The Saddleback women's golf team is closing in on a third straight Orange Empire Conference title after winning on Wednesday at Tustin Ranch Golf Club. The Gauchos are now 19-1 in OEC play with three rounds remaining.
Saddleback edged closer to a third straight crown and now has a 5-game lead on second place Mt. San Antonio College. The Gauchos were 38 strokes better than Mt. SAC on Wednesday on a day when the 6,064-yard layout was playing tough.
Brittney Do led Saddleback with a 5-over-par round of 77. She finished in a tie for medalist honors with Fullerton's Eunsoo Jeon and gained five shots on Irvine Valley's Katie Stribling, who came into the match leading the conference in stroke average.
Do shot 5-over (41) on the front nine before shooting even par (36) on the back. Her back nine featured an eagle at the 10th hole and a birdie at the 13th.
