June 29, 2017
DUPONT, Wash. - Gonzaga women’s golf assistant coach and former standout Victoria Fallgren won the Washington State Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship on Thursday with a final round of 75 at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash., south of Tacoma.
She finished the tournament two-over par (218) after shooting a three-under 69 on the second day and a 74 on the first day, to beat Shawn Farmer of Renton, Wash. by nine strokes. Fallgren shot the lowest score in the field on all three days. The course was playing at 5818 yards and par-72.
On the first day she birdied 17 to finish +2. In her round of 69 she exploded on the back nine with birdies on 10, 11, 13, and 16, to go with one on hole five, for the three-under score. Thursday she birdied two, three, and seven to shoot a 34 on the front, and held on for a 75 to easily win the title. Fallgren finished the event with nine birdies and 35 pars, going three-under on the par-five holes. She finished fourth in the amateur competition last season.
She just completed her fourth season as an assistant at GU after a stellar career where she became the first Bulldog to win the West Coast Conference title in 2012 and led the Zags to four team tournament wins as a senior in 2012-13. Individually, the Lakewood, Calif., native tallied two tournament wins, 10 top-5 finishes, and 18 top-10s throughout her four years. She has also qualifed for the US Women's Amateur Public Links Championship three times and the US Amateur twice. She advanced to match play in the 2010 and 2012 Public Links Championships. The mid-amateur ranks are for those amateurs competing who are 25 or older.
