BOULDER CITY, Nev. - The Colorado State women’s golf team had a tough day Tuesday at the 16-team Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown at Boulder Creek Golf Club. The Rams started the day hoping to gain some ground on the leaders but were unable to do so.
“Our round today was disappointing," said Head Coach Angie Collier. "We had early tee times and had a chance to capitalize on the good weather. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the job done and we lost some ground on the field.”
CSU finished the day tied for 14th with a two-round total of 604. The tournament leader is UC Davis (-9) followed by UC Irvine and Pepperdine (-2). San Diego State is one stroke out of third and UNLV rounds out the top-five at 2 over.
Brianna Espinoza and Betsy Kelly dropped back some but are still in great position to earn top-20 finishes. Espinoza is tied for 20th with a two-round total of 145 (+1) and Kelly is tied for 27th with a 146 (+2). Sarah Roering shot a 155 (+11) over two rounds and Jessa LaBarbera is at 158 (+14). Emily Roering, who has fought injury the entire fall season, had to withdraw from Round 2.
Grace Na (-9) of Pepperdine was able to hold on to her first-place position by one stroke over Kayla Mortellaro (Idaho). Liv Cheng (-6) of Pepperdine is third and Jessica Chulya (-6) of UC Davis is fourth. Tied for fifth at 4 under are Noelle Zavaleta (Long Beach State), Teo Poplawski (Idaho) and Bev Vatananugulkit (UC Davis).
“Tomorrow is a new day and we want to finish our fall season with a good round,” said Collier.
The final round begins Wednesday with a 7 a.m. MDT shotgun start.
