FORT COLLINS, Colo. -
Junior Molly Black can now write her name in the University of Wyoming Cowgirl record books, as on Monday she set the UW school record for low individual round with her second round of 68 (-4). Black currently sits in a tie for second-place in the Ptarmigan/Ram Fall Classic after two rounds in Fort Collins, Colo.
During Black's first round she shot a 71 (-1), which consisted of four bogeys and five birdies. When she made the turn for the second round she started off on the right foot as she birdied four of the first eight holes until having her sole bogey of the second round. Black would tally one more birdie on her back nine to complete the best round in school history.
Her record breaking round led the Cowgirls to an 11th place spot after 36 holes. The Cowgirls shot 302 and 296 for a total of 598 (+22). They trail the leading Idaho University Lady Vandals with their two-round total 568 (-8).
"I am very proud of Molly and the way she played today," said head coach Josey Stender. "She came in this year very determined and confident and has really put in a lot of hard work and it showed today. The course is set up for some really low scores, and typically the second round scores are lower, I just didn't expect them to be this low."
Black was followed by senior Sarah Fogerty with her two-round total of 146 (+2), as she closed out the day with her second round 72 (E) and enters the final round in a tie for 25th place. Sophomore Juanita Rico followed up her first round 80 (+8) with a second round 73 (+1) to have her start the final round in a tie for 57th place.
"When you play against such a high level of competition there is not much room for error and its good for us to get out there early and see great golfers," said Stender. "If we continue to learn from our mistakes we can make up some ground tomorrow."
The final round will begin with a shotgun start at 8:30 am with live results that can be followed at www.golfstat.com.
