Isagawa second-team All-Pac-12, Ducks make NCAA regional field

April 29, 2014 - Robert Collias
The University of Oregon's Cassy Isagawa, a 2011 Baldwin graduate, finished 25th in the Pac-12 Conference tournament over the weekend and was named second-team All-Pac-12, her third straight league honor.

She currently has a 72.5-stroke average, which would break her own school record. She owns the top-two season scoring averages in school history already.

The 30th-ranked Ducks are the 11th seed in the NCAA West Region in a field announced Monday — the Ducks will make their seventh straight appearance in the regionals. They made the 24-team NCAA championship field last season.

I recently talked to Oregon Daily Emerald reporter Josh Schlichter for his feature on Isagawa — yeah, that's me quoted in the story.

Isagawa is clearly the best to ever play for eight-time defending MIL champion Baldwin, as I said in Schlichter's piece, and arguably the best ever from Maui.

I was sports editor for the ODE in 1985-86 and was flattered to be asked by a current UO student about one of Maui's own.

Isagawa, a junior, has big plans.

“Graduating will be my first goal, but my second goal is to turn professional and hopefully make it on the LPGA tour,” Isagawa told Schlichter. “Even if I don’t make it, it’s going to help me learn and grow and become a better golfer and a better person.”
