Fresno, Calif.--Two Spartans are in the top-10 individual standings, and the San José State women's golf team is in fourth place after two rounds of the Fresno State Classic at the Copper River Country Club in Fresno, Calif.
My Leander is tied for third place after two rounds at 147. She shot a 74 in the first round and followed that up with a 73 in round two. On the day, Leander made two birdies in each round and had 25 pars over 36 holes. She finished her first round with a birdie on #12 and six consecutive pars to finish.
Kathleen Rojas is tied for ninth after shooting a 77 and 74 for a 151. She made three birdies in her first round and two in the second round. Her second round featured seven consecutive pars (holes 7-13).
Regan De Guzman is tied for 12th after shooting 77-75-152. She made just one birdie on the day but recorded 15 pars in the second round and 12 pars in the first. Rachelle Reali is tied for 21st at 156 (77-79), while Kim Cifuentes is tied for 25th at 157 (80-77). She made five birdies over the two rounds.
The Spartans ended the day in fourth place at 604 after shooting 305-299, and trails leader Boise State by seven shots. San José State was tied with Cal State Northridge after the first round at 305. The Matador's Clariss Guce shot a 67 in the second round to card a 143 after two rounds and has a three-shot lead over Samantha Martin of Boise State.
"Our short game was poor today," said Spartan head coach John Dormann. "We had a bad day putting and will be spending more time working on that tonight. We missed some down-wind par 5s, and if we missed greens, we were poor getting the ball up-and-down. This was very disappointing after the way we played at our last tournament. We have to go out tomorrow and make putts."
Final round action begins Tuesday with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Live scoring can be found at www.golfstat.com.
