FORT COLLINS, Colo. - On Tuesday, the Colorado State women's golf team completed its first tournament of the season, finishing 11th in the annual Colonel Wollenberg Ptarmigan Ram Classic at the Ptarmigan Country Club.
Junior Emily Roering turned in an impressive third-round performance for the Rams, shooting a 72 (E). After the first two rounds, Roering sat in 42nd place but her outing on Tuesday catapulted her into the top-20 finishers of the tournament (T-20).
Christina Spinzig, who had an impressive first day, struggled during the final 18 holes and slipped into a tie for 48th place. Teammate Betsy Kelly finished right in front of Spinzig, tying for 45th place. Cecilie Krefting competed as an individual and finished 73rd.
Jessa LaBarbera played well on the day but was disqualified shortly after the round for signing an incorrect score card.
New Mexico's Manon DeRoey won the individual title by shooting a 207 (-9) in the tournament, four strokes ahead second place. As a school, Texas Tech produced the second-place, third-place and fourth-place finishers.
The Red Raiders took the team title as they were the only team to shoot under par for the whole tournament (-4). Baylor finished in second place, UNLV took third, San Jose State came in fourth and four other teams - Louisville, Nevada, Long Beach State and New Mexico - tied for fifth.
The Rams will get a chance to improve on this performance when they travel to Albuquerque, N.M., for the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational, Sept. 17-18.
