Oster hits an ace


The hole-in-one is often unobtainable in many golfers’ careers. Many golfers spend their whole life to get that achievement. 

Idaho junior Kaitlyn Oster nailed a hole-in-one at the Price’s Give ‘Em Five Intercollegiate at New Mexico State. On hole 11, a par three, Oster hit a shot that found the bottom of the cup in one swing. When a golfer hits a hole-in-one it is known as an ace.

Oster enjoyed her best tournament of the season, coming in tied for fourth with a 1-under-par 215. Sophomore Cassie McKinley was next for the Vandals tied for 17th with a 6-over-par 222, followed by junior Leilanie Kim tied for 27th at 9-over-par 225, Amy Hasenoehrl tied for 45th with a 13-over-par 229, sophomore Kristin Strankman tied for 49th with a 14-over-par 230 and sophomore Kassidy Long-Goheen at 72nd with a 24-over-par 240.

As a team, the Vandals finished tied for fifth in the 14-team field at the tournament. Portland State won the tournament at 867 with a five-shot lead over second-place California-Irvine. Portland State’s A Ram Choi was the individual champion with an 8-under-par 208.

The Vandals will enjoy a break from tournament action as they don’t compete again until Oct. 27 when they travel to Las Vegas, Nev., for the Las Vegas Colligate Showdown.
