SAN JOSE, Calif. – The Colorado State women’s golf team closed play at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational on Tuesday afternoon. After a promising start to Monday’s opening round, the Rams struggled on the final day of play, finishing 14th at the Almaden Golf & Country Club.
Kelly finishes as the Rams’ top individual performer for the third time in the Rams’ last four outings. The junior opened the tournament with rounds of 78 and 76, but fell off in the final round of play with a 13-over 85. The round marked the worst of the season for usually consistent Kelly, who had her streak of consecutive sub-80 rounds in tournament play snapped at 14.
Kelly finished with a three-round total of 239 (+23) in a tie for 55th.
Emily Roering, who entered play this week as the Rams’ leader in stroke average, bounced back from a lack-luster second round, in which she was battling an illness. The junior shaved two strokes from Round 2 to Round 3, carding a 10-over 82 to move into a tie for 63rd with teammate Jessa LaBarbera.
LaBarbera opened the tournament with a career-best round of 72, but posted scores of 86 and 87 in Rounds 2 and 3 to finish at 29-over.
Redshirt freshman Mikayla Tatman figured into the scoring the Rams in the final round, matching Kelly’s 85 to finish 73rd overall with a three-round score of 254 (+38).
The Rams return to the course March 15-16, when the team will compete in the MountainView Collegiate in Tucson, Ariz.
