LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming women's golf team finished play at the Colorado State Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins, Colorado on Tuesday. UW was 16th of 18 teams after three rounds with 953 strokes. Colorado State University won their own tournament with a score of 876.
Freshman Laura Mengelkamp (Dover, Pa.) led the Cowgirls for the second straight tournament by finishing tied for 15th overall after rounds of 74, 74 and 77. Also for the second straight outing, fellow freshman Lindsay Bauknecht (Vienna, Va.) played well for Wyoming with rounds of 79, 78 and 78. Additionally for UW, was Michelle Camaione with rounds of 81, 80 and 82, Shala Hanson scoring 81, 88 and 82 and Whitney Hernandez with 87, 87 and 83. Each team played five golfers and counted the four best scores.
"We couldn't quite get it going as we'd like to this tournament," said head UW women's golf coach Jill Rettinger. "Our two freshmen really stepped up and played well. This was great experience for them, since college play is so much different than high school. As a team we need to get to four-deep, instead of two-deep like the last two days. I look forward to some good intrasquad competition this week to see who will travel to our next tournament."
The 54-hole Colorado State Ram Fall Classic was played at the Ptarmigan Golf Club. Ptarmigan plays to a par of 72 and measures 6,113 yards.
Wyoming next plays at the Denver University Intercollegiate on September 20 and 21.
