Feb. 26, 2013

FRESNO, Calif. --The Fresno State women's golf team placed 10th out of 11 teams in the Cal Classic. The two-day tournament was held at the 6,304-yard, par-72 Ruby Hill Golf Club.

The Bulldogs shot 316 in the first round and 309 in the second round of the Cal Classic.

"We obviously would have liked to perform a little better these past two weeks, but these have been two great tournaments for us to be a part of and two challenging courses where we faced some of the best teams in the country," head coach Angie Cates-Moore said. "These tournaments are going to help us down the road. We are doing a lot of things right, we just need to eliminate the mistakes."

The `Dogs were led by Madchen Ly who placed in the top 30. Ly shot nine over par, 153 (80-73) and finished in a tie for 27th place.

"Madchen hit the ball great today and had the putter working," Cates-Moore said. "She's got some confidence and feels good about her game. She did great today."

Hannah Sodersten, who finished in a tie for 36th place shot twelve over par, 156 (77-79).

Senior Shaylee Yano also tied for 36th place and shot twelve over par, 156 (79-77).

"Shaylee has played really consistent this spring and is playing a key part in our line up," Cates-Moore said.

The Bulldogs return to action on March 4-5 at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational.
