ERIE, Colo. – Colorado State’s Brianna Espinoza was able to move up the leader board at the NCAA west regional at Colorado National Golf Course on Friday. Espinoza started Day 2 tied for 54th but ended the day tied for 30th.
Despite tough weather conditions, Espinoza improved on her first-round score of 76 with a 73 (+1) putting her at 149 (+5) for the tournament.
“It was a cold and wet day, felt like we were in Seattle (2011 NCAA west regional) again,” said Head Coach Angie Collier. “Bri handled the conditions very well.”
Espinoza’s 26 pars for the tournament are fifth among the 126-player field. Collier commented on Espinoza’s consistent play.
“Bri hit 12 greens and was five-of-six on up and downs,” said Collier. “She played so solid and held her composure very well for the tough conditions we were playing in.”
Catherine O’Donnell (-5) of North Carolina leads the tournament followed by Austin Ernst (-4) of LSU and Sydney Burlison (-3) of Stanford.
Espinoza begins her third and final round at 8:45 a.m. MST on Saturday.
