RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif.
- Kinsley Bonfilio (80-75-74) improved upon her exceptional score from round two on Wednesday and fired a 2-over 74 in the third and final round to pace the Broncos at the Mountain West Women's Golf Championship. Bonfilio tied for 23rd place to earn the top individual finish for Boise State and the second top-25 finish of her career.

The Broncos (308-323-304 = 935) finished in ninth place as a team, but were able to finish strong with a 16-over 304 in the third round for their best team score of the week.

"We got off to a really rough start today," head coach Nicole Bird said after the round. "It was super windy and we were just a little too excited to play. We were able to calm down, however, and get it back under control after about four holes. We fought really, really hard today and it showed in our results."

"This team played with heart like never before. They left it all out on the course and that was all we could ask. The overall result was disappointing, but I'm glad we came back strong on the final day and were able to have a great final round for these amazing seniors to end on."

Genevieve Ling (79-82-74 = 235) put the finishing touches on what was an outstanding Bronco career with a 2-over 74 in the final round. Ling closed well and was able to card a 1-under 35 on the back nine to end the day on a high note.

The Selangor, Malaysia native wraps up her time at Boise State with several significant spots in the school record book: second in career top-25 finishes (23), the second-best single-season scoring average (74.53 / 2014-15 season) and one of just four golfers to finish a tournament under par (-1, March 4-5 - Red Rocks Invitational), to name just a few accolades.

Dana Clary (80-75-74 = 231) also put the finishing touches on a successful four years wearing the Blue and Orange, shooting a 77 on the final day to tie for 27th.

Clary enjoyed a successful 2016-17 season where she logged five top-25 finishes and two top-10 finishes - including a sixth-place finish at the Red Rocks Invitational (March 4-5) for the best finish of her career. Her scoring average of 75.67 in the 2014-15 season is the fifth-lowest single-season scoring average in school history.

"We are definitely going to miss Gen and Dana next year," Bird said.  "They were our anchors this year and have given so much to our program. Their leadership has been tremendous and their teammates and coaches are sad to see them go. However, we are very excited to see what the future has in store for the each of them!"

Adara Pauluhn (78-83-79 = 240) performed well in the third round with a 7-over 79. She took 41st place on the week.

Jalayne Martinez (80-85-83 = 248) tied for 44th.
