Oregon State senior Ellie Slama came out on top at the Silverado Showdown on April 7, winning an event for the third time in her college career.
Slama put together rounds of 67-68-73 at Silverado Resort in Napa, California, for an 8-under total that was one better than Allisen Corpuz of USC. With Slama in the lead, Oregon State finished third as a team.
“Ellie was incredible this week,” head coach Dawn Shockley said in a school release. “She has worked very hard and continues to prove she is one of the best in the country. This was a very good field and doing what she did is not easy. Leading the tournament from day one and finishing it off is remarkable.
“She played with two of the best in the country today and she stuck to her game, trusted herself and got it done. A wire-to-wire finish. She deserves this win and I couldn’t be more proud of what she has accomplished.”
