Mesa, Ariz.-Two Spartans are in the top-five and helped San Jose State to a second-place finish after the first day of the 2011 Club Golf Western Athletic Conference Women's Golf Championships.
Madeleine Ziegert is tied for second after shooting a one-over par 72 on Friday, four shots out of first place. She had four birdies on her round and saved a bogey on her final round after hitting it out-of-bounds on her second shot.
Katrina Delen-Briones shot a two-over par 73 for her round. She birdied holes eight and 18 on her round.
Others scores for the Spartans included Jennifer Brumbaugh at 77 with a birdie on 15, Rachelle Reali at 80, and Jody Ho at 82 with birdies and the fourth and 18th holes.
"We didn't make any big mistakes in the first round and kept ourselves in contention," said Spartan head coach John Dormann. "Maddie and Kat played solid today for us, and we need everyone to step up their games the next two rounds."
Round two action begins at 7:30 a.m., with the Spartans teeing off starting at 8:50 a.m.
