Wyoming in Tenth Entering Final Round of the Ptarmigan/Ram Classic

Sept. 8, 2003


Two University of Wyoming women's golfers are tied for 20th place, and the Cowgirls are in 10th place after the first 36 holes of the Ptarmigan/Ram Classic being hosted by Colorado State University.

Cowgirl freshman Michelle Camaione and sophomore Bailey Adcock are both tied for 20th place in the field of 90 women's golfers. Camaione and Adcock both shot two-round totals of six-over par 150. Camaione is competing as part of the Wyoming team that shot a 36-hole total of 619, while Adcock is competing as an individual.

San Francisco is leading in the team competition. USF holds a commanding 16-stroke lead over second place Nevada. Host CSU is in third, 22 strokes back of San Francisco.

The individual leader is Kristi Larsen of USF. Larsen shot five-under total of 139 on Monday. She holds a three-stroke lead over Alana Condon of Nevada, who shot a two-under par total of 142.

"The girls played fabulous today," said UW women's golf coach Jill Rettinger. "The round of 303 we shot in the morning round is the best round any of my teams have shot at UW during the seven years I've been coaching at Wyoming.

"Michelle Camaione (a true freshman) shot a two-over par round of 74 in her first college round and followed that up with a four-over par 76 in the afternoon. Sophomore Bailey Adcock started with a 79 in the morning, but came back with an outstanding round of one-under par 71 in the afternoon. Both of them are tied for 20th.

"For the girls to play the way they did on the first day of the season is very encouraging. I can't wait to see what we can do in Tuesday's final round."

The Ptarmigan/Ram Classic will conclude with a final 18-hole round on Tuesday at the Ptarmigan Country Club. Ptarmigan measures 6,113 yards and plays to a par of 72. The final round is scheduled to tee off at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
