Portland State Women’s Golf will take part in its first full-field tournament of the spring next week when it competes in the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Maui.
The Vikings have just one dual match behind them in this abbreviated spring season, so the Anuenue Spring Break Classic will be a big step forward as they get ready for a busy month of April.
A small field will take part in the event at Ka’anapali Golf Resort including host Hawai’i, UC Davis, Hawai’i Hilo and Hawai’i Pacific. Tee times begin each day at 8 a.m. HT.
Seniors Jasmine Cabajar and Valerie Hernandez will lead the Vikings in the event. A native of Hawai’i, Cabajar will have a chance to play collegiately in her home state for the first time since her freshman season. She posted a 74-77=151 in the season-opening event against George Fox a little more than a week ago.
Hernandez was the individual winner in the George Fox Dual, shooting 77-71=148. She also comes off a 2019-20 season in which she was the team scoring leader with a 74.17 average.
Joining the starting lineup with be redshirt freshman Katie Harris and true freshman Franca Polla. Junior McKenna Maser will also start for the Vikings. True freshman Mariana Garcia Rosette will travel and compete as an individual for PSU.
