Bombs Away at Entrada for Bronco Women
March 16, 2015

ST. GEORGE, Utah - The Boise State women's golf team took advantage of the par fives at the Entrada Golf Course Monday, combining to go 9-under in the first two rounds and concluding the day tied for fourth place.

The Broncos, who trail only No. 41 California, tournament-host BYU and Yale in the 15-school tournament, lead the field in par-five scoring (4.78).

Sophomore Genevieve Ling led the way for Boise State, opening with a 4-over 76 at the 6,146-yard course, then shooting 1-under in the second round. Included was a second-round eagle on the par-five first, a hole she also birdied on the opening 18.

Ling's two-round total of 147 (+3) is tied for 14th after the first day.

Three of her teammates - juniors Samantha Martin and McKenzie Ford and sophomore Dana Clary - are just a stroke back. Martin carded rounds of 76-72, Ford posted back-to-back 74s and Clary shot 73-75. At 148 (+4), the trio is tied for 16th.

Boise State shot 299-291 (590, +14), and will enter the final round tied with San Francisco. The eight-stroke improvement from round one to round two helped move the Broncos ahead of Iowa, Kansas State and Minnesota in the team standings.

The Broncos trail Yale, in third place, by a stroke, and the Golden Bears lead the tournament at 8-under (568).

Junior Sammie Pless (77-74) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos, who are slated to tee off for Tuesday's final round beginning at 8:30 a.m. Boise State will be paired with San Francisco and Iowa in the final round.
