VALLEJO, Calif. -
The University of Wyoming women's golf team took to the links Saturday in Vallejo, Calif., to compete in the Hiddenbrooke Intercollegiate and after one round found themselves in third place in the 18 team field.
The Cowgirls shot a team score of 327 (+39), which is only six strokes behind the leading Central Arkansas ladies.
Sophomore Molly Black and junior Jonelle Martinez led the team with their matching 80 (+8), to have them both in a tie for sixth place. Fellow junior, Sarah Fogerty was not far behind with her opening 83 (+11) good for a tie of 24th place. Sophomore Jenna Zamprelli concluded the first round with an 84 (+12) and a tie for 31st place.
"Molly and Janelle played really tough today and really hung in there on a day where the conditions were not great," said head coach Josey Stender. "There was quite a bit of wind to combine with a lot of hazards and elevation changes made for a tough course. I think if we gut it out we can make up those strokes, hopefully the conditions are better."
The Cowgirls will have two more days to make up the six strokes as the Intercollegiate will conclude on Monday March 16.
