Lady Bronco Golfers Having Tough Time in Reno

It's deja vu for the Boise State women's golf team. New coach, same result. With two days of competition concluded in Reno, the Broncos are in next to last place at the WAC Championships.

The Boise State women's golf team continues to struggle.  The Broncos, which finished next to last in the Western Athletic Conference Championships last year and lost the WAC Commissioner's Cup largely as a result, is once again near the bottom after two days of competition in Reno, Nevada.

Boise State is currently in sixth place with a combined score of 613, having lost their lead on  host Nevada and is now just 14 strokes ahead of last-place Hawai'i.  One round of competition remains in Reno.

San Jose State is running away with the title as expected.  The Spartans hold a 17-stroke lead over Fresno State, following up a superb 285 yesterday with a 289 this afternoon on the par-72 Wolf Run course.  Fresno posted the top score of the day with a 288 to move up to second place, improving upon Monday's 303.  The Bulldogs knocked Idaho down to third place (298-300 = 598) while host Nevada jumped up past Boise State and up two positions to fourth (308-296 = 604).  New Mexico State used consistent 305's to come in fifth.  

San Jose State's Katrina Delen Briones (141) remains the individual leader after a two-over par 74 today and leads the tournament by two strokes over Fresno State's Louisa Lies (70-73--143) who began the day in second place. San Jose State senior Erica Moston is in third after a one-over par 73 and is even par for the tournament.  Four players carded one-under par 71's today, the best score of the day: San Jose State's Cristina Corpus, Fresno State's Hali Coppin, Fresno State's Lindi Covarrubias and San Jose State's Shraddhanjali Singh.

The three-day tournament concludes tomorrow  with final-round tee times beginning at 7:25 a.m.
