18th, 222) also finished in the top 20.
The Broncos shot a final-round 293, their best round of the three-day tournament, but came up just short. They totaled 883, two shots behind winner Grand Canyon and one shot behind runner-up Cal Poly.
