The No. 23 Arizona women's golf team ended the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Seattle yesterday in fifth place.

The Wildcats improved 12 strokes from their second-round 314, but couldn't rise a spot in the team standings at the Sahalee Country Club.

Pepperdine improved 17 strokes to score a 4-over-par 290, edging ASU to win its second straight tournament.

Freshman Amanda Wilson carded a 4-over 76 to finish highest among Wildcat individuals. She tied for 15th place with Sun Devils Alissa Kuczka and Tiffany Tavee.

Redshirt senior Lani Elston-Marshall split her scores from the two rounds with a 77 yesterday. She ended in a tie for 23rd place with Long Beach State's Kay Hoey and Beth Holtermann.

Senior Cassandra Kirkland followed a second-round 90 with a 76 in the final round, finishing in 63rd place.

Arizona returns to action Oct. 21-23 for the Stanford-Pepsi Women's Intercollegiate in Palo Alto, Calif.
