BOULDER CITY, NEV. –The Colorado State women’s golf team found itself in last place after Round 1 but was able to gain two spots in the second round of the 11-team UNLV Spring Invitational at Cascata Golf Course. The Rams showed some signs of a team struggling to get going after a three-month hiatus.
“Our ball striking is fine,” said Head Coach Angie Collier. “Our short games are too rusty for this tough of a golf course.”
Arizona leads the field after the first day, carding a two-round total of 583 (+7). Tournament host UNLV (586) is second followed by San Diego State (602).
Leading the Rams, only six strokes behind the leader Nikki Koller (+1) of Arizona, is Brianna Espinoza who is tied for 21st at +7. Betsy Kelly and Sarah Roering are tied for 31st at +12. Jessa LaBarbera is +23 and Christina Spinzig is +28. Collier hopes either LaBarbera or Spinzig can give the team a boost tomorrow.
“We are struggling with our fourth and fifth spots and we must have a decent fourth round score tomorrow to have any chance of moving up in this field,” said Collier.
The final round begins tomorrow at 8 a.m. MST.
