FRESNO, Calif. --The Fresno State women's golf team placed ninth out of 13 teams in the Peg Barnard Invitational. The two-day tournament was held at the 6,051-yard, par-72 Stanford Golf Club.

The Bulldogs shot 26 over par, 310 in the first round and 18 over par, 302 in the second round of the Peg Barnard Invitational.

The `Dogs were lead by senior Shaylee Yano who placed in the top 20. Yano shot seven over par, 149 (74-75) and finished in a tie for 17th place.

"This was a good tournament for Shaylee," head coach Angie Cates-Moore said. "She hit a lot of great shots and had her irons really dialed in. She was going right at all the flags and hitting great shots. Her short game was also very good. She made a lot of clutch putts today, so there are a lot of positives going in on Shaylee's game right now."

Hannah Sodersten, who finished in a tie for 45th place after round one, placed in the top 30 following round two. Sodersten shot nine shot over par, 151(78-73) and tied for 26th place.

Following round two, Christine Uhalde swung into a tie for 59th place after finishing in 68th place after round one.

"It was a great comeback by Christine and Hannah today, which really helped the team," Cates-Moore said. "It was nice to end on a positive note as we head into Cal."

The Bulldogs return to action on Feb. 25-26 at the Cal Classic in Pleasanton, Calif.
