BOISE, Idaho -
After two rounds of cold, windy and rainy playing conditions, the University of Wyoming Cowgirl golf team finds themselves in seventh place of 17 teams at the Bronco Fall Invitational in Boise, Idaho. UW shot team rounds of 310 (+26) and 320 (+36) on Monday, and their total of 630 is eight strokes back of sixth place Montana.
UC Davis and Nebraska share the tournament lead at 588 (+20). The Huskers' Kate White leads the individual race with a score of 140 (-2).
"I was pleased with our first round and how we put ourselves in good position for the rest of the event," said Cowgirl head coach Josey Stender. "It is frustrating though how lately we get worse in the second round. We need to finish stronger than we have been.
"Tomorrow we need to take advantage of the holes that we can. We need to be smart and score when given the opportunity."
Cowgirl junior Laura Mengelkamp, 153 (+11), had the best first day for UW and is tied for 16th place out of 90 participants. Mengelkamp shot 77 (+6) and 76 (+5). Fellow Wyoming junior Kaelee Aegerter continued her strong play of late and is tied for 41st at 160 (+18).
A round of 18 holes will conclude the tournament on Tuesday morning.
The event, hosted by Boise State University, is being played at the Banbury Golf Club which plays to a par of 71 and measures 6,177 yards.
