The No. 3 Huskies scored their first run against UC Davis after just three batters and never looked back Sunday.
The Huskies had 19 hits en route to a 16-2 defeat of the Aggies, and a 5-0 record at the UNLV Sportco Kick-Off Classic in Las Vegas this weekend.
The Huskies opened the tournament Friday with a 7-4 win over Baylor and a 3-0 shutout against the University of San Diego. On Saturday, the Huskies defeated Arkansas, 6-1, and beat host UNLV, 7-1.
“It was really good for this team to get out on the field and compete as one,” coach Heather Tarr said. “It was a really good weekend to get everybody in sync, understanding their roles, and off to a good start.”
The Huskies’ 16 runs were the most they have scored since March 8, 2013, when they defeated Ohio, 17-1.
The fourth-ranked Washington women’s golf team got off to a solid start at the Northrop Grumman Challenge in Palos Verdes, Calif., finishing the opening round at 8-over 282 in a tie for fifth. Playing against a loaded field that includes seven top-10 teams, the Huskies are six shots off the lead.
Unranked Baylor is the surprising first-round leader at 286, two strokes better than top-ranked USC and four better than No. 2 UCLA and No. 3 Duke. The fourth-ranked Huskies sit in a three-way tie for fifth with No. 5 Oklahoma and No. 13 Arizona.
Washington was led by Jennifer Yang, who shot a round of even-par 71, tied for sixth, four strokes back of opening-round leader, Annie Park of USC.
“I am proud of how we rallied to save some shots at the finish,” UW coach Mary Lou Mulflur. “A couple of big numbers on some holes was essentially the difference from being even or 1 over to the 8 over we ended up.”
