Cal Poly freshman Elizabeth Scholtes was the lone Mustang to finish in the Top 30 at the Bruin-Wave Invitational co-hosted by UCLA and Pepperdine at the San Luis Obispo Country Club.

In a tie for 14th place after the suspended second round was completed Tuesday morning, Scholtes followed her back-to-back 75s with an 80 and finished in a tie for 29th place with a 14-over-par 230 total.

Competing against 10 teams ranked in the Top 5, including five in the Top 20, Cal Poly finished 11th in the 15-team field with a 932 aggregate, carding a 307 Monday morning, 306 in the second round and 319 in Tuesday’s final round.

Stanford overtook Oregon for the team title. The Cardinal trailed the Ducks by four strokes entering the final round and posted a four-person 296 total Tuesday for a three-stroke victory. Oregon carded a 303.

Arizona State posted an 899 total for third place, followed by UCLA (903) and Northwestern (905).

Starting in fourth place for the final round, Olivia Mehaffey of Arizona State claimed top individual honors with a final-round 73 for a four-over-par 220 total, one stroke ahead of Petra Salko of Oregon.

Five golfers shared third place while second-round leader Kathleen Scavo of Oregon posted an 81 and finished in a tie for eighth place.
