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.
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.

place with an 8-over par 80.
