LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The Wyoming womens golf team finished in 15th place out of 20 teams at the Colorado State Ram Fall Classic played at Ptarmigan Country Club in Fort Collins. Wyoming shot a three-round total of 979. UW was led by junior Jordan Lintz (Rapid City, S.D.), who tied for seventh at 224 -- eight over par. Pepperdine won the tournament at 889. Lisa Chang of Pepperdine was the individual winner at 217 -- one over par.

"Jordan (Lintz) had a fantastic tournament," said Wyoming womens golf coach Jill Johnson. "She finished tied for seventh, and I believe this is going to really kick start her year. Jordan had set a goal of finishing in the Top 10 in this tournament, and Im very happy for her. She could have a great, great year.

"We had a lot of young players competing in this first tournament of the season," Johnson added. "We didnt finish where we would have liked, but I believe this tournament provided us a lot of experience. I hope this will be a good building block for the tournaments to come."
