LAHAINA, Hawaii — Sophomore sensation Betty Chen continued a breakout season this week as she finished second individually to help the 37th-ranked UC Davis women’s golf team take third place at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic on Maui, which concluded Wednesday.

Chen shot a 1-under 71 in the final round as the Aggies fired an 8-under 296 for the second straight day. Their three-day total of 26-over gave them their third top-three finish in four spring tournaments.

In addition to Chen, who was in the top 10 for the third time this spring, another young gun, UCD freshman Paige Lee continued to impress, taking sixth place. For Lee, who was even on Wednesday, it was her second-straight top-10 finish and her fourth of the year.

As for the rest of the Aggies, Beverly Vatananugulkit shot a 77 in the final round and tied for 29th at 13-over, Andrea Wong was 15-over and tied for 37th after her round of 76, and Blair Lewis shot 79 to tie for 65th at 22-over.

Chen shot in the red for the second time this week, picking up two birdies on each side of The Bay Course. She birdied the par-4 second and ninth holes, then did the same on the par-5 10th and 18th holes to help her cause.

Lee’s round, her best of the tournament, was fueled by four birdies of her own.

No. 15 Pepperdine won the 15-team event at a 6-over and was led by Grace Na, who successful defended her Anuenue title by shooting a tourney-record 11-under 205.

UCD, meanwhile, is back in action early next month at the PING/ASU Invitational in Tempe, Ariz.
