BOULDER, Colo. -
The University of Wyoming women's golf team finished the first day and the first two rounds of the CU/Heather Farr Invitational on Monday. After 36 holes they sit in a tie with Boise State for 11th place of 20 teams.
After the Cowgirls first round they had a team total of 306 (+18) but Wyoming finished the day strong with the second best team event round in UW history with a 294 (+6).
"It was one of the best days we have had as a team from top to bottom. They played great in the second round today," said UW head coach Josey Stender.
The Cowgirls were led by freshman Juanita Rico who shot an opening round 78 (+6) but answered with an incredible 69 (-3). That mark ties the UW school record for a single round. With her total of 147 (+3) strokes Rico is entering the final round tied for 23rd place.
"You always want to play better in the second round on the same day because the hole placement hasn't changed," said Stender. "It was really good to see their adjustment. They are really starting to come together."
The Cowgirl team will hit the links beginning the final round at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow.
"Tomorrow we need to just keep our focus and really finish the tournament on a good note," finished Stender.
