RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Boise State sophomore Genevieve Ling led the Broncos in the second round of the 2015 Mountain West Women's Golf Championships Tuesday, shooting even-par as the Broncos matched their total from the opening day of the event.

Ling recorded three birdies and three bogeys at the par-72, 6,291-yard Dinah Shore Tournament Course at the Mission Hills Country Club, making one of the field's largest moves up the leaderboard on the second day of the tournament. At 151 (79-72, +7), she will enter Wednesday's final round tied for 18th - 16 spots higher than when she began the second round.

Sophomore Dana Clary, making her first appearance at the MW Championships, leads the Broncos with a two-day total of 149 (75-74, +5) and is currently tied for 10th.

Junior Sammie Pless is tied for 14th after two rounds (73-77--150, +-6).

"Today played a little tougher," head coach Nicole Bird said. "Midway through our round the wind picked up and it rained for a bit, so we had to make some adjustments. While we didn't get off to as good a start as yesterday, we finished strong the last three holes so that saved us.

"It was hard to find birdies out there today. Samantha and Genevieve played really well on the back nine, and I think they are ready for the final round. Dana has played really steady both rounds. I'm excited to see if everyone can all come together for tomorrow."

Boise State checked in with a 301 (+13), matching Monday's opening round. At 602 (+26) for the tournament, the Broncos remained in fifth place, five strokes back of 20th-ranked UNLV.

After combining to go 12-over on Nos. 16-18 yesterday, the Broncos were just 3-over on the course's closing holes, Tuesday.

Juniors Samantha Martin (79-78) and McKenzie Ford (74-83) are each tied for 32nd at 157 (+13). Martin shot even-par on the back nine Tuesday, picking up birdies on each of the par-3s.

San Jose State and San Diego State are tied atop the team standings at 589 (+13), and the Aztecs' Milagros Chaves leads individually at 140 (-4).

The Broncos are scheduled to begin teeing off for Wednesday's final round at 8:45 a.m. MT, and live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
