ST. GEORGE, Utah – The Colorado State women’s golf team finished the BYU at Entrada Classic in ninth place after carding a 54-hole total 961 (+97).
The Rams bounced back after a tough second round, which featured winds gusting over 35 miles per hour, to shoot a 317 in Tuesday’s final round. Out of 16 teams, CSU’s 317 was the sixth-best score on the final day.
The Rams, who have now recorded five Top-10 finishes in Head Coach Annie Young’s first year, were led by junior Jessa LaBarbera.
LaBarbera, who was sick leading up to the tournament, shot a 23-over 239 to record her third Top-20 finish of the season. Entering the year, the native of Allen, Texas, only had one Top-20 finish on her resume.
“It was good to see Jessa play hard despite not feeling well the past week,” Young said. “I was also proud of how Elisabeth (Rau) bounced back after a rough day yesterday.”
Rau, a freshman who continues to impress, shot a 17-over 89 in the second round but came out and dramatically cut down her bogeys on Tuesday. The native of Irving, Texas, fired a 3-over 75, the lowest score by any CSU golfer this week. Entering the final round, Rau was tied for 62nd but Tuesday’s performance shot her into the Top-40 after carding a three-round total of 244.
Senior Emily Roering, who was shooting for a Top-10 finish slipped in the final round and finished tied for 28th. She shot a 54-hole total of 241. Her sister, Sarah, was only five strokes off her pace after carding a 246.
Senior Christina Spinzig rounded out the Rams’ lineup shooting a 253 for the tournament.
The Rams finished well ahead of Mountain West foe Wyoming, which carded a 986 (+122) at the BYU at Entrada Classic.
Minnesota held on for the team title, shooting a 931 (+67) and defeating tournament host BYU by eight strokes.
The Gophers produced the individual medalist, Anna Laorr who shot a 54-hole total of 222 (+6). Laorr tied with Wisconsin’s Alexis Nelson, but was awarded the individual honor in a scorecard playoff.
CSU will now have ten days off before its next event at the MountainView Invitational in Tucson, Ariz., beginning on March 28.
