So Far So Good For Boise State Women Golfers

It's early, but so far good news for the Bronco women golfers competing at the WAC Championsihps. The seventh-seeded Boise State women's golf team did better than expected today and is tied for third place. However, they are only four strokes ahead of the last place team, which happens to be #31 San Jose State.

The seven Western Athletic Conference women's golf teams are within 11 strokes of each other after one day of the WAC Championships in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Top seed and #31 San Jose State, surprisingly, is in last place after the first round, but only five shots away from second.  Hawai'i is in first with a team score of 299 followed by Fresno State at 305.

 

Boise State is tied for third place with two of its better golfers actually bringing up the rear for individual scores.  The Broncos shot a 306 today.  Senior Lindsey Huebert shot a 1-over 73 to rank second individually.  Huebert finished 14th last season at the WAC Championships.  Iris Ocariza is tied for 18th place with a 77.  Mandi Hedberg and Nikki Olson shot 6-over 78's, tied for 20th place. 

 

The Boise State University women's golf team stands tied for third place through round one of  the Western Athletic Conference Championships after matching the school-record for low round score at a conference championship by shooting a 306 (+18), Monday.  Katie Street is all the way back in 30th place with an 8-over par 80.  

 

The WAC Championships continue tomorrow at the New Mexico State Golf Course and the final round is set for Wednesday.
