The University of Wyoming Cowgirl golf team turned in a tally of 301 (+13) for its lowest score of the season Tuesday during the second round of the New Mexico State Invitational in Las Cruces, N.M. The Cowgirls are in 11th place in the 14-team field with a score of 602 (+27).

"It was great to see more consistency from everyone," UW head coach Josey Stender said. "I felt that we struggled a little bit on the greens and going into tomorrow we will play better if we can just trust our feel for the course."

Senior Samantha Stancato led the Cowgirls on the second day, firing a season-low 74 (+2). She sits tied for 30th in the 81-golfer field with a two-round total of 149 (+5). Sophomore Taylor Dorans also added a season low with a 75 (+3). She is tied for 51st with fellow sophomore Mackenzie Barrie at 152 (+8). Barrie turned in a scorecard of 76 (+4) for the second round.

Freshman Sarah Hankins finished the second round at 76 (+4). She is tied for 56th with a two-round tally of 153 (+9). Redshirt freshman Gabrielle Gibson is tied for 60th at 155 (+11), after a round of 81 (+9). Junior Kathleen Kershisnik, playing as an individual, shot a 77 (+5), as she is tied for 56th at 153 (+9). Freshman Klara Castillo is tied for 72nd with a two-round tally of 159 (+15).

"We are at that point in the season where they have put in all the work and now it is about who can trust their abilities and mindset," Stender said.

Idaho maintains its lead atop the leaderboard at 571 (-5) after the second day of competition. Grand Canyon's Charlotte Jaengkit and BYU's Lea Garner share the top individual spot at 138 (-6).
