Coca-Cola Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Week: Sophie Bergland

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Junior Sophie Bergland, who earned her first collegiate tournament victory last week at the Bobcat Desert Invitational in Goodyear, Arizona, has been selected as the Coca-Cola Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Week.

Bergland carded rounds of 70, 72 and 70 for a school-record 212 total at the Golf Club at Estrella. Her pair of 70s are personal bests and her 142 total after two rounds was a personal record and two shots shy of the school mark.

Her performance helped the Cal Poly women’s golf team claim its third championship trophy of the 2016-17 season.

Bergland is averaging 75.2 strokes over 26 rounds this season with three top-10 finishes and five rounds of par or better.

The Palos Verdes High School graduate owns a 76.48 career scoring average, which will be a school record if it holds up. Bergland has 16 career top-20 finishes and eight career rounds of par or better.

Cal Poly will compete in the Big West Conference Championship next Sunday through Tuesday at the Oak Quarry Country Club in Riverside, site of one of Cal Poly’s victories earlier this season.
