Junior Betsy Kelly
Oct. 2, 2012
COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Colorado State women’s golf team fired a final-round score of 304, the Rams’ second-best single-round effort of the young season, moving up two spots to close play at the Johnie Imes Invitational in a tie for 13th at The Club at Old Hawthorne on Tuesday.
“The team responded today,” said interim head coach Susan Jennings. “Our overall attitude and approach was much better and it showed on the course.”
Betsy Kelly was key to the Rams’ ascension, as the junior carded a season-low round of 74 (+2) to move from 53rd into a tie for 42nd. Kelly’s previous low on the season was a 76 that helped the Rams to a season-best team score of 298 during Round 2 of CSU’s own Colonel Wollenberg Ptarmigan Ram Classic in early September.
“That's as good as I've seen Betsy hit the golf ball all year,” added Jennings. “Even going back to last spring, so that’s a huge plus for us.”
The Rams’ top finisher was junior Emily Roering, who tied for 25th with three-round score of 225 (+9). Roering, who has led the Rams in each of their three tournaments to open the 2012-13 season, got off to a slow start, but rallied with birdies on her final two holes.
“Emily had a really strong finish today,” added Jennings. “Now we just need to find a way to get her going early on.”
Christina Spinzig continued to improve throughout the tournament as well. After carding rounds of 83 and 79 on Day 1, the junior shaved three more strokes from her score to finish tied for 66th with teammate Mikayla Tatman.
Sophomore Jessa LaBarbera also bounced back for the Rams, scoring for the team with a final round of 79 (+7).
The Rams now return to Fort Collins for a week of preparation before competing Oct. 8-10 in Las Cruces, N.M., at the Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Intercollegiate hosted by New Mexico State.
