April 11, 2013
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Boise State senior Hayley Young has been selected Mountain West Women's Golfer of the Week for tournaments played April 8 - 10.
Young paced the field of 103 golfers at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic held at the Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler, Ariz. The Honolulu, Hawaii, native carded a 2-under-par 214 (71-71-72) on the par 72, 6,299-yard course. Young recorded five birdies in the final round and 10 total across the 54-hole tournament en route to the first individual victory of her career and 10th all-time by a BSU golfer. The medalist honor is also the first by a Bronco since Katie Street won the Wolf Pack Invitational from Sept. 26 - 28, 2005.
Young, who was the only individual to finish the tournament under par, tied her career best with rounds of 1-under 71 on each of the first two days of the tournament. Her three-round total of 214 earned her a seven-stroke victory, marking the second-largest margin of victory all-time for a Bronco and the largest since Acey Erlandson won the Portland Invitational by nine strokes from Sept. 27 - 28, 1999.
Boise State secured its sixth all-time team title, as the Broncos posted a combined score of 37-over 901 (307-307-293) to lead all 19 teams. The victory marked BSU's first outright title since winning the Bengal Classic from April 17 - 18, 2000.
Through 23 rounds, Young leads Boise State and ranks third in the Mountain West with a 75.13 stroke average. Young now has 10 career top 10 finishes, including four in the 2012-13 campaign. This marks the first career MW Golfer of the Week award for Young.
