    VALENCIA, Calif.—Junior Jenny Coleman finished tied for third and the University of Colorado women’s golf program finished in ninth place here Wednesday at the 2013 Pac-12 Championships. The Buffs shot a final round 17-over par 305 to finish at 5-over par 914.

    Coleman’s third place finish is the best individual postseason finish in program history, bettering fourth place finishes by both Sarah Bellinger (1999) and Jess Wallace (2011) at the Big 12 Championships. After the conclusion of the third round, Coleman was also named to the honorable mention All-Pac-12 team, becoming the fourth different golfer honored on the team in the Buffs two-year history in the league.

    No. 1 Southern California won the Pac-12 Championship by 24 strokes with a 54-hole score of 11-under par 853 on the 6,300-yard, par 72 Valencia Country Club course. No. 11 Washington (13-over par 877) edged out No. 10 and host UCLA (15-over par 879) for second place while No. 5 Arizona and No. 12 Stanford tied for fourth at 18-over par 882. In all, the Pac-12 features six teams ranked in the top 15 of the latest Golfstat rankings.

    Coleman shot a final round even par 72 to finish the event at 3-under par 213, another CU postseason record, breaking Wallace’s 1-under par 215 at the 2011 Big 12 Championships. Starting on No. 10, she was 1-under on the course’s back nine and after a birdie on No. 1 making the turn, she was tied for the lead. She had a stretch of three straight bogeys but responded with a birdie on No. 5 to get back to even par. She bogeyed her second to last hole only to birdie the last hole to remain at even par and finish third.

    Freshman Jamie Oleksiew shot a final round 4-over par 76 and finished tied for 43rd with a 17-over par score of 233. She had a solid round underway after opening with three birdies on her first four holes and finishing her front nine at 2-under par. She then had three double bogeys in the span of five holes before ending her round with a birdie on No. 9 to finish with a 76.

    Freshman Allie Zech finished tied for 39th after a final round 6-over par 78 put her at 15-over par 231 through three rounds. She had nearly identical front and back nine scores, as on each side she shot 3-over par with three bogeys in the span of four holes.

    Freshman Alexis Keating finished the final round at 7-over par 79 to finish 23-over par 239 to finish 48th while junior Kristin Coleman finished tied for 51st at 30-over par 246. Keating was 2-over through 10 holes before a double bogey on No. 2 put her at 4-over, where she remained until a bogey and double in the final three holes left her with a 79. Kristin Coleman shot 5-over on both the front and back for her 82.

    Southern California’s Annie Park took medalist honors after shooting 3-under par, the best final round in the field, and finish at 7-under par 209. Her teammate, Sophia Popov, finished second two strokes back at 5-under par 211. Jenny Coleman and Stanford’s Mariah Stackhouse finished tied for third at 3-under par 213 while Arizona State’s Laura Blanco rounded out the top five at 2-under par 214.

    The Buffs will now await their postseason fate with the 2013 NCAA Women’s Golf Selection Show, which will take place Monday, April 29 at 9 p.m. ET. A total of 72 teams are selected for the championships. Should the Buffs not be selected, Jenny Coleman could be selected as an individual competitor, one of 18 that are selected.

    Congrats, Jenny!

    As a senior next year, she'll be leading a squad that has to be looking at making the NCAAs again.
