The University of Wyoming Cowgirl golf team wrapped up play at the CSU Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic on Tuesday afternoon finishing in 16th place in the 17-team field at 944 (+80). Senior Samantha Stancato recorded the Cowgirls’ lowest score of the final round with a 76 (+4) on the par-72, 7,223-yard Ptarmigan Country Club.

 “We played really good golf today,” UW head coach Josey Stender said. “We battled some weather on the most difficult stretch of the course, which made it difficult for our players to score to their potential.”

Junior Kathleen Kershisnik was Wyoming’s top finisher in the 90-golfer field finishing tied for 60th place recording a 234 (+18). She shot an 86 (+14) in Tuesday’s final round. Stancato and junior Emily Woodard finished play tied for 65th place at 236 (+20). Woodard carded a final-round tally of 79 (+9).

Sophomore Taylor Dorans, who is playing as an individual, shot an 82 (+10) on Tuesday. She finished the tournament tied for 80th place at 241 (+25). Sophomore Mackenzie Barrie shot her best round of the tournament at 77 (+5) on Tuesday. She finished in 83rd place at 243 (+27). Redshirt freshman Gabrielle Gibson finished her first tournament at Wyoming in 87th place with a three-round scorecard of 249 (+33).

“The next few weeks of practice will be valuable for us as we gear up to host our own tournament in California,” Stender said.

San Diego State was the team champion with a score of 870 (+6). The Aztecs’ Emma Henrikson took the individual crown with a score of 211 (-5).

The Cowgirls return to action at the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate Sept. 28 and 29 at the Classic Club in Palm Desert, Calif.
