Oct. 21, 2002

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Playing in their final tournament of the 2002 fall season, the Wyoming Cowgirls opened the Boise State Bronco Fall Classic with a round of 323 on Monday to put themselves in 11th place in the field of 16 teams. Oral Roberts University leads the tournament at 295.

Wyoming was led by seniors Alison McGuire and Kim Nissen and freshman Bailey Adcock. McGuire fired an opening round of six-over par 78 to place her in a tie for 25th. Nissen and Adcock shot identical rounds of seven-over par 79. They are tied for 33rd place. Kelly Gardner of Eastern Washington leads the tournament after shooting a two-under par round of 70 on Monday. The tournament will conclude with a final 18-hole round on Tuesday.

"Alison (McGuire), Kim (Nissen) and Bailey (Adcock) all played consistent rounds on Monday," said UW women's golf coach Jill Rettinger. "We needed that fourth individual score today to really put us in a strong position in the team standings. Hopefully, tomorrow we will get a fourth player to step up and give us a good score."

UW will enter Tuesday's final round six strokes back of ninth-place teams Idaho (317) and Weber State (317), seven strokes behind eighth-place Montana State (316) and eight strokes back of seventh-place Montana (315).

The Boise State Bronco Fall Classic is being played at the Falcon Crest Golf Course in Kuna, Idaho. The course measures 6,044 yards and plays to a par of 72.
