VANCOUVER – Shania Remandaban led the UBC Thunderbirds to the women's golf title at the inaugural Canada West golf championships at Kelowna's Okanagan Golf Club. She'll also be able to say she was the first individual to capture the conference women's gold medal in the sport.

Remandaban, a third-year golfer from Coquitlam, B.C., roared back to take the women's individual crown and guided her squad to the win. "It's super cool. When I'm older, I'll be like: I did that first."

Remandaban started the second and final round tied for seventh after an opening-round 78, but she conquered the Bear Course on Sunday with a 2-under-par 70 to earn a three-stroke triumph over Victoria Tse of the Calgary Dinos, UBC's Kate Johnston and Rhiannon Jones of the Victoria Vikes. Remandaban was the only golfer under par Sunday on the 5,742-yard Jack Nicklaus-designed course.
