With a one-shot lead going into the third and final round of the Rainbow Wahine Golf Tournament last Thursday, Arizona's Krissy Register shot a 74 to capture the first tournament win of her career.

In taking her first title, the freshman from Roswell, Georgia helped the No. 5-ranked Wildcats to their second title of the year.

Arizona shot a combined 887, beating the Brigham Young Cougars (913) by 26 strokes. Texas Tech finished at 916, Oklahoma State came in fourth at 919, and the Georgia Bulldogs shot a combined 936 to round out the top five.

Prior to the Wahine tournament, Register had been playing extremely well for the Wildcats, finishing in the top 10 in three of the last four tournaments. Her highest finish to date had been a fourth place at the Fairfield Invitational two weeks ago.

Sophomore Heather Graff and freshman Maria Baena also had good outings. Graff shot a combined 222 to tie for second, while Baena, who is currently ranked fourth in the nation individually, tied for third at 223.

Senior Jeanne Anne Krizman shot a 230 for 13th place, and Christina Tolerton finished 22nd to round out Arizona's roster.

The Wildcats will compete next in the Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio, April 4-6.
