Four Cowgirls improved their scored during Monday's second round of the SDSU Farms Invitational, as the University of Wyoming women's golf team cut 24 strokes of its first round total with a 320 (+32) during the second round on The Farms Golf Club. UW still sits 15th in the 15-team field at 664 (+88), but gained 11 strokes on Michigan today and now trails them by just eight. Top-ranked USC leads the event at 587 (+11), No. 45 UNLV is second at 600 (+24) and No. 8 Arizona and No. 31 Pepperdine are tied at 604 (+28) to round out the top four.

"We played a lot better in conditions that were more difficult today," UW head coach Josey Stender said. "We learned from situations yesterday and it just came down to confident club selection based on the elements. Our round today was one back of New Mexico and four back of San Diego State on its home course, which are two of the premier programs in the Mountain West, so we showed we can compete today."

Junior Emily Wood continues to be the top Cowgirl at 158 (+14) in a tie for 43rd, after shooting UW's lowest round of the day with a 78 (+6). She is followed by fellow junior Stacey Blunt at 163 (+19) with an 81 (+9) to tie for 57th. Freshman Kathleen Kershisnik carded an 80 (+8) and has a total of 167 (+23) to sit tied for 68th. Senior Dana Zamprelli is 81st after trimming 14 strokes off her first round total with an 81 (+9) in the second round to total 176 (+32). Sophomore Samantha Stancato shot 86 (+14) in the second round.

"Emily was very steady today," Stender said. "She accomplished one of her goals coming into today, which was to not have anything worse than a bogey and that's quite an accomplishment on this course. Kathleen has shown so much poise for a freshman. She had some really back luck today, but didn't let it get her down. She stayed confident and stayed positive and that's what you have to do out there."

Tuesday's final round tees off at 9 a.m. MT. Fans can follow live stats on GolfStat.com.
