PALM DESERT, Calif. – The Colorado State women’s golf team wrapped up the first day of play at the Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate on Saturday.
After two rounds in perfect weather at The Classic Club in Palm Desert, Calif., the Rams currently sit in ninth place out of 20 teams.
The Rams were led by senior Emily Roering, who carded a 1-under 71 putting her in a tie for second place after the morning session, while playing in the CSU No. 1 spot. During the second round, the senior from Glenwood, Minn., shot a 3-over. Entering the final round on Sunday, Roering finds herself in fifth place.
Through two rounds, senior Betsy Kelly shot an 11-over, putting her in a tie for 38th. Within four strokes of Kelly is Christina Spinzig (+13) and Jessa LaBarbera (+15).
When the final round tees off Sunday morning, the Rams will find themselves only six strokes out of a top-5 finish, which would be the first of the fall season. Roering only trails tournament leader Taylor Yoshitake from Cal Poly by three strokes.
Roering will look to set a new three round personal best on Sunday. Her previous low is 220, at the Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Intercollegiate in 2012 and she enters the final round with a 146. She will also look to post her second career top-10 finish.
As a team, the Rams will look to finish in the top-10 for the third consecutive tournament in 2013-14.
