Women’s golf recap: Rams show steady improvement on Day 2 of Cowgirl Classic
CSU fourth heading into Wednesday’s final round
CHANDLER, Ariz. – The Colorado State women’s golf team continued play at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic on Tuesday, maintaining its position in fourth place at the Ocotillo Golf Resort, heading into Wednesday’s final round of the tournament.
“We prepared well, and are playing well to the conditions,” said Head Coach Susan Jennings. “We are putting and chipping pretty well. The greens are tough to hit with the wind.”
Playing in slightly colder, but calmer conditions, the Rams were able to take 12 strokes off their team score, finishing with a 308 (+20), thanks to a two-over 74 from junior Christina Spinzig. The Evergreen, Colo., native improved by 13 strokes from her opening-round score of 87 to move up 39 spots into a tie for 40th.
“Christina really played much better today,” added Jennings. “It was good to see her put together a strong round.”
Classmates Emily Roering and Betsy Kelly also turned in sub-80 rounds for the second straight day to score for the Rams. Roering shot a 76 to take three strokes off her Round 1 score and move into a tie for 16th at 11-over. Kelly matched her opening-round 78 and sits one stroke behind Roering with a two-round total of 156 (+12) in 22nd place.
Sophomore Jessa LaBarbera rounded out the scoring for the Rams, matching her Round 1 score of 80 to move into a tie for 34th. Rams’ junior Sarah Roering, competing as an individual, is also tied for 34th in the individual standings after firing scores of 82 and 78 in Rounds 1 and 2, respectively.
Redshirt freshman Mikayla Tatman shot an 81, to take two strokes off of her opening round and move into a tie for 54th in the individual standings.
As a team, the Rams (+52) trail first-place Boise State (+32), and second-place Portland State (+43) while sitting just two strokes behind Xavier (+45) for third place.
Play resumes Wednesday morning with the Rams slated to tee off between 8:09-8:45 a.m. MT on Hole 10. CSU will be paired with Northern Arizona and Sacramento State. Tournament results will be available online at www.GolfStat.com.
