Women's Golf First At Canes & Cardinal Classic; All Five Players In Top-20

Miami Lakes, Fla.The San Jose State women’s golf team shot the low rounds of the day and lead the Ryder Canes & Cardinal Classic by 12 shots over Washington State after the first two rounds on Monday. All five Spartan players are among the top-20 players in the tournament.

The Spartans shot a 293 in the first round and followed that up with a 298 in the second round, the only team to shoot below 300 in the second round. The team leads the tournament in par four and par five scoring and in birdies with 21.

“We played really well today,” said San Jose State assistant coach Dana Dormann. “We did a good job of handling the heat which was a factor in the first round. In the second round, the wind picked up and was gusting to about 25 mph.”

Individually, Erica Moston leads the tournament with an even par 144. She shot her 12th under-par round with a 71 in the first round and followed that up with a 73. She had six birdies and 25 pars for her two rounds.

Katrina Delen-Briones is tied for second with two other players. She shot a two-over par 146 with a 73 in each round. She had five birdies and 25 pars in her two rounds played.

The three other Spartans are also in the top-20. Shraddhanjali Singh is tied for 12th with a 151 (76-75), while Cristina Corpus is tied for 17th at 153 (75-77). Jody Ho, competing as part of the team for the first time in her collegiate career, shot a 74 in the first round, followed by a 79 to tie at 20th with a 153.

“Our steady play was evident in our scores,” said Dormann. “Erica was her normal self, while Kat did great with her steady play over the two rounds. Jody did a great job in the first round since it was her first time playing as a countable score.

“We just need to keep making putts on Tuesday for us to be successful. Our short game can make the difference in winning and losing, especially if the wind picks up like it did today.”

The Spartans play the final round on Tuesday with an 8 a.m. shotgun start.
