Street ready for WAC golf tourney

The Mirror

Boise State University's Katie Street, a sophomore from Federal Way who already has made a name for herself in women's golf in the Western Athletic Conference, will try to make it bigger in the WAC Championship next week.

The tournament will be hosted by the Broncos at Falcon Crest Golf Course in Boise.

Street tied for 23rd place in last year's conference tourney.

Street was selected as the WAC Golfer of the Week for March 7-13. The honor was based on her second-place finish at the Bobcat Desert Classic in Goodyear, Ariz. She fired rounds of 72-72-76 for a four-over-par 220, helping her team shoot a school-record 54-hole score of 903. The previous mark was 904, set last October at a tournament in Hawaii.

More recently, Street tied for 32nd place with an 81-83-164 as Boise State finished eighth in the Utah-Dixie Classic in St. George, Utah this month. Teammate Jenny Judd was fourth, four strokes behind individual champion Rachel Newren of BYU.

Street, who graduated from Decatur High School, made a dramatic impact in competition last fall. She played in all five tournaments Boise State entered, finished in the top 25 in four of them (including a 15th-place showing in the Ptarmigan Classic that included a career-best single round of 71), and posted a 76.3 stroke average that was four strokes lower than her average as a freshman.

At Decatur, Street finished in the top 10 three times in the state 4A high school girls' golf tourney. She also played on the Gators' softball team.
