Spinzig had one of the best scores of the tournament, shooting a 69
March 16, 2013
Tucson, Ariz. - The Colorado State women's golf team opened play at the 2013 MountainView Collegiate on Friday, finishing the day tied for 11th place. The team put together a balanced performance on the day due to the first round of Emily Roering and the second round of Christina Spinzig. The Rams also saw strong performances from their two golfers that played as individuals, Mikayla Tatman and Jessa LaBarbera.
Spinzig is currently tied for 7th in the tournament after two rounds by shooting a 144 (E), a product of her incredible second round in which she shot 69 (-3). Only three other golfers shot under-70 in either round of the tournament. The junior has set herself up to possibly capture her first top-ten individual performance of her career.
Head Coach Susan Jennings was impressed with Spinzig's Friday performance.
"She played good this morning," said Jennings. "She had one bad hole where she scored an eight but she played great."
Emily Roering, who has been a consistent performer for the Rams, turned in another solid performance on Friday, shooting a 149 (+5). She is tied for 34th after two rounds. After seeing her 14th consecutive round of sub-80 performances snapped last week, Roering bounced back with two sub-80 efforts (R1 - 72 (E), R2 - 77 (+5)) thus far in the tournament.
"She was good this morning but struggled a little bit at the end" said Jennings. "She has had some sort of an illness and fatigue played a factor at the end."
Cecilie Krefting is tied for 59th, while Betsy Kelly is tied for 61st. Sarah Roering rounds out the team, sitting in 80th. Kelly shot 79 in round one and a 78 in round two. She has shot a sub-80 round in 15 of
her last 16 rounds. Freshman Mikayla Tatman and sophomore Jessa LaBarbera, both playing as individuals, turned in a pair of top-50 performances. Tatman, shot 147 (+3) on the day, good to place her tied for 19th after two rounds. She has yet to record a top-20 finish in her young career. LaBarbera shot
a 150 (+6), tying her for 44th.
The Rams return to the course with a shotgun start Saturday morning beginning at 7:30 a.m. MT.
"We played pretty well considering where we were earlier this spring. I think mentally we are in a good place right now," said Jennings.
