Mortellaro won her first tournament and tied for first in the second. She won by two strokes at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic with a 9-under 207 (70-67-70), Sept. 13-14.  She then tied for top honors in the WSU Cougar Cup, Sept. 20-22.  Mortellaro opened the second tournament with a first round 80, but then responded with back-to-back 70s to record the low rounds of the tournament.  She was 4-over for the three rounds (220-80-70-70).  Mortellaro had a 71.2 stroke average for the month, the best of any WAC golfer.
