LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Junior Kasey Claussen fired a school-record 67 (-5) during Wednesday’s final round of action at the Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Invitational, to propel the Rams to their sixth consecutive top-10 finish.  Claussen, who opened the tournament with rounds of 75 and 74, ascended four spots after firing the lowest round in the 90-golfer field, and posted a career-best second-place finish. 

“Kasey put together a phenomenal round of golf, today,” said Head Coach Angie Hopkins.  “She narrowly missed a birdie putt on her final hole that would have given her the school record.  She hit the ball extremely well, hitting 17 greens, and just played lights out.” 

Claussen wasn’t the only Ram to post a strong finish as the team cut 19 strokes off of its second-round total to jump from a tie for 12th into sole possession of seventh place.  Junior Natalie Stone bounced back from scores of 82 and 80 in the first and second rounds, respectively, and carded an even-par 72 to finish in a tie for 41st (+16) overall.  Stone finished the day 8-for-11 on up-and-downs and only putted 23 times to help the Rams’ cause.     

Senior Stefanie Ferguson improved by four strokes with a 77 on Wednesday and tied freshman Melissa Martin for 52nd place (+16). 

Sophomore Cecilia Edlund (78-87-80) also competed for the Rams, finishing tied for 81st (+25).

“The conditions today were ideal, and the team responded with a very strong finish,” added Hopkins.  “It will be a huge confidence builder for Kasey, and the entire team, as we close the fall schedule against strong competition, including many MWC teams, in Las Vegas.” 

The Rams have one tournament remaining on their fall slate.  The team tees off next at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown, Oct. 27-29 in Boulder City, Nev.
