The University of Wyoming women's golf team finished the second round of the BYU Entrada Classic with a 619 (+43) on the Snow Canyon course in St. George, Utah. Wyoming is in 12th place in the 15-team field after a first round of 310 (+22) and shooting a 309 (+21) for the second round.

"I'm really pleased with the team and I don't think I've ever had a two rounds where we averaged 11 birdies as a team," UW head coach Josey Stender said. "I think we had a little trouble getting off the tee in the first round but got better through the day and with how difficult the course and the field is I feel good that we are just a couple of shots back of catching some teams."

Sophomore Taylor Dorans led the Cowgirls after two rounds with a tally of 153 (+9). She is tied for 37th overall with rounds of 77 (+5) and a 76 (+4). Fellow sophomore Mackenzie Barrie followed firing rounds of 78 (+6) and 76 (+4), tying her at 40th place.

"Taylor and Mackenzie are continuing to have great spring seasons and it's just really nice to see them playing consistent," Stender added.

Senior Samantha Stancato ended the second round tied for 44th carding a score of 156 (+12). Redshirt freshman Gabrielle Gibson turned in a score of 160 (+16) with rounds of 83 (+11) and 77 (+5), tying for 60th. Rounding out the Cowgirls is junior Kathleen Kershisnik, who added rounds of 79 (+7) and 85 (+13) for a tally of 164 (+20). Junior Emily Woodard, golfing as an individual, concluded the second round with a total of 163 (+19) with rounds of 87 (+15) and 76 (+4).

California leads the field after the second round with a 586 (-8). San Francisco's Vanessa Ha leads the individuals with a two-round total of 138 (-6).

The Cowgirls return tomorrow morning with an 18-hole round starting at 8 a.m. MT to conclude the tournament.
