CHULA VISTA, Calif. -
The University of Wyoming Cowgirl golf team finished the third round of the San Diego State Lady Aztec Classic with their best score of the tournament on Tuesday.
"We played much better today although it may not have shown on the scorecard," said Wyoming head coach Josey Stender. "It was nice to get out on the course and play against some good competition."
The Cowgirls were led by freshman Juanita Rico who shot a third round 80 (+8), to give her a total 244 (+28) and a share of 66th place. Following Rico was junior Sarah Fogerty who rounded out the tournament with her third round 84 (+12). As a team the Cowgirls finished in 18th place with a team total 995 strokes.
"Besides getting hung up on one of the par three's Juanita played a very consistent third round," said Stender. "This tournament gave us a great opportunity to see what aspects of our game we really need to work on. We are looking forward to traveling to Sedona, Ariz., to compete in the Northern Arizona/Red Rocks Invitational in two weeks. Our girls can't wait to get back out there and prove themselves on the course."
The NAU/Red Rocks Invitational will be held in Sedona, Ariz., on Feb 28-March 1.
