Junior Stacey Blunt carded a 76 (+5) during Tuesday's final round of the Folino Invitational to lead the University of Wyoming women's golf team to seventh in the team standings at +87 (939). The Cowgirls shot a +26 (310) in the final round to stay in the same position they started the round in, while Gonzaga topped the 12-team field at Industry Hills Golf Club at +50 (902).

"It was great to see our team improve today and I'm very excited for Stacey," UW head coach Josey Stender said. "Not only for her first hole in one, but for her consistent performance right out of the gates."

Blunt captured the fifth top-25 finish of her career and best performance of the season thanks to UW's lowest round of the day, which included her first career hole in one on the par-three 17th with a six iron. She finished at 233 (+20). Fellow junior Emily Wood finished just two places shy of the first top-25 finish of her career in 27th after a 79 (+8) in the third round for a total of 236 (+23). Sophomore Samantha Stancato posted a 78 (+7) to finish one place back at 237 (+24). Senior Dana Zamprelli rebounded from a bad second round with a 77 (+6) in the final round to finish at 247 (+34) and freshman Kathleen Kershisnik rounded out UW's five at 249 (+36) with an 87 (+16) in the final round. Redshirt freshman Emily Woodard cut strokes from each of her three rounds and finished with a 79 (+8) for a 261 (+48), while sophomore Kristen Jensen hit an 89 (+18) for a total of 263 (+50).

"Five of our seven rounds today were in the 70's," Stender said. "Woodward and Zamprelli improved tremendously today and, with the exception of one hole, Stancato was right around par. I'm looking forward to working on increasing our confidence in all aspects over the next few weeks before another strong event."

The Cowgirls are off until the MountainView Collegiate on March 15-16 in Tucson, Ariz.
