FORT COLLINS, Colo. -
The University of Wyoming Women's Golf team tee'd it up for the first time this season at the Ptarmigan Country Club during the Ram Fall Classic Monday for their first two rounds.
The Cowgirls were led by junior Jonelle Martinez who after the first round was tied for 43rd place with an opening 75 (+3). She answered with the only under-par round for the Cowgirls with an impressive 71 (-1), and finished the first day tied for 23rd.
The Cowgirls as a team are in the middle of the pack with an opening total of 601 (+25), good for 13th place.
"Everybody did a great job of sticking with their game plan and we just had a tough time with a couple of holes as a team today," said head coach Josey Stender. "Jonelle and Sarah (Fogerty) have both played this course on multiple occasions and know the in's and out's of this very difficult course."
Fogerty and sophomore Jenna Zamprelli both shot opening 148's (+4) to finish the day tied for 38th place out of 95 golfers. Freshman Juanita Rico and sophomore Molly Black followed with day one scores of 161 (+17) and 164 (+20) respectively.
"If we come out tomorrow and continue to be aggressive with our game, I think our young team will see some success and start to build some confidence," said Stender.
The Cowgirls will finish with the third round of the tournament tomorrow beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Ptarmigan Country Club.
