Women's Golf Notes: Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational

Sept. 20, 2013


Next on the tee...

The Colorado State women’s golf team travels to Manhattan, Kan., where they will play in the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational on Sept. 23-24. The Rams are the lone representative from the Mountain West in the tournament which features 15 teams, including teams from the Big 10, Big 12, C-USA, WAC and Missouri Valley, to name a few.

Ptarmigan Ram Classic tournament format...
The 15 team field will be participating in a 54-hole tournament to be played on the par 72, 6,181-yard Colbert Hills Golf Course, a public course located in Manhattan, Kan. Playing in threesomes, the teams will play 36 holes in a shotgun start beginning at 7:30 a.m. MST on Monday, Sept. 23. The final 18 holes to be played on Tuesday, Sept. 24, will begin at 7:15 MST. The low four individual scores will determine the team scores for each round.

Returning Rams...
Colorado State returns one of their most experienced group of players in many years. The 2013-14 roster is made up of four seniors (Emily Roering, Christina Spinzig, Sarah Roering and Betsy Kelly), one junior (Jessa LaBarbera) and a pair of sophomores (Mikayla Tatman and Haley King) with collegiate playing experience. New to the CSU women’s golf program is Elisabeth Rau, from Irving, Texas, and Yesong Han out of Yuma, Ariz.

Last Round...
Colorado State hosted the Colonel Wollenberg Ptarmigan Ram Classic to open the 2013-14 season. The Rams finished in a tie for 8th place after a strong performance from senior Sarah Roering who carded a three-round total of 224, good for 20th place.

The Rams’ lineup...
Colorado State’s lineup for the Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational will be led by senior Emily Roering. Senior Sarah Roering and junior Jessa LaBarbera will play the Nos. 2 and 3 spots for the Rams, while Betsy Kelly will compete in the 4 spot. Redshirt-sophomore Mikayla Tatman, who played in eight tournaments in 2012-13 will round out the CSU lineup.

Success in the classroom...
Three of Colorado State’s key performers, seniors Betsy Kelly and Christina Spinzig and sophomore Mikayla Tatman, were honored at the end of the 2012-13 season when the trio was named to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-America Scholar list. Additionally, the CSU women’s golf program was recognized in early June by the NCAA as part of its Academic Progress Rating (APR) Public Recognition Awards, which highlight programs that have posted multi-year APR scores in the top 10 percent for their respective sports. This is the second straight year that the CSU women’s golf program has received APR Public Recognition since the NCAA began tracking data in 2004-05.
