DAVIS, Calif. - After winning its first team and individual championships of the 2017-18 season at the Battle at the Rock, UC Davis will head to Peoria, Ariz., for its next spring tournament as one of 15 teams competing at the Westbrook Spring Invitational, hosted by Wisconsin.

This two-day event will begin on Sunday, Feb. 25, with 36 holes played in a shotgun format at the par 72, 6,252-yard Westbrook Village Golf Club Vistas Course. The final 18 holes will take place on Monday, Feb. 26, with pairings determined by score. The low four individual scores will determine the team score for each round.

Once UC Davis returns home from Arizona, it will have less than a week to prepare for its next tournament, the Meadow Club Women's Collegiate hosted by San Francisco and San José State, which begins on March 5.

The Aggies will enter the Westbrook Spring Invitational off their best performance of the season after all five student-athletes recorded top-25 individual scores. Junior sociology major Samantha Hutchison led this contingent by finishing with a tournament low 5-under individual result.

By shooting 69 in the Battle at the Rock's opening round, Hutchison matched sophomore managerial economics major Christine Danielsson's second round score at the Branch Law Firm-Dick McGuire Invite for the lowest individual round of the season.

Also posting her lowest score of the year at the Battle at the Rock was freshman psychology major Hannah Sun, who shot a 1-under 71 in the first round.

The Westbrook Spring Invitational will feature a handful of opponents the Aggies, ranked No. 85 in Golfstat's latest national listing, are familiar with since they competed at the East-West Match Play earlier this year, also hosted by Wisconsin (No. 30). These teams include the Badgers, Nebraska (No. 119), Ohio State (No. 63), Oregon (No. 68) and Oregon State (No. 77).

In that match play tournament, UC Davis defeated Nebraska and faced the Beavers throughout its stay in Madison, Wisc.

Completing this weekend's field are Delaware (No. 101), Notre Dame (No. 39), Washington State (No. 69), additional Big Ten schools in Illinois (No. 15), Indiana (No. 73), Iowa (No. 87), and a trio of schools representing the Big XII: Kansas (No. 83), Kansas State (No. 51) and Oklahoma (No. 17).

Providing a small-town community feel while providing a world-class academic experience, UC Davis is home to more than 37,000 students and centrally located between San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and the Napa Valley.

The No. 6-ranked public university in the nation, according to the Wall Street Journal, offers nearly 100 graduate programs and more than 100 academic majors across four colleges and six professional schools, ranking among the world and nation's best in numerous disciplines, including veterinary science, agriculture, and plant and animal programs.
