Kansas’ Rose wins title

April 17, 2002


— Kansas University's Heather Rose won the individual title, but the Jayhawks finished seventh in the team race Tuesday at the Waterwood National Spring Invitational.

Rose won the title with a victory in a two-hole, sudden-death playoff.

"Today was a very difficult day for everyone," KU coach Nicole Hollingsworth said. "Overall, we played OK, and I am very excited for Heather winning a two-hole championship. She played phenomenal today."

Rose shot a 78 on Tuesday on the 5,983-yard, par-72 Waterwood National Golf Club course and a 235 for the three rounds.

"The course played really hard today," Rose said. "I am pleased with my shots. I was really nervous during the playoff, but I felt very confident and it worked out for me."

Also on Tuesday, two KU golfers were named to the Academic All-Big 12 teams. Jennifer Bawanan was named to the first team and junior Tiffany Kruggel was named to the second team.
