The University of Wyoming Cowgirl golf team wrapped up the fall season with a sixth-place finish at the Firestone Grill Women's Invitational hosted by Cal Poly. UW tallied a total of 635 (+51), after a 319 (+27) in the final round on the par-73, 6,040-yard Cypress Ridge Golf Course in Arroyo Grande, Calif. The Cowgirls' sixth-place finish in the 13-team field was UW's best of the season.

"It was a good way to finish the fall season out," UW director of golf­­ coach Joe Jensen said. "It was a very challenging golf course and the wind really played a factor out there today."

Sophomore Taylor Dorans and redshirt freshman Gabrielle Gibson finished tied for 20th in the 71-golfer field at 157 (+11). Gibson finished the final round at 79 (+6) with Dorans turning in an 80 (+7). Junior Kathleen Kershisnik finished tied for 32nd at 161 (+15). She recorded a team-best 78 (+5) for the final round. Sophomore Mackenzie Barrie shot an 82 (+9) in the final round finishing in 37th place with a two-round total of 164 (+18). Senior Samantha Stancato finished tied for 41st at 166 (+20) after a final round of 87 (+14).  

Santa Clara took home the team title with a score of 600 (+16). CSU-Northridge's Rebecca Bostrom won individual medalist honors at 144 (-2). She was the only golfer to shoot under par.
