HONOLULU – The Rams completed the second round at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational shooting a season-low 298 (+10). It is the first time since Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Intercollegiate on Oct. 9, 2012 that Colorado State has posted a sub-300 18-hole score.
The strong performance on Wednesday has the team within four strokes of the leader, host Hawai’i (+23), and three Rams inside the top-20.
“We played better today,” Head Coach Annie Young said. “The girls are close to having a breakthrough round. It is great that we have put ourselves in position to have a chance to win the tournament.”
Individually, CSU senior Betsy Kelly continued with her strong play shooting a three-over 75 on Wednesday and she sits in a tie for fourth at five-over. Kelly finished the front nine with a birdie on No. 8 and after the turn, the native of Forest Lake, Minn. birdied holes 10 and 11. She is only four strokes behind the leader, Kaitlen Parsons from Northern Arizona.
Kelly is on pace for her first top-5 finish since the Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Intercollegiate in Oct. of 2012 when she finished in a tie for fifth.
Christina Spinzig, a product of Evergreen, Colo., jumped 14 spots to a tie for fourth-place through 36 holes after shooting an even 72. This tied for the best round of her collegiate career, as she previously carded a 72 at the Mountain West Championsips in April of 2012.
“She played great,” Young said. “It’s great to see her hitting the ball so well.”
Spinzig is one of four competitors to shoot even or below par during the second round.
Rounding out the top-20 for CSU is Emily Roering, who currently sits in a tie for 14th-place after recording a second round score of two-over 74.
Jessa LaBarbera and Sarah Roering, playing as an individual, are both 11-over after 36 holes and tied for 23rd. True freshman Elisabeth Rau, playing in her first tournament for CSU is 15-over.
The final round of the Rams fall season tees off tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. MT (8:30 a.m. HT) and the participants have been regrouped.
