MANHATTAN, Kan. - Colorado State's women's golf team hung tough on the first day of the 15-team Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational at the Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhattan, Kan.
Battling winds of up to 25 miles per hour during the first two rounds, the Rams sit in 9th place shooting a 70-over 646 but find themselves only 13 strokes out of a top-5 position.
Head Coach Annie Young was quick to point out that everyone had to play in the same conditions but her team will have to improve on Tuesday.
"We didn't handle the conditions well today and need to do a better job of managing our game tomorrow," Young said. "It is important that we learn from today and do a better job moving forward."
Individually, senior Emily Roering led the way for CSU with a 17-over 161. Roering is currently tied for 27th position, but a solid round on Tuesday will put her in the top-20 as she is currently just two strokes out.
The individual Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational leader is Gianna Misenhelter from Kansas State at two-over after a strong one-under second round. The University of Kansas (+26) leads by 13 strokes over host Kansas State.
The final round of action picks back up Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. MT.
