She and the Spartans finished the third round of the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic Tuesday and the team finished sixth with an 871, including a 289 for the second-lowest team score of the day.

She recorded three birdies and an eagle during her round and finished the tournament with 10 birdies. Delen-Briones eagled the par 4, 386 -yard 17th hole as she hit an 8-iron from 135 yards in the rough. The ball bounced, rolled, hit the flag and dropped in the hole.

"Kat had a interesting round today," said San Jose State head coach John Dormann. "After a triple-bogey on hole nine, she rebounded nicely with the birdie on 12, eagle on 17 and birdie on 18. After her eagle, good things started happening for her, and she finished the round strong with a birdie on the hole three."

Cristina Corpus and Shraddhanjali Singh each shot even par 72 for the final round. Corpus made birdies on holes one and two, while Singh had four birdies on holes two, six, 16 and 18. Corpus finished the tournament in 24th place at 220, while Singh was 19th at 219.

"Everyone contributed for us in our first tournament of the year which is important for us," said Dormann. "Today there were perfect golf conditions, and we shoot the second-lowest team score. Now, we have time before our next tournament to work out what we need to improve."

The Spartans return to action in October with two tournaments. The team plays at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Redmond, Wash., October 5-7, and at the Stanford Intercollegiate October 16-18.
