LAS CRUCES, N.M.- The Colorado State women's golf team shot a 294 in the first round of the 16-team Price's Give `Em Five Invitational at New Mexico State University Golf Course. CSU is currently in fifth place and seven strokes behind first place Long Beach State (287).
Just behind Long Beach State are Baylor (288), Idaho (290) and North Texas (293). The Rams trail North Texas by one stroke and Head Coach Angie Collier is pleased with the team's effort.
"As a whole, the team played well," she said. "We were very good on the greens and our short games really saved our scores."
The Rams were led by Sarah Roering who shot a one-under par 71 and sits tied for seventh. Collier commented on Roering's play.
"Sarah really hit the ball very well today," said Collier "She played very steady golf."
The event leaders are Chelsey Cothran of Baylor and Teo Poplawski of Idaho (69). Kayla Mortellaro (Idaho), Jaclyn Jansen (Baylor), Andrea Malek (Cincinnati) and Noelle Zavaleta (Long Beach State) are all one stroke behind.
Although she was happy with Round 1, Collier expects an improvement in Round 2.
"Our goal tomorrow is to move up in the field and fire an even par round as a team," stated Collier.
The Rams are in good position to make an impact Tuesday. The second round begins with an 8:30 a.m. MDT shotgun start.
