SEAL BEACH, Calif. -- The Boise State women's golf team had two individuals finish in the top 20 at The Gold Rush.

Senior Samantha Martin and junior Genevieve Ling finished tied for 15th and tied for 18th respectively. This is Martin's second consecutive finish in the top 20 after finishing tied for 16th at the All There August Challenge, Feb. 14-15.

Martin shot 223 (77-70-76, +7) through three rounds on the par-72, 6,157-yard Old Ranch Country Club and was one of nine golfers in the 80 individual field to notch an eagle throughout the tournament.

The Los Angeles also tied for first in the field on par-3 scoring at two-under.

Ling (75-76-73 -- 224, +8) jumped 12 spots up the leaderboard in the third round to join Martin in the top 20. Ling was tied for fifth in the field with 10 birdies.

"Gen and Sam played well this week," Boise State head coach Nicole Bird said. "Their ball striking was really good and they were able to make some good putts. Gen had seven birdies today so she definitely put the ball in the right place."

Boise State finished seventh in the team standings -- ahead of Mountain West Conference opponent Nevada -- with a combined score of 912 (309-299-304, +48).

Seniors Sammie Pless (77-76-76 -- 229, +13) and McKenzie Ford (80-82-82 -- 244, +28) and freshman Adara Pauluhn (83-77-79 -- 239, +23) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos.
