A final round of even par 71 by Kelowna’s Megan Osland helped the San Jose State University Spartans to third-place showing out of 12 teams at the Peg Barnard Invitational Golf Tournament in Stanford, CA.

Coupled with a first-round 72, Osland’s performance last weekend was good enough for a ninth-place showing overall out of 62 players.

It was Osland’s second top-10 effort at an NCAA Div. 1 tourney in her senior year at SJSU.

A strong start to the spring season came for the KSS grad despite not being able to practise between Monday and Thursday before the tournament.

Osland was one of 35 students chosen from her Recreation Management program to get on-course training at the PGA’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Event, Feb. 12 to 15.

“It was a great experience to see how they set up a world class golf event,” Osland said.

Megan and Spartans her teammates will prepare for the Juli Inkster Invitational which they are hosting at the Almaden Golf and Country Club, Feb. 23 and 24 in San Jose.
