Senior Dana Zamprelli and sophomore Samantha Stancato both fired season lows of 74 (+2) to help the University of Wyoming women's golf team card a season-low 301 during Saturday's final round of the MountainView Collegiate at the MountainView Golf Course. The Cowgirls finished 15th at 927 (+73), as No. 16 Texas Tech topped the 15-team field at 858 (-6).

"I was very proud of our girls being resilient today," UW head coach Josey Stender said. "We played more like I had hoped to as far as more relaxed, but confident. We had the right level of intensity today and didn't let it take over our emotions."

Zamprelli's and Stancato's performances put them at at 231 (+15) and 233 (+17) to tie for 54th and 59th, respectively, while junior Stacey Blunt was UW's top performer for the second tournament in a row. Blunt notched a 76 (+4) during the final round to tie for 47th at 229 (+13). Freshman Kathleen Kershisnik totaled a 237 (+21) with a final round of 78 (+6) to tie for 67th and junior Emily Wood tied for 74th after shooting 77 (+5) for a 242 (+26). Redshirt freshman Emily Woodard finished at 281 (+65). UW's 301 during the final round bested a 305 the team shot in the opening round of last fall's CSU Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic.

"Both Dana and Sam played very positive rounds today," Stender said. "There were calmer, but still stayed focused. They were choosing the right times when to be aggressive and take advantage of accessible hole locations."

Wyoming now has just one day off, before playing in the BYU Entrada Classic on Monday and Tuesday in St. George, Utah.

"This will be another competitive golf course that will challenge all aspects of our game," Stender said. "I feel great about the direction our team is going. Everyone is continuing to get better and improve and that's what matters this time of year."
