The University of Wyoming women's golf team concluded action at the BYU/Dixie Classic in St. George, Utah, Wednesday afternoon as they dropped to ninth place out of 15 teams.

The Cowgirl's ninth-place finish and three-round total of 947 (+83) was just five strokes behind eighth place Texas State and 70 strokes behind the leading Denver University Pioneers.

Jonelle Martinez finished the two-day tournament in a tie for 18th place with her final round 76 (+4). Martinez had two of the best round totals in the tournament while Sarah Fogerty had the other. Fogerty was right behind Martinez as she finished in 26th place. She shot a final round 79 (+7) for her three round total of 235 (+19).

"Jonelle had a great tournament and played great today," said UW head coach Josey Stender. "We are a little disappointed since our first round was so good. Once we get some consistency back into our games we will be where we know we can be."

Molly Black and Juanita Rico finished the Dixie Classic in a tie for 43rd place with matching 243's (+27). While Mikala Henzlik followed in a tie for 55th place.

Up next for the Cowgirls will be their host tournament held in Chandler, Ariz., at the Ocotillo Golf Course, April 6-7.

"We have about ten days of quality practice before we head down to Chandler, Ariz., and host our own tournament where we placed second in last year," finished Stender.
