Boise State Women's Golf Slips To 5th In WAC

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.

 

The 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 place.
