MADISON, Wisc. - One day after defeating Nebraska, UC Davis returned to the University Ridge Golf Course, in Madison, Wisc., on Tuesday to face Oregon State in the final day of action at the East-West Match Play.

Up-1 with two holes remaining in her individual matchup with Susie Cavanagh, Yoonhee Kim won the 17th hole to defeat her Pac-12 foe 2&1. Also collecting an individual victory, in near wire-to-wire fashion for the Aggies was Samantha Hutchison.

After matching Haley Nist’s score on the first hole played, Hutchison won the second hole and quickly pulled away shortly thereafter, leading by as many as six holes before posting a 4&3 victory.

The Aggies will now enjoy one-week hiatus before returning to action when they head to Highland Park, Ill., to participate at the Windy City Collegiate Classic, hosted by Northwestern.
