Boise State's women's golf team fell to fifth place today at the WAC Tournament in Las Cruces. The third and final round is slated for tomorrow.
Boise State's women's golf team faltered in
round two of the Western Athletic Conference Championships in Las Cruces today. The Broncos shot a 27-over par 315 to fall
from third to fifth in the team standings with the finale tomorrow. Idaho shot to the lead with a 293, 22
strokes better than Boise State. Nevada is in second with a 606, Hawai'i is five strokes back of the
Pack, followed by #31 San Jose State with a 613.
strength of Nevada and weakness of Boise State is devastating news to the
Broncos' hopes of winning the WAC Commissioner's Cup.
If Nevada finishes a combined seven or more places in front of Boise State in men's and women's golf this
week, it would be extremely tough to catch the Wolf Pack, since Boise State does not field either a baseball
or softball team. The men's team is
favored to gain five points on the Broncos, while the women's team is expected
to earn two more points. Currently, Nevada is on pace to get three more
points than the Broncos in women's golf.
Boise State's top individual is freshman
Iris Ocariza, who is tied for 13th place with a 155. Senior Lindsey Huebert and Nikki Olson are
tied for 21st with a 157.
Mandi Hedberg and Katie Street, two of Boise State's stars, are tied for 24th
