University of Wyoming women's golfers Emily Wood and Stacey Blunt are the top Cowgirl competitors after Monday's second round of the Folino Invitational, as the junior duo is tied for 23rd at +15 (157). The Cowgirls shot +33 (317) as a team in the second round to drop to seventh in the 12-team field, but are just nine strokes back of four teams. Gonzaga continues to lead at +39 (607) at Industry Hills Golf Club.

"We played very well for about 13 holes today as a team," UW head coach Josey Stender said. "There wasn't one thing that stuck out that hurt us. We just need to take care of the little things from top to bottom and really grind it out."

Wood broke a streak of seven consecutive rounds under 80 with an 81 (+10) today for her two-round total, while Blunt posted a 79 (+8). Blunt is seeking the fifth top-25 finish of her career, while Wood is after her first. Sophomore Samantha Stancato fired UW's lowest round of the day with a 77 (+6) to sit two places back at 159 (+17). Freshman Kathleen Kershisnik cut two strokes off her total from yesterday with an 80 (+9) for a total of 162 (+20) and is tied for 35th. Senior Dana Zamprelli had UW's lowest first round, but hit 94 (+23) today for a two-day total of 170 (+28). Sophomore Kristen Jensen carded an 89 (+18) on Monday, while redshirt freshman Emily Woodard cut 16 strokes off her first-round performance with an 83 (+12) on the second day.

"I'm really proud of Samantha today for embracing her weaknesses and struggles from yesterday and improving upon them today," Stender said.

The tournament concludes with 18 holes at 9 a.m. MT tomorrow. Fans can follow live results through GolfStat.com.
