"This is a great event with a very solid field," said UW Director of Golf Joe Jensen. "It is our first time out this season and it has been a great learning experience for this very young team."

The Cowgirls are led by sophomore Juanita Rico who is currently tied for 47th place after her second round 78 (+6). Juanita, along with the rest of the team had their struggles on just one or two holes on the day.
