MARICOPA, Ariz. - Boise State women's golfers have claimed at least a share of medalist honors in each of the last two editions of the Cowgirl Classic, and sophomore Genevieve Ling put herself in position to make it three straight, Monday.

Ling, who was nominated for the Malaysian Amateur Golfer of the Year Award last week, is tied for second place after the first two rounds of the tournament, just one stroke back of San Francisco's Emelie Lundstrom.

Samantha Martin, now a junior, finished tied for first place at last year's Cowgirl Classic, and Hayley Young won the tournament outright as a senior in 2013.

Ling is 1-over through 36 holes, shooting even-par in the first round and carding a 1-over 73 in the second at the 6,186-yard Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club. She recorded three birdies and an eagle Monday, and will enter Tuesday's final round amidst a trio of golfers within a stroke of the lead.

The Broncos shot 300-307 (607, +31) as a team, good for sixth amongst the 22 schools in the field. Boise State is two strokes clear of intrastate rival Idaho, and within eight strokes of second-place Washington State. Mountain West foe Nevada leads the tournament at 594 (+18).

Sophomore Dana Clary (75-78--153, +9), Martin (80-76--156, +12), junior Sammie Pless (77-80--157, +13) and junior McKenzie Ford (76-82--158, +14) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos.

Tuesday's final round is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 8:45 a.m. MT, and the Broncos will be paired with the Vandals, BYU and Seattle. Live scoring is available at
