HENDERSON, Nev. - A pair of birdies on the back-nine of the final round pushed Emily Cornwall and the UBC Okangan Heat women's golf team to complementary podium finishes at the RMC Intercollegiate at Lake Las Vegas last week.

After a solid finish in Victoria a week prior, Cornwall, a Calgary native, continued her strong play with a tied for second place result. She wrote circles on her card on holes 12 and 14, holes which were playing a combined two-over par on average. She would get as close as one shot of the lead but would ultimately finish two back, coming in with a round of five over.

Her second-round 77, stood as the second-lowest score of the week as she led the field in par four and back-nine scoring.

Also breaking 80 in the tournament for UBCO was Hanna Chan whose final round 79 helped the Heat women claim a second-place finish.

For the men, Ethan Hunt was at the forefront of the charge with rounds of 74 and 75. His six birdies during the tournament helped him secure a tied for tenth place finish at five-over par.
