Park and Ras-Anderica Wrap-Up Post-Season

Park and Ras-Anderica Wrap-Up Post-Season

May 12, 2012

Final Results

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – A hard fought final round at the NCAA Central Regional concluded with two individuals and eight teams advancing to the NCAA Nationals. Freshman Leticia Ras-Anderica made a late surge, but wasn’t enough as the 2011-12 post-season ended for the Hurricanes.

Down one-stroke on the final hole, Ras-Anderica (80-73-77–230) sank a birdie putt that would tie her with (and put the pressure on) East Tenn. State’s Gabriella Wahl (79-77-73–229). However, Wahl answered with a birdie of her own to punch her ticket in to the next round.

“I definitely learned a lot this year,” said Ras-Anderica. “Every tournament was a great experience for me, and I feel very confident for next season.”

Ras-Anderica’s counterpart, Rika Park, ended her first post-season tallying 79-80-82–241 for the tourney.

“I found my weaknesses and what I need to work on,” said Park. “I will improve on them this summer and definitely be ready for next season.”

No surprise that the two freshmen Canes who earned a selection into the NCAA Regionals were from head coach Patti Rizzo’s first recruiting class.

“Both Park and Ras-Anderica are going to be leaders next season,” said Rizzo. “And I told the girls to use this experience to help the incoming freshman this fall.”

Another stellar recruiting class will be joining the Canes this coming fall including Laura Hendee, Christina Ocampo and Lauren Riehle, all of which have signed national letters of intent.

Overall, the eight schools moving on to the NCAA Division I National Championships will be the USC Trojans (first, 298-290-286–874) who won the Central Regional after posting a two-under 286 in the final round. Followed by Vanderbilt (second, 308-292-299–899), Purdue (third, 301-307-294–902), Tennessee (fourth, 306-308-290–904), Virginia (fifth, 308-296-301–905), Ohio State (sixth, 310-302-296–908), NC State (seventh, 307-304-300–911) and Arkansas (eighth, 310-308-295–913).
